Hi everybody,

Oxford is hiring two postdocs in "complex networks".

The information is below and is also available at the following website:

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.

Kind Regards


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 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
possible thereafter.

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.
