Are there jobs related to Complex Systems?

I've always been interested in complex systems, from network science to the study of emerging properties of multi agent systems. But at the moment I see complex systems more as a research field than a practical thing in the industry.

Do you know if there are jobs related to complex systems?

It's definitely not easy to get into, but if you want to do research type work but get paid for it, some of the big companies have research arms. The one that comes to mind is MSR (Microsoft Research). I believe Google also has an equivalent. The key would be to somehow get an internship there as I suspect going in full time directly would be a lot more difficult, there's a lot less funding for research vs engineering. Another option would be to get your proverbial foot in the door at a company that has a research arm and trying to transfer from within, which is usually a lot easier as you can directly contact hiring managers vs being in a giant pool of applicants. In that case just make sure that the company (again usually the big ones) has the breadth of work to allow you to get in and move laterally once you're there.

Thanks for you comment, I imagined that it wasn't easy, after all it's a particular field Yuri G.

Depending on the definition - Complex systems are everywhere. Technically complex, those with Business complexity etc. For e.g. Complex telecom networks, Convolutional Networks etc. Older IT corporations that have merged over the years may have Complex system architectures. Highly integrated systems (with inter-dependencies) may be complex as well.
And these may be existing or in research. Complex algorithms are used by computer systems involved in Analytics and Machine learning at companies like Facebook, Google, Amazon etc.
Factories/plants that manufacture something also may have complex systems - and they may be electrical/mechanical (i.e. as different from software based).

Hi Yuri,

If you consider artificial intelligence (AI) as a complex system, or perhaps a means of resolving complex systems, then there are many practical applications and job opportunities out there.

When it comes to the best jobs for the future, few industries stand out as much as artificial intelligence. A 2019 report from Gartner shows that enterprise applications for AI have grown 270% in four years, fueling a level of demand that outstrips the current supply of qualified job candidates.

This is great news for professionals seeking machine learning jobs and related careers in artificial intelligence. The number of industries using AI is also expanding to the point where virtually no major enterprise will be untouched by this rapidly unfolding technology.

If you’re interested in AI, here is a good article that describes educational programs and starting a career in AI.

I hope this helps.
