We are looking for a motivated excellent postdoc candidate in the field of random graphs and network science under supervision of Nelly Litvak. The project aims to mathematically predict performance and outcomes of algorithms for inference and control of real-life complex networks, such as social networks, mobility networks, and the World Wide Web. The analysis will mainly rely on recent methodological developments in the theory of random graphs. The algorithms of interest include, but are not limited, to clustering and community detection, ranking, epidemic containment, and graph embedding. While there is a lot of research on design, implementation and applications of such algorithms on real-world data, the problem of their rigorous mathematical analysis is much less addressed. Such rigorous analysis will shed light on applicability of the algorithms, and ensure the correct interpretation of their outcomes. The candidate will have significant freedom in defining their own specific research questions and methods.
