Candidates at a more senior-level will also be considered. The appointment will begin September 1, 2016. This is a University-year appointment. Information about the Center can be found here.
Candidates must have a demonstrated research agenda focusing on complex systems.

Preference will be given to candidates with a track record of working across disciplines.
