RWTH Aachen - Computational Network Science

The newly estab­lished Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Net­work Sci­ence group at RWTH Aachen, hea­ded by Michael Schaub, focu­ses on ana­ly­zing com­plex net­works and graph data using a blend of tools from con­trol theory, dyna­mi­cal sys­tems, sto­chastic pro­ces­ses, machine lear­ning and sta­tis­tics. Our rese­arch com­bi­nes ‘bot­tom-up’ dyna­mi­cal models, and ‘top-down’ data-dri­ven approa­ches to under­stand a variety of sys­tems, ran­ging from social to bio­lo­gi­cal net­works.

Sup­por­ted by the NRW return pro­gram (valued at 1.25 Mio Euro), we are offe­ring a PhD posi­tion wit­hin the area of 'lear­ning from data on net­works with uncer­tainty'.
