CCNR tenure-track position

Assistant Professorship in Network Science

The Center of Complex Network Research (CCNR), together with the
Departments of Physics and Computer Science invites applications for
assistant professor tenure-track position in Network Science. We are
particularly interested in outstanding candidates with interest in
fundamental aspects of network formation and evolution, and their
applications to various real world problems, from biological to social and
communication networks. Applicants interested in data mining in networks
will also be considered. The main appointment will likely be in the
Department of Physics, but for qualified candidates with background in
other areas, like computer science or biology, appointments with the
appropriate departments will also be explored.

Required qualifications include: an earned Ph.D. degree in physics,
computer science, or a closely related field; a strong record of research
in network science that can support the teaching  mission of the
appropriate department and the research missions of the Center; excellent
communication skills and an interest working with students and
collaborating with the community and industry. For more information about
ongoing network related research at CCNR visit

Review of applications will begin November 25, 2008, and will be continued
until the position is filled. A letter of application that addresses the
qualifications, teaching and research statements, vitae,  and three
