Postdoctoral Position, Mapping Big Data Systems
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Barcelona to work with Prof. M. Ángeles Serrano and Prof. Marián Boguñá at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and UB Institute of Complex Systems (UBICS). The position is funded by a "Fundación BBVA" grant.
This is a postdoctoral position with a salary of €29,700 per year (before taxes) for one year renewable until june 2020. There will be additional support for conference travels.
The discovery and understanding of the hidden geometry of complex networks have become fundamental problems within Network Science giving place to the field of Network Geometry. The research will focus on mixing of machine learning and statistical techniques for an efficient embedding of very large networks in hidden metric spaces to produce meaningful maps. We will create an online platform to host an atlas of network maps, and where scientists and interested people can produce theirs.
- A PhD in Physics, Computer Science, Computer/Electronic Engineering, or other relevant discipline is expected.
- Expertise in complex networks
- Excellent software development skills
- Excellent communication skills, verbal and written (English)
Informal queries about this position should be sent to email@example.com
Interested applicants are requested to submit
- a Curriculum Vitae including relevant publications and the name and contact details of 2 referees
- a one page cover letter explaining your interest in this specific position
Submissions should be sent by email with subject “MBDS Application” to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviews will be carried out as soon as suitable candidates are identified.
To successful candidate is expected to start in September 2018, or before (if possible).

We present the World Trade Atlas 1870-2013, a collection of annual world trade maps in which distances incorporate the different dimensions that affect international trade, beyond mere geography. The atlas provides us with information regarding the long-term evolution of the international trade system and demonstrates that, in terms of trade, the world is not flat, but hyperbolic. You can check the evolution of world trade in this interactive video tool

The old maxim that it's less about what you know than who you know is an appropriate analogy for how the behaviour of a complex network can be profoundly influenced by the weights of its links. Read more

We show that multiplex systems are not random combinations of single network layers. Instead, they are organized in specific ways dictated by hidden geometric correlations between the layers.

We invite applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (1+1 years) in Network Science-Mapping Complexity at the University of Barcelona (Spain). The successful candidate will be required to join us in the investigation of complex networks embedded in hidden metric spaces to get insights into the connection between the structure and function in biological complex systems.

Online social networks offer a data-driven way to study patterns of human behavior on small and large scales. Researchers have shown that individuals are significantly more likely to enroll in social networks based on the influence of one active friend than the influence of mass-media campaigns.
