The University of Trento is accepting applications for a PhD position in the field of “Multilayer Network Analysis.” The peculiarities of this position consist in its further institutional affiliations and in its scope of application.
The position will be affiliated with the Complex Multilayer Networks (CoMuNe) Lab of the Foundation Bruno Kessler, also in Trento, as well as with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin and in relation to the research project “The Sphere. Knowledge System Evolution and the Shared Scientific Identity of Europe.”
The scope of the PhD is to develop models for the analysis of multilayer networks that meet the requirements dictated by the use of datasets extracted from historical sources. Such data are usually described by a particularly high number of attributes and are correlated to each other by means of a very high number of ontologically different relations. Moreover, the models will have to guarantee a correct rendering of the knowledge evolution mechanisms (historical time) as formulated in the frame of the historical research project. The PhD is in math and the candidate has to possess a solid educational background for this purpose.
Application deadline to be announced in June. For more information, please refer to the Call for Applications announcement
