Ph.D. Assistantship University of Groningen, Netherlands

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. position to work on

Interacting stochastic models on complex networks

Complex networks with small-world properties occur in a multitude of real-world communication networks. In this project we shall investigate the nature of interacting systems on such networks and understand their phase-transitions.

The student will be supervised by C. K ulske, A. C. D. van Enter(Groningen) and R. van der Hofstad (Eurandom, Eindhoven). The Ph.D. student will be based in Groningen with longer visits to Eurandom.

The Groningen group working on the probability theory of interacting systems will consist of two sta members, two senior part-time positions and 4 Ph.D. students, and has strong international ties.

The contract is for 4 years and the Ph.D. student will be a full employee of the University of Groningen, with monthly salary according to the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities.
