   I am playing with networks

Our world has a network construction. Networks are everywhere: cellular networks, the Internet, the Web, social and economics networks. All these networks are extremely compact, infinite-dimensional objects with complex architectures. The questions are:
  • How are the networks organized?
  • How do these complex architectures emerge? How do networks evolve?
  • What is special about processes taking place on the complex networks?
  • How to design an optimal network?

Two Postdoctoral Positions at the Physics department of the University of Aveiro: deadline - 30 April 2013.
Statistical physics of complex multiplex networks.

The Group of Complex Systems and Random Networks (GNET) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in the field of multiplex networks to develop analytic and computational tools for the study of the structural properties and dynamics of multiplex and interdependent networks.
Candidates should send a curriculum vitae, a brief letter of introduction, the list of publications, and (upon request) arrange reference letters.
We are particularly interested in candidates with strong background in theoretical studies.
The appointment is for two years with possible renewal.
Qualifications: PhD in physics, applied mathematics or related discipline.
Informal inquiries should be directed to: Prof. José Fernando Mendes [jfmendes(at)ua.pt] or Dr. Sergey Dorogovtsev [sdorogov(at)ua.pt] .
The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 30 April 2013.
