3 postdoctoral fellowships at the School of Advanced Studies (University of Naples)
3 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN MODELING AND ENGINEERING RISK AND COMPLEXITY (MERC) AVAILABLE AT THE SSM-SCHOOL FOR ADVANCED STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NAPLES (Call no. MERC_021_01)
The call for applications for three postdoctoral fellowships in Modeling and Engineering Risk and Complexity iat the SSM-School for Advanced Studies of the University of Naples is now available at:
The research programme will focus on the development of new methodological approaches for the study, management and control of complex systems, the design and engineering of resilient systems and the analysis and management of risks (natural, anthropogenic, industrial and na-tech) and cascading effects. The programme focuses on the integrated description and management of phenomena affecting complex systems and the risks to which they are exposed, in different application domains, through the use of methods for mathematical, stochastic, computational and data-driven modelling.
The programme should be characterised by a strongly multi- and inter-disciplinary approach, based on the theory of dynamical systems and control, the study of complex systems, infrastructures and networks, the theory of reliability for the modelling of uncertainty, the analysis and management of risks deriving from natural and anthropic phenomena on complex and interdependent systems and the study of their emerging properties and domino and cascade effects.
The candidate's activity should lie in at least one of the following three multidisciplinary research areas
(i) modelling, analysis and control of non-linear, uncertain, complex and multi-agent systems
(ii) stochastic modelling and reliability theory
(iii) Modelling and analysis of natural, Na-Tech, man-made and industrial hazards.
The winners will carry out their research at the Scuola Superiore Meridionale of the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II in close collaboration with the research groups already involved in the activities of the PhD students active there. They will also be required to engage in the teaching and tutoring activities of the School, by either giving courses at PhD level or undergraduate level for the students of the School.
Each fellowship is 1 year long (renewable up to 3 years) with a yearly gross salary of EUR 35,000.
Deadline for applications: 31st July 2021 at 2pm CET.
