Positions

Postdoctoral Positions in Network Dynamics

The group of Prof. Adilson E. Motter at Northwestern University has openings for postdoctoral researchers interested in dynamical aspects of complex network systems.

The main topics of interest include: dynamics of biological, biochemical, and chemical networks; symmetry in network structure and dynamics; power-grid modeling, optimization, and control; synchronization, cascades, and pattern formation; applications of missing information techniques and control theory to complex systems; quantum phenomena in networks. Ideal candidates will be new or recent PhDs with good analytical, computational, and communication skills.

One position will be for a power grid control project funded by DOE. Candidates for this position are expected to have previous research experience in modeling/controlling power systems, particularly those involving renewable energy sources.

Positions are available immediately, and salary can vary with qualifications. Exceptionally qualified applicants may be considered for a research faculty appointment. To apply, candidates should e-mail a CV and a brief research statement to Prof. Motter at motter@northwestern.edu. The application deadline is September 30, 2017 for one position and November 15, 2017 for the others.

Prospective Students interested in graduate work in complex systems, biological physics, or nonlinear dynamics are encouraged to visit the department webpage and look into the Graduate Admissions Information: http://www.physics.northwestern.edu/graduate/

Visiting Students and Postdoctoral Researchers with fellowships are encouraged to apply for positions in the group by e-mailing curriculum vitae and a brief description of the fellowship program and research plans to Prof. Motter.

Northwestern Students with strong computer training and interested in joining the group are encouraged to contact Prof. Motter.
