The Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies at the Italian Research Council (CNR) is inviting applications for one full-time post-doc research fellowship within the Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation (LABSS) to investigate experimentally the effects of group identity on the enforcement and dynamics of social norms.
Strong and highly motivated candidates with a background in experimental social psychology/sociology/philosophy/economics are invited to apply. The appointment will be for one year (12 months). After satisfactory evaluation, it may be extended for an additional period. The successful applicant is expected to start on October 1st 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.

a seminar on "Computer-Aided Speculations in Social Epistemology: A Case Study on the Bounded Confidence Model". Wednesday 5 Feb, at 11:00 in room Piaget; Via S. Martino della Battaglia 44, 00185 Rome (ITALY)
Gianluca Grimalda presenting his work titled “Sanctions and International Interactions Improve Cooperation to Prevent Collective Losses” The use of sanctions is often invoked to bolster international agreements. For instance, it has been proposed to link lack of compliance to climate change agreements with trade sanctions. We investigate experimentally whether sanctions may improve international cooperation.
A project video, offering an overview of the key concepts and motivations of the EU-funded PROTON, as well as of its main outcomes. PROTON is aimed to understand the social, economic, and psychological factors that lead people into organised crime and terrorist groups and to use computational tools for modelling these processes and test interventions aimed to prevent and fight the recruitment process of mafia and terrorist organisations.
This webinar consists of presentations of the Agent-Based Simulations of Organised Crime and Terrorist Recruitment Models (PROTON-S).
The Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies at the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) is seeking a strong and highly motivated candidate for a postdoctoral position (fixed-term appointment of up to a maximum of 2.5 years) with a background in experimental social psychology/sociology/philosophy/economics.
Building the next generation of diplomats and decision makers: this is the long-term goal of the School for Science IN Diplomacy (School4SID), that is being held from 5 to 7 June 2019 in Gaeta, a small historical town on coastline between Rome and Naples.
Mario Paolucci, LABSS co-leader, is one of the researchers involved in the pool of experts of the school. He will give a talk on June 6th about an Agent-Based Simulation approach to science in diplomacy.
