Research assistant

The research assistant is expected to contribute to a project aims to enhance our understanding on if, how, and why collaboration in wildfire crisis management might, or might not, lead to improved outcomes. To that end, the project team will analyze different datasets drawn from recent collaborative wildfire responder networks using new interdisciplinary network modeling approaches. The project will also need to develop other novel methods, and/or combine existing statistical approaches in novel ways. The research assistant will contribute mainly through statistical multilevel network model development, analysis of existing datasets using the software packages R and MPNet, and potentially by complementing existing dataset through new (limited) data gathering and/or integrating other pre-existing datasets. Moreover, the research assistant will interact closely and regularly with the core project team members, participate in regular workshops and meetings, and contribute in writing scientific articles. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish university degree or an equivalent degree from another country in a relevant discipline (e.g. interdisciplinary sustainability science, computational social science, network science, statistics). Application deadline is 30 September 2019.
