The Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory (NDSSL) invites 
applications for postdoctoral associates in the fields of high 
performance computing, data analytics and statistics. NDSSL is part of 
the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech, and is a world-class group 
of interdisciplinary researchers who develop synthetic information 
systems and associated analytical methods for studying large-scale 
complex socio-technical systems. The emphasis is real-time team science 
with direct implications to policy-making, while also contributing to 
the scientific literature in a significant way. Please see for more details on some of NDSSL’s 
research projects.

A successful postdoctoral applicant will:

-Possess a strong academic record during their PhD with publications in 
high impact journals/conferences.

-Exhibit excellent oral and written communication skills.

-Be a strongly motivated, enthusiastic and self-driven individual who 
excels in a highly collaborative environment.

Aptitude for creative problem solving would be encouraged.

During their stay in the group the postdoctoral scholars will be 
expected to work on both theoretical and applied aspects of real-world 
problems arising in a number of areas, including public health, social 
science and systems biology. They are expected to publish high quality 
research in high impact venues, and will have opportunity to collaborate 
in highly multi-disciplinary teams.

We welcome applications in the following areas.

*High Performance Computing*: this includes areas related to the design 
and implementation of network algorithms and agent-based simulations for 
biological and socio-technical systems in current as well as emerging 
models of high performance computing.

*Data and Network Analytics and Statistics*: this includes the areas of 
very large-scale data mining and analysis, statistics, social network 
analysis, database theory, streaming algorithms, machine learning, 
visualization, as well as working with Big Data tools such as Hadoop and 

Applications will be considered immediately until position(s) are 
filled. Please send your CV and a research statement to: Henning
