Student Responsibilty with support from IIP and/or Host Organization
International Internship Program
Complexity Science Hub Vienna
About:The objective of the Complexity Science Hub Vienna is to host, educate, and inspire complex systems scientists who are dedicated to collect, handle, aggregate, and make sense of big data in ways that are directly valuable for science and society. Focus areas include smart cities, innovation dynamics, medical, social, ecological, and economic systems. CSH is a joint initiative of AIT, IIASA, Medical University of Vienna, TU Graz, TU Wien, and Vienna University of Economics and Business.
Intern Responsibilities: The IIP intern will contribute to the work of the Hub and may be able to conduct research for an independent project. A previous intern worked with a collaborator on expanding an existing network model that demonstrates periodic collapses to identify precursors to the collapse. This work was a mix of theoretical work and implementation of a computer simulation.
Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in network science, big data and complexity science, understanding complex systems and computer science are encouraged to apply. Programming skills would be an asset.
