Description

Modular, self-organized communication networks as a foundation of large, complex societies Modular, self-organized communication networks as a foundation of large, complex societies Dan will be responsible for empirically analyzing the communication network structures in ant colonies. He will maintain lab colonies of ants, individually tag the ants with QR-like tags, and film tagged colonies while undertaking various combinations of tasks (foraging, nest construction, etc.). The postdoc will work with a world-leading team of experimental biologists and mathematical computational modelers to analyze the topological and temporal properties of the interaction networks between the individual ants. In addition to ant maintenance and performing and analyzing experiments, the postdoc will meet regularly with the international team via online group meetings, and contribute to the writing of manuscripts resulting from the work. Contributing to experimental design and future work will be actively encouraged.
