IFISC announces two postdoctoral positions on emergent social, technical and ecological complex systems

March 28, 2017

Two postdoctoral positions are available at IFISC. Candidates are expected to work within the framework of the project Emergent Social, Technical and Ecological Complex Systems, ESoTECoS, which addresses the following topics:

  1. Social changes and innovation processes with social interaction at multiple levels
  2. Sociotechnical systems
  3. Emergent behavior with social characteristics in ecosystems

We are looking for a strongly motivated person with skills in mathematical modeling, computing, data collection and analysis. The candidate should have a PhD (or expect to have one for the starting date) in physics, applied mathematics, computer science or any close related discipline such as engineering.

Selected candidates will join IFISC working in collaboration with at least two ESoTECoS senior researchers: P. Colet, D. Gomila, E. Hernández-García, M. Matías, J.J. Ramasco, M. San Miguel, T. Sintes and R. Toral. IFISC´s working environment is a complex system in itself seeking coherence and integration from diversity, interaction, scientific dialog, transversal structures, bridge building and selforganization.

Applications should be received before April 30, 2017. The starting date would be September 2017 and the duration of the contract will be of at least one year, subject to negotiation.

Applications should be submitted via email and should include a motivation paragaraph, a CV, and the name address and e-mail of at least two academic referees which can eventually be ask to send a reference letter for the candidate.

Inquiries regarding the position should be addressed to Prof. Pere Colet.
