I am happy to announce that Dr. Carlos Lemos has accepted our offer of the post-doctoral fellowship position for the Modeling Religion in Norway project.
Dr. Lemos will be joining us full-time in mid-July. He is just completing the dissertation for his second PhD, which is in complexity science from the Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL) and the Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal), entitled "On Agent-Based Modeling of Large Scale Conflict Against a Central Authority: From Mechanisms to Complex Behavior."
In August, he and I will be traveling to Vancouver, Canada, for the International Association for the Cognitive Science of Religion, where he will also get the chance to meet several of the other members of our team.
This new video is an animation of one of my favorite raps by Baba Brinkman. Its production was supported by the Institute for the Bio-Cultural Study of Religion (IBCSR), one of the main collaborators for the Modeling Religion in Norway (MODRN) project.
