Subject: Senior Research Fellows in Complex Networks - two posts
Dear Member of the Oxford Complexity Mailing List
I am circulating the details (see below) for Senior Research Fellow posts in
Complexity Science that we are currently seeking to fill.
Please bring them to the attention of anyone suitable who you think may be
The posts are founded through two new research projects: "SATURN - Self
organising Adaptive Technology Underlying Resilient Networks" and
"ICTeCollective - Harnessing ICT-enabled Collective Social Behaviour".
I have attached PDF files with the full further particulars for the posts. The
closing date is 12:00 noon (GMT) December 2nd 2009.
Senior Research Fellows in Complex
Networks (two posts)
£36,532 - £43,622 p.a. with discretionary range to £47,666
CABDyN Complexity Centre, Saïd Business School
We are seeking to recruit two Senior Research Fellows in Complex Networks to be
based at the CABDyN Complexity Centre at the University of Oxford.
Candidates will be expected to have a PhD in an appropriate discipline (e.g.
physical, mathematical, engineering or computer sciences) with postdoctoral
training in complex systems and networks, with a track record of serious
interdisciplinary collaboration and engagement. Further information on CABDyN
and the full further particulars for the post are available at
http://sbs-xnet.sbs.ox.ac.uk/complexity/ The advertised posts are funded
through two new research projects.
The SATURN (Self-organising Adaptive Technology Underlying Resilient Networks)
project is co-funded by the UK EPSRC and Technology Strategy
Board, and involves collaboration with both academic and industrial partners.
The focus of this project is on large-scale engineered networks, with a view
to developing novel metrics to characterise network resilience, transport and
dynamics. CABDyN's contribution to the project will involve the development
of new methods to analyse and model such systems, in close collaboration with
engineers based at the industrial project partners. Experience of working
with large-scale engineered systems is therefore essential. The SATURN post is
funded for two years, ideally commencing 1 February 2010, or as soon as
The ICTeCollective Project (Harnessing ICT-enabled Collective Social Behaviour)
is funded by the European Commission, and will require the analysis
and modelling of large-scale empirical datasets of technologically mediated
social interactions. It will include the application of techniques such as
network analysis to online and other ICT environments, and will involve the
development of agent-based or stochastic models for dynamic processes on
networks, such as the spread of online innovations. The ICTeCollective post is
funded for two and a half years, ideally commencing 1 April 2010, or as soon
as possible thereafter. To apply send a detailed covering letter indicating how
you fulfil the requirements of the post together with a detailed curriculum
vitae and the names and
complete contact details (including email addresses if possible) of two
to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or to the HR
Department at the Saïd Business School, Egrove Park, Kennington, Oxford OX1
5NY. The closing date is 12:00noon (GMT)
on Wednesday 2 December 2009. It is expected that interviews will be held in
the week commencing 4 January 2010.
