The Dynamics Lab at University College Dublin seeks applications for a Post-doctoral position. The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to work primarily on the project entitled Autonomic Home Area Network Infrastructure and Agent-Based Models. As part of the Dynamics Lab project, the post-doctoral researcher will be expected to use an Agent Based Modelling (ABM) approach to simulate and test various realistic alternatives for domestic energy user behaviour and outcomes within the Home Area Network Infrastructure. This research will provide insights into how individuals can be incentivised over time in order to adopt new and more efficient energy use behaviour in the home and how those behavioural decisions can be maintained over the medium term. This project is part of a major research programme which seeks to design and deliver a Home Area Network (HAN) infrastructure capable of supporting opportunistic decision making pertaining to effective energy management within the home.
