Three post-doctoral research associate positions (1+1 years) are available at the University of Barcelona (Spain), to work on the field of complex networks/ network science. Project overviews are provided below.
We are looking for strongly motivated candidates with excellent skills in theoretical modeling, programming/simulation, data collection and analysis, and a keen interest in multidisciplinary research. The candidate should have a PhD in Physics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Science, or any closely related discipline. Proficiency in spoken and written English is required. The successful candidate will undertake the development of analytic and computational tools for the study of multilayer networks, including time dependence, dynamical processes, and underlying metric spaces.
If interested, email a detailed CV together with an expression of interest to email@example.com, indicating "BCN postdoc call" in the subject. We also ask for one reference letter, directly sent via email to the above email address by the deadline. Applications received by October 31, 2012 will be considered in a first evaluation, but later applications are also welcome to fill available positions. Selected candidates will be appointed for a personal interview and/or test assignments. Further questions should be directed to Prof. Albert Díaz Guilera (firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. +34-4021167).
EUROPEAN PROJECT LASAGNE (multi-LAyer SpAtiotemporal Generalized NEtworks)
The successful candidate will join the PhysComp2 node of the project LASAGNE, founded by the European Commission (http://complex.ffn.ub.es/physcomp/index.php), which aims to develop theoretical foundations of multilayer spatio-temporal generalized networks and to validate them on real world applications. The successful candidate must be able to work independently although she/he is also expected to work in close collaboration with the LASAGNE-UB team, Prof. Albert Díaz-Guilera, Dr. M. Ángeles Serrano, and Dr. Marián Boguñá.
EUROPEAN PROJECT MULTIPLEX (Foundational Research on MULTIlevel complex networks and systems). The successful candidate will join the Barcelona node of the project MUTIPLEX, founded by the European Commission, which aims to develop theoretical and computational methods to handle co-evolutionary dynamics on and of multiplex networks. The successful candidate must be able to work independently although she/he is also expected to work in close collaboration with the MULTIPLEX-UB/UPC team, Prof. Albert Díaz-Guilera, Dr. M. Ángeles Serrano, and Dr. Marián Boguñá and Dr. RomualdoPastor-Satorras.
