Part time position as developer at the NetworkPages

Part time position as developer at the NetworkPages.


Are you interested in website development and design, in programming and mathematics or computer science? The NetworkPages, the science communication platform of the research program NETWORKS, is seeking for a motivated student to join our team and help us with the further development of the website.


NETWORKS is a 10-year programme funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science through the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.


NETWORKS is hosted by four research institutions:


• University of Amsterdam (UvA),
• Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e),
• Leiden University (UL),
• Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI).


The programme started in the summer of 2014 and covers a broad range of topics dealing with stochastic and algorithmic aspects of networks. The aim of the programme is to address the pressing challenges posed by large-scale
networks with the help of stochastics and algorithmics. The focus is on modelling, understanding, controlling and optimizing networks that are highly complex and volatile.


The NetworkPages (www.networkpages.nl) is an online platform aiming at communicating recent advances in network science and algorithmics to a broad audience. On the NetworkPages we publish high quality articles which are often accompanied by visualisations or animations to make the theory more accessible and understandable.


What are you going to do?


In this position, you will be part of the NetworkPages team and you will be
responsible for:
• The technical support of the website (WordPress, updates, theme design,
plugins).
• The development of animations/simulations of network science related
topics (see for an example the visualization in
http://www.networkpages.nl/finding-the-shortest-route-to-your-holiday-
destination-dijkstras-algorithm/).

What do we require?


• Knowledge of website design, WordPress, HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
• Some affiliation with mathematics and computer science, in particular simulations and algorithms.


Our offer


A temporary contract for twelve months for eight hours per week (with an initial three month appointment followed by an evaluation and possibly an extension). Where necessary, help with specific programming skills will be provided. As a member of the NetworkPages team you are responsible for the development of animations. For this, you will be in close contact with researchers and their state of the art mathematical and computer science research.
