Societies become more and more dependent on their ability of handling, interpreting, and making sense of complex systems. Understanding complex systems on a quantitative and predictive basis rests on the ability to combine complex systems science (mathematical concepts and methodology) with big and comprehensive datasets. The number of experts in this new scientific field is limited which poses a bottleneck to understand and eventually manage complex systems. The objective of the hub is to host, educate, and inspire complex systems scientists who are dedicated to collect, handle, aggregate, and make sense of big data in ways that are directly valuable for science and society. Focus areas include smart cities, innovation dynamics, medical, social, ecological, and economic systems. CSH is a joint initiative of AIT, IIASA, Medical University of Vienna, TU Graz, TU Wien, and Vienna University of Economics and Business.
The WU's Institute for Information Business is currently inviting applications for a full-time non-tenure track Assistant Professor (post-doc) in the area of Complexity Science and the Semantic Web. The position is a collaboration between the WU Data Management Group and the Complexity Science Hub Vienna.
