Postdoctoral Fellow - Dynasnet Project

Position:   Researcher
Location:   Budapest
Status:   Full-time
Unit:   Department of Network and Data Science
Application deadline:   Open until filled
Starting date :   September 1, 2020
Application deadline: Review of the applications starts June 30th and continues until the position is filled. 

The Department of Network and Data Science at Central European University invites applications for a Postdoctoral fellow position under the supervision of Profs. Laszlo Barabasi and Marton Posfai to participate in the DYNASNET project, which is a Synergy Grant, funded by the European Research Council (GA number 810115). Conversation between the research communities of network science and graph theory, despite their shared object of study, has been limited. Led by leaders of both disciplines (Laszlo Barabasi, Laszlo Lovasz and Jaroslav Nesetril), the DYNASNET project aims to bridge this gap and cross-pollinate both fields.
The position starts in September 2020 and it is based at the Budapest campus of CEU, but we maintain a close collaboration with the CEU Department of Network and Data Science in Vienna.

We are looking for a motivated individual to join one of the focus areas of the project depending on the candidate's interests and qualifications. Possible areas of research include physical networks, dynamics and control of networks, and applications of graph limits. The ideal candidate has strong analytical skills, a PhD in physics, mathematics, network science, or a related field, and has working experience in network science or complex systems research.

We offer a competitive salary that is commensurate with experience as well as a dynamic and international academic environment. The initial contract is for one year and may be extended by two additional years.


Applicants need to submit:

  • CV
  • Brief statement of research interests
  • Contact information of two references

Please send your complete application package to: including job code in subject line: 2020/038. 

Review of the applications starts June 30th and continues until the position is filled.
