He/she will participate in team work on broad research projects, involving the combined use of numerical, mathematical and statistical tools for the analysis of dynamical systems and stochastic processes applied to Economics.
For the second position, the Academic Recruitment Field is "Management", SC 13/B2, and the Academic Discipline "Management", SSD SECS-P/08. This position will be based in the Institute of Management of the School. Consistent with EMbeDS focus on social and environmental sustainability, the successful candidate will conduct research on Big Data-enabled decisions in healthcare assistance pathways, using both administrative data and surveys derived from users’ experience and outcome. He/she will participate in team work on broad research projects, involving the combined use of numerical, mathematical and statistical tools for the analysis of the complex healthcare system, leveraging the availability of Big Data of different nature and from different sources.
Research by the successful candidates is expected to be high profile and meet international standards. Teaching at the Undergraduate, Masters and Doctoral levels at the School and its federated institutions (IUSS in Pavia, SNS in Pisa) is also expected.
