Postdoc Position in Complex Systems

The university of Le Havre, France, is hiring a motivated and talented doctor for a one-year postdoc contract starting October 2014. The annual gross salary is around  €26,000, medical insurance included.


Measures and algorithms for dynamic graphs


Dynamic Graphs, Stochastic Models, Dynamical Models, Complex Systems, Complex Networks

Job description:

Complex Systems are usually modeled with the help of graphs and graphs algorithms. A wide literature already covers various kinds of problems (connectivity, paths, community, etc.)

The hired applicant will investigate the representation of time-constrained complex networks and especially in the way time can be included in graph models. Unfortunately, dynamic graphs do not benefit from a wide range of contributions. In this project we seek metrics and measures for such dynamic graphs and aim at proposing a formal representation of them.

Various scientific techniques may be considered (stochastic models, multi-agents systems, systems of differential equations, etc.) The orientation of the subject will be discussed with the selected candidate.

Fields of applications are also open to discussion since the team is involved in various projects where dynamic graphs are used as a model: transportation networks (road and maritime), telecommunication networks (wireless, mobile, ad hoc, DTN), Life Cycle Assessment.


Applicants must have a doctorate in statistical physics, computer science or applied mathematics. They shall be having a strong motivation for the domain of complex systems and graphs theory. Advanced programming skills are mandatory. Moreover, a significant international work experience is desirable.


Applications should be written as a short project proposal that states the applicant’s motivations in accordance with the aforementioned description. The application should also contain a résumé with a comprehensive timeline of previous work experience, a list of publications, and recommendation letters.   The application should be sent to Yoann Pigné
