6 Month+ Energy/Environment Vensim Contractor Opportunity

System Dynamics forum users,

I work at Energy Innovation LLC, a San Francisco-based environmental consulting firm with a goal of reducing emissions, to protect the climate, environment, and human health. Since Oct 2013, I have been developing a large Vensim energy policy model. The model will allow a user to adjust roughly 30 policies to different levels of stringency. Policies include things like a carbon tax (which the user sets in $/metric ton CO2e), improved fuel economy standards (which the user sets in terms of miles/gallon), etc. The model's fundamental purpose is to calculate what difference those policies make relative to a BAU (business as usual) base case, from 2013-2030. (That is, it doesn't predict the future on its own. It predicts how the user's policy package will change the future.) The model covers four sectors: Transportation, Electricity Supply, Buildings & Appliances, and Industry. It produces outputs including energy use, emissions of nine different pollutants, and changes to cash flow for government, industry, and consumers. The model operates on a national scale for the United States. It will ultimately be released to the public, for free. Anyone will be able to download, run, and edit the model, or replace the input data. We are also working with a web app developer to build an interactive user interface for a copy of the model running on a server using the Vensim Multicontext DLL.

The model is coming along well, but we're interested in accelerating the process. We are looking to bring onboard someone with system dynamics modeling expertise for a six-month engagement as a contractor (with the possibility of extension based on project needs). Tasks would involve (initially) getting to know the model well, then working to implement new features and changes, locate input data online (e.g. from government sources and academic papers), put input data into the model, write scripts to perform model runs in an automated manner, possibly demoing or explaining the model to others, etc. Someone who is interested in coming to work in San Francisco would be ideal, but we would consider a remote contractor.

For more information, including application instructions, please see the job posting at: http://energyinnovation.org/wp-content/ ... r-Desc.pdf

I can provide more details to people who want to learn more, either for themselves or their students or colleagues. You can email me at jeff [at} energyinnovation.org with any questions. I will edit this post to remove this information when this is no longer relevant. It was initially posted July 9, 2014.

PhD Studentship - Strathclyde Business School

Postby Susan Howick » Sat Jul 05, 2014 2:07 am

Sorry for re-posting the below, but please note that it relates to a PhD Studentship at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.

Getting More from Big Data: Supporting Decision Makers Through Policy Engineering

Informal enquiries to: Profs Susan Howick (susan.howick@strath.ac.uk) or John Quigley (j.quigley@strath.ac.uk), Department of Management Science

Big data offers exciting new prospects for decision support but data mining methods alone are not a panacea and need to be augmented to provide effective strategic decision making support. This project will design and evaluate a process that combines an understanding of the dynamic relationships that enable a system to be controlled with empirical findings identified within big data. The aim of this research is to develop a modelling process that provides rich data to support and validate the dynamic relationships between key variables and control measures, resulting in a tool that can be used to assess options and engineer optimal policy.
This project will bring together modelling methodologies such as system dynamics and statistical methods used with data mining.
The research student will have the opportunity to influence the application area, although specific opportunities are likely to emerge from data sources through Strathclyde University’s Institute for Future Cities.
The studentship covers home/ EU tuition fees and a stipend of £13,863 pa for 3 years. Candidates are required to have an excellent Honours (Undergraduate) degree in a relevant business, scientific or social science subject, and a Masters degree (or equivalent) will be strongly preferred. Interested applicants should send a CV and a short statement of research interest to Profs Susan Howick (susan.howick@strath.ac.uk) or John Quigley (j.quigley@strath.ac.uk), by the 8th August. Applicants need to be UK or EU citizens.
