The Center for Complex Network Research (CCNR) at Northeastern University and Division of Network Medicine, Harvard Medical School, in the group of Professor László Barabási is looking for exceptional candidates to fill the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate. The group currently focuses on systems biology, social networks, as well as fundamental questions in complex systems, at the boundary of control theory, network science and quantum networks. We are seeking candidates in each area.
Performs basic or applied techniques to systems biology, social networks, control theory and dynamical systems. Prepares and writes research papers, presentations, grant proposals, etc. Our research on systems biology focuses on the properties of biological networks, with applications to metabolic modeling, flux balance methods, and human diseases. The research on social networks involves the study and modeling of extensive communication datasets. Primary responsibility is ensuring that the research is complete. The appointment generally does not extend beyond two years.
Must have a Ph.D. or equivalent; be able to undertake substantial full-time research or scholarship; work under the supervision of a senior scholar. Strong analytical background and interest in interdisciplinary research including biophysics, computational biology, statistical mechanics, data mining, statistics, and related areas and experience in modeling and analysis. Experience with network theory is a plus, but not a requirement.
