I am constantly looking for motivated and independent students to develop a Master project, PhD thesis or Post-doc project under my supervision or in co-supervision.

I have limited funding at the moment but I am open to host and mentor strong candidates on individual grant applications. The Flemish Research Foundation (FWO) is the main source of funding in this region of Belgium. Ghent University also provides research funding in a competitive basis. Other funding opportunities may be available depending on profile and research interests, plan well in advance and feel free to contact me to discuss possibilities.

I have a fully-funded open PhD position based at UGent in complex systems and network science. Expected start is early 2020.

I work in interdisciplinary topics and with collaborators from multiple disciplines. I thus welcome students from diverse backgrounds such as physics, economics, computer sciences, applied math, engineering, ecology, medical sciences, etc...

Our local team includes Prof Koen Schoors (banking), Prof Jan Ryckebusch (statistical physics), and a couple of students and senior researchers. We also frequently host national and international guests, and are involved in the organisation of scientific meetings and summer schools.

Furthermore, Ghent University is located in the beautiful city of Ghent, full of history, canals, and delicious food.

Please, contact me to discuss this further!
