Job description: 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 one-year positions with possible prolongation up to 3 years.

To apply, please send me (Sergey Dorogovtsev) the following set of non-doc files (txt, ps, pdf):
