The Computer Science Department, Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and the Center for Network Science and Technology (NeST) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) invite exceptional candidates to fill a postdoctoral position in network science and connected vehicle systems. The research will be conducted within the research group directed by Prof. Jianxi Gao and Prof. Sean He with opportunities for collaboration with other excellent faculty at computer science, CEE, physics, and across RPI. The group currently focuses on a number of fundamental projects at the boundary of network dynamics and network structure, control theory, and operations research, including network resilience, network robustness, network control, social networks, infrastructure networks, ecological networks, biological networks, as well as fundamental questions in complex systems. Our priority is to attract technically strong researchers who are also interested in asking bold, new questions related to resilient transportation systems. We welcome applicants with strong background in fields including computer science, transport engineering, statistical physics, applied mathematics, electrical and computer engineering, system engineering, social network analysis, complex systems, or other closely related fields.

Qualifications: The successful postdoc candidate must hold a Ph.D. or expected PhD in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics, Information Science, or closely related fields.

How to apply: Qualified applicants must submit an application via email to Jianxi Gao (Jianxi.gao with subject heading “(your name) - Postdoc Application”, containing: 1) cover letter, describing your interest in and qualifications for this position; 2) curriculum vitae (including publications list); 3) a brief research statement; 4) two or three recommendation letters emailed separately by the writers.
