The Department of Biomedical Engineering and Computational Science of Aalto University, Finland, has one opening for a postdoctoral research associate in complex networks. We have one opening for a postdoctoral research associate, who is expected to work on complex networks, and particularly on the problem of detecting clusters in multilevel graphs. The position is supported by Multiplex, grant number 317532 of the European Commission. The starting date of the position is November the 1st, 2012, but a later start might be negotiated, if necessary.
We are pleased to inform you about the IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca call for applications for Ph.D. positions. Candidates can apply if they obtain their degree NO LATER than December 31, 2012. DEADLINE: September 26, 2012. Check our website for upcoming calls for Assistant Professor and Post-Doctoral Fellow.
The Swarm Lab (http://www.theswarmlab.com) at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (Newark, USA) is seeking a post-‐doctoral researcher to work on questions related to collective decision-‐making and collective information processing in gregarious and social animals. This is a 2 year position starting January 1st, 2013.
Starting from the academic year 2012-2013, the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC) organises an one-year Master's programme (60 ETCS) in the field of Complex Systems.
We have openings for several PhD students, who are expected to work on problems of complex systems at the interface between biology, physics, computer and social sciences. We are looking for strongly motivated people with good computing and English communication skills. They should have a background in physics, applied mathematics or computer science. Some knowledge of statistical physics, experience in data analysis and computer simulations would be of advantage.
RECENS is a research center led by Károly Takács, promoting high quality research in social network analysis. RECENS is part of Centre for Social Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences and is located in Budapest, Hungary in the beautiful Buda castle. We are seeking a candidate who will participate in our research project “Competition and Negative Networks: The Origin, Dynamics, and Harmful Consequences of Negative Relations”.
Starting in September, two PhD student positions at the interface of Statistical Physics and Computational Systems Biology are available in a joint project with Stefan Bornholdt. The project is about modeling the network interface between gene regulation and metabolism. To be assured of full consideration, applications must arrive by July 31, 2012.
A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Cristina Marchetti at Syracuse University starting Fall 2012. The candidate will have the opportunity to carry out theoretical and computational research on nonequilibrium properties of soft and active materials, including pattern formation in bacterial suspensions, cell mechanics and collective cell migration, dynamics of artificial swimmers and vibrated granular matter.
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/jobs/index.php UCL Department / Division Department of Computer Science The UCL Department of Computer Science is renowned for its breadth and variety of research and for its radical and innovative approach to teaching. We are seeking a talented individual to strengthen the research and teaching capacity in the computational finance area. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a portfolio of internationally excellent research, to contribute towards supervising PhD students on the Doctoral Training Centre in Financial Computing and ideally towards teaching a new MSc in Risk Management and other programmes as required. With this post, we are seeking to complement the existing research of the team. We will accept applications across the broad range of financial computing and computational finance, but would particularly encourage those interested in risk modelling, portfolio optimization, algorithmic trading and econophysics. We will consider requests to work part-time and we may make more than one appointment.
