The Network Systems Science & Advanced Computing (NSSAC) Division of the Biocomplexity Institute & Initiative at the University of Virginia is seeking postdoctoral associates for multiple positions in machine learning, data analytics, and high-performance computing. The Biocomplexity Institute performs world-class informatics research in life sciences, social sciences, and human health by integrating theory, modeling and simulation with computational and experimental science in a transdisciplinary, team science research environment. The NSSAC Division uses information science to create solutions for complex societal problems. Our simulation systems are critical to the success of detecting new threats, natural and man-made, and planning strategic responses. Application areas include computational epidemiology, computational biology, computational social science, and more.
This position provides the opportunity to work with a large team of researchers working on a diverse range of projects ranging from genomic analysis to large-scale simulations of social systems. The postdoctoral researcher will work on developing novel machine learning, data analytics, and HPC methods and will contribute to multiple projects funded through DARPA, NSF, NIH, NASA, IARPA, and others.
In addition, the candidate must be motivated, enthusiastic, self-driven and have demonstrated the ability to work in a highly collaborative team science environment.

Review of applications will begin on March 7, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
This is a restricted position based upon the continued availability of funding.
The position will be based in Charlottesville, VA, USA. Charlottesville is home to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and the University of Virginia, and is nestled in a valley surrounded by the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. It has the best of both worlds: a college town vibe and energy juxtaposed to a chic, cosmopolitan atmosphere given the numerous restaurants, rooftop bars, breweries and wineries, boutique stores, theaters, and entertainment venues you’ll find on the pedestrian Downtown Mall and surrounding area. Charlottesville also has its fair share of cultural events and festivals, but if you ever need a big city boost, hop on Amtrak to Washington, D.C. or New York for a weekend getaway. Guaranteed, you always will be glad to come back.
