Our research, at the edge of statistical physics, applied mathematics and computer science, relies on theoretical and computational network science to cover a wide spectrum of interests, with applications to social and socio-technical systems, computational epidemiology, smart urban systems, systems biology, systems neuroscience, systems medicine.

Applications from

On a rolling basis I accept motivated students for internship/thesis projects

- Statistical physics of complex networks
- Geometry of complex networks
- Information theory of complex networks
- Nonlinear dynamical systems, from reconstruction to analysis
- Systems biology and systems medicine (human brain, connectomics, protein-protein interactions, ...)
- Human mobility and dynamics
- Population dynamics (evolutionary, epidemic spreading, ...)
- Computational social science of exceptional events

Applications are open for up to three fully-funded 3-years positions (about 35,000 € gross per year) to work on a novel and visionary project to model the interdependency between climate change and man-made network infrastructures at national and global scales. The ultimate goal is to devise optimal mitigation and adaptation strategies. The positions are funded by the Italian Ministry for University and Research's prestigious FIS program, the “Italian ERC”.

The ideal candidate has a research record in statistical physics and is familiar with computational modeling and simulations. Experience with network science, models of network dynamics, statistical field theory and machine learning and/or optimization procedures will be considered a significant advantage. In the case of assistant professorhips, support for teaching is mandatory (up to 48h/year), while the senior postdoctoral position come with no teaching duties. The selected candidates will join our young and dynamic research team, the Complex Multilayer Networks Lab.

Interested candidates should tempestively contact me for further details.

Applications are open for two fully-funded scholarships (3 years) to work on a novel and visionary project to model the interdependency between climate change and man-made network infrastructures at national and global scales. The ultimate goal is to devise optimal mitigation and adaptation strategies. The positions are funded by the Italian Ministry for University and Research's prestigious FIS program, the “Italian ERC”.

The ideal candidate wants to pursue a research activity in statistical physics, developing modeling and computational skills. Experience with network science, models of network dynamics, statistical field theory and machine learning and/or optimization procedures will be considered a significant advantage. The selected candidate will join our young and dynamic research team, the Complex Multilayer Networks Lab, while being part of the prestigious Padua Doctoral Programme in Physics (see Details).

Interested candidates should tempestively contact me for further details.

A postdoctoral fellowship (3 years), funded by the Human Frontier Science Program. The research topic is multilayer network modeling to answer this question:

The ideal candidate has a PhD in Physics or similar discipline, experience with complex networks, has experience with theoretical and computational modeling. Experience with ecological models (eg, generalized Lotka-Volterra, replicator-mutator) and/or multilayer network modeling is an important plus.

The candidate will have the opportunity to travel abroad and be part of a young research team and international research consortium. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience of the candidate.

Fully funded scholarships (3 years) are provided, every year, within the Doctoral Programme in Physics (see Details). The lab works within the research area of Statistical Physics of Complex and Biological Systems and is interested in several aspect of network science:

- Statistical physics of information flow dynamics [See a paper]
- Geometry induced by network processes [See a paper]
- Structure, dynamics and function of multilayer networks [See a paper]
