Three postdoc positions in complex networks and systems

communitiesThe Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research (, jointly with the Indiana University Network Science Institute (, 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.

Minimum Qualifications: The ideal candidates will have a PhD in computing, physical sciences, or applied math; a strong background in analysis and modeling of complex systems and networks; and solid programming skills necessary to handle big data and develop large scale simulations.

More Information and Online Applcation: Interested applicants should upload a letter of interest, CV, and contact information for three professional references using these links: (Fortunato) and (Radicchi).
