Description

The University of California, Davis invites applications for a faculty position in network theory, which is an interdisciplinary academic field using graph theory, statistical mechanics, and applied mathematics to elucidate the mathematical foundations underlying the organization and function of networks across a wide range of applied disciplines. The appointment will be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, with opportunity for a more senior level appointment for an exceptional candidate, with an intended start date of Fall 2018. The appointment will reside in the Department of Computer Science or the Department of Physics, with the ideal candidate qualified to hold a joint appointment based in both departments.
UC Davis is home to a thriving Network Science community that spans all of the university's colleges and units. We seek a scholar who is developing mathematical principles of networks and is eager to integrate across theory traditions in the mathematical, physical, biological, and social sciences, and partner with our broad existing base of network practitioners to solve crucial societal problems. There is also a vibrant Complexity Sciences Center and Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics that complement the network sciences activities. This effort is a part of a 3-year initiative to hire 10+ new faculty across multiple departments who focus on advanced computational theory and methods, including clusters of hires in computational neuroscience, network.
