The School of Politics & International Relations of University College
Dublin (Ireland) is looking to fill a research position for 12 months.

While the position involves engagement with all the usual aspects of
the research project, the role revolves primarily around programming
in the statistical software package R for a range of different
sub-projects within the overall project. These projects include
primarily simulations of the following kind:

·       Monte Carlo simulations to investigate the estimation and
predictive quality of statistical models, in particular in relation to
spatial econometric models;

·       Agent-based simulations to investigate theories related to the
diffusion and spatial patterns of behaviour;

·       MCMC Bayesian analysis for some statistical models,

as well as assistance in the implementation of statistical estimators
and their packaging for public use.

For more detail on this appointment and the requirements, see:, where you can find the
advertisement under reference number 007579. Please contact me
directly if you want to discuss the role in more detail.

Closing date: 25th August 2015.

Kind regards,
