Postdoctoral Fellowships at the
New England Complex Systems Institute

The New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI) is an independent educational and research institution dedicated to advancing the study of complex systems. NECSI was established as a joint effort of faculty of New England academic institutions for the advancement of communication and collaboration outside of institutional and departmental boundaries.

NECSI welcomes applications for postdoctoral positions for research projects on unified approaches relevant to describing and analyzing complex systems. The research may have a focus in a particular discipline, and will be conducted in the context of the NECSI working groups on: information mechanics; time series analysis and prediction; molecular self- organization; mind, brain and behavior; informatics; evolution; the structure of human organizations; social systems; and biomedical complexity.

In addition to general projects, specific projects with anticipated openings include research in: protein folding and aggregation, developmental biology, distributed computing, meteorology, non-equilibrium dynamics, agent based modeling, engineering design, cognitive modeling, corporate anthropology and management/organization science.

NECSI Postdoctoral fellows will receive joint appointments at MIT, Harvard or other local academic institutions.

Candidates should describe their areas of interest and relevant background in a one to two page letter and attach a curriculum vitae and list of publications.
