The Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden has several open PhD and postdoctoral positions in Theoretical Biophysics.
We are particularly interested in suitable people with a background in condensed matter theory, statistical physics or computational biology.
For more details, see: http://www.pks.mpg.de/statistical-physics-of-living-systems/join-us/
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the EPFL Data Science Lab in Switzerland, headed by Prof. Robert West. The position will be for a period of one to two years.
Apply here: https://dlab.epfl.ch/2017-03-29-postdoc-position/
A new Scientist position is open at the Allen Institute for Brain Science:
(or, see the posting "Scientist I – Data Analysis in Experiments and Models" at http://www.alleninstitute.org/what-we-do/brain-science/careers/job-search/).
This is an exciting opportunity to join a large team of experimentalists and modelers working together to improve our understanding of the cortex. This scientist will be uniquely positioned to bridge our extensive, standardized experimental datasets (in vivo recordings as well as in vitro characterization of cortical cell types and connections) with datasets obtained from large-scale, data driven simulations of cortical activity and computations. We are collecting vast amounts of data, and this position will be essential for converting such data to knowledge.
The Summer Solstice Conference 2017 (SS2017) on discrete complex systems will be held in Catania, Italy, from June 21-23, 2017. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from around the world working on discrete modeling of complex systems and analysis of their dynamics.
We have extended the submission deadline for contributed papers to May 2, 2017.
Here you can find the link to the official website: https://sites.google.com/site/summersolsticecatania2017/
Abstract submission: deadline May 2, 2017
Early registration: deadline May 10, 2017

3 - 8 September 2017
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of the past editions (2014-2015-2016) of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the Fourth Edition in 2017.
The program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, ecology, physics, etc) for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to student activities (including talks, debates, "social network games").
June 19-30, 2017
