Open Positions

March 30, 2022:
We have an open position for an intern or research assistant to support us in conducting online surveys about COVID-19, and evaluating them. The project start is as soon as possible. For details, we refer to our Call for a research assistant.

March 15, 2022:
We have open PhD and PostDoc positions. The aim of the project is to investigate the interplay between pandemics and infodemics.

Relevant publications and methodological approaches are:
Dönges et al., Front. Phyisics, 2022 (Pandemics-Information interaction)
Dehning et al., Science, 2020 (Bayesian inference)
Contreras et al., Nature Communications, 2022 (Compartmental Modelling)

We are always welcoming applications from smart and enthusiastic researchers at all levels (Bachelors and Masters thesis, PhD, PostDoc). We are actively working in the fields of plasticity in neural networks, both conceptual using information theory as well as on the level of synaptic implementation, on cognition of interaction, including game theory,  and on spreading dynamics and self-organization on social and on neural networks.

If you are interested, please send your application, including CV, transcripts of records, letter of motivation and names of referees.
