The Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research (CNetS.indiana.edu), jointly with the Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI.iu.edu), has two three open postdoctoral positions, two on the characterization and modeling of complex systems and one to study critical processes in networks of networks. The appointments start in Summer/Fall 2016 for one year and are renewable for one or two additional years, subject to funding and performance. The salary is competitive and benefits are generous.
The postdocs will join a dynamic and interdisciplinary team that includes computer, physical, and cognitive scientists. Two postdocs will work with Prof. Santo Fortunato on various areas of complex systems research, including community detection in networks, computational social science (opinion dynamics, online experiments on social influence) and science of science (citation and collaboration patterns between scientists, impact dynamics). A third postdoc will work with Prof. Filippo Radicchi. Continue reading Three postdoc positions in complex networks and systems→
NaN is a research group exploring the modeling, simulation, and analysis of complex social and information networks, and the human and artificial agents who live in these networks. Broadly speaking our research spans network science, data science, web science, and computational social science. Recently our focus has been on modeling the dynamic processes that occur online (how information networks grow and evolve, how memes go viral, how social media can be manipulated for the spread of misinformation, how attention bursts and other traffic patterns emerge, etc.) and on the design of tools to make the Web and social media ‘better’ (more trustworthy, reliable, intelligent, autonomous, robust, personalized, contextual, scalable, adaptive, and so on). We collaborate with colleagues at the IU Network Science Institute (IUNI), ISI Foundation, Yahoo Research, and many other institutions.
