Two postdoctoral
positions are opened in the Group of Complex Systems and
Random Networks at the Physics department of the University
of Aveiro, Portugal.
Research interests are in the field of the statistical
physics of complex networks and its applications (cellular
networks, the Web and the Internet, neural networks, etc.)
There are three options:
(1) A candidate may be a theoretical physicist with a good
record in the field of statistical physics or condensed
matter theory.
(2) A candidate may be a specialist in numerical
calculations and simulations.
(3) A candidate may be a person with experience of work with
cellular network databases and in bioinformatics.
The candidates should have a good command of English.
The applicants should have a recent (less than five years)
Ph.D. degree [or should prove that the Ph.D. degree will be
received in 2010 or maybe even in January/February 2011].
The anticipated starting date is September  December 2010
(negotiable).
These are oneyear positions with possible prolongation up
to 3 years.
To apply, please send me (Sergey Dorogovtsev) the following
set of nondoc files (txt, ps, pdf):
