Post-doc position - Tandon School of Engineering, New York University
Post-doc positions are available in the Dynamical Systems Laboratory (DSL) at the Tandon School of Engineering, New York University in a wide variety of research projects that are signature scopes of our multidisciplinary group. The positions are fully funded with a competitive salary.
We seek for independent, motivated, and creative individuals to conduct fundamental research in the broad area of complex systems. The candidate will be making important contributions to one or multiple reserch projects supported by our several ongoing grants (see http://faculty.poly.edu/~mporfiri/Projects.htm). Depending on the candidate's background and interests, their research could involve both theory and experiments, spanning topics from network science to collective behavior in sociotechnical and engineering systems. For example, ongoing research seeks to address hydrodynamic and social interactions underlying schooling behavior of swimming animals, epidemic processes in networks, and ion transport in porous membranes.
The DSL was established fifteen years ago by Prof. Maurizio Porfiri (Institute Professor at Tandon School of Engineering, with appointments at the Center for Urban Science and Progress, the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, theDepartment of Biomedical Engineering, and the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering). The DSL is home to a highly collaborative, vibrantgroup of young scholars, with complementary expertise across theory, experiments, and computation. The director, Prof. Porfiri, is the author of more than 300 journal publications and the recipient of numerous professional awards (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurizio_Porfiri).
Ideal candidates are expected to have: i) the drive to pursue an excellent career in research upon completion of their post-doc training; i) a Ph.D. in science, mathematics, or engineering, iii) a demonstrated ability to conduct original research, (theoretical, experimental, or computational) as evidenced by a number of high-quality journal and conference publications; iv) outstanding English language oral and written communication skills; v) a strong work ethic with the ability to work independently as well as in a research group; vi) evidence of good project/laboratory management skills; and vii) the ability to strategize the goals of projects as well as design, conduct, and interpret experiments, under the mentorship of the Principal Investigator.
Candidates are encouraged to apply. Applications should include a detailed curriculum vitae, a one-page cover letter, a statement of past research experience, and a list of references. The cover letter should include applicants research interests, and their future plans, both in general and research-wise. Review of applications will begin immediately, and candidates are expected to join as early as January 2021.
