The Golub Capital Social Impact Lab has an opening for a 2 year position as a post-doctoral fellow, working Professor Susan Athey and other faculty affiliates of the lab. The position involves working on a set of projects revolving around educational technology (one position) and around financial services and financial inclusion (one position) and serving as project manager and collaborator on research projects, as a coauthor on some projects and as an assisting researcher on others. It also requires interfacing with industry partners and supervising research assistants at various levels of seniority.

The ideal candidate is either preparing for an industry position, for example in a technology company, or an academic position in a field closely aligned with the lab, for which collaboration on the lab’s projects would serve as strong preparation. This position does not incorporate independent research by the fellow outside the scope of the lab; any independent research would be conducted outside of regular work hours and should be managed so as to not present a conflict of commitment to the lab.  

 

Depending on the fellow’s skills and interests, the fellowship will create the opportunity to: create novel experimental designs, including adaptive and dynamic treatment regimes, bandits, and contextual bandits; run the experiments in collaboration with technology firms or on tech firm platforms; use and develop cutting edge methodology for working with large data sets, using university infrastructure or the infrastructure of tech firms; including tools of machine learning and causal inference; develop coding expertise for publicly released software; and/or develop expertise in managing large-scale empirical projects with large code bases written by teams.

Call for Expression of Interest for a Senior Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in Economic Policy (SECS P02) to work on topics related to Regional studies

The University of Trento invites expressions of interest in view of a direct call to scholars working permanently abroad for a position of Senior Assistant Professor (tenure-track).
We seek candidates with significant accomplishments in interdisciplinary research whose main field falls within empirical analysis and policy of regional economics and economic geography.

Experience in economics and econometrics as applied to local development and/or interdisciplinary research projects is a plus. Experience in teaching in English is desirable but not mandatory. Knowledge of Italian is not a requirement. The University of Trento particularly welcomes applications from women candidates

Research

The University of Trento has been ranked in top positions by national rankings, and it is well positioned in international ones. This result is due, in particular, to the University’s success in research and to its ability to look towards Europe and the world.
In the QS World University Rankings 2020, the University of Trento continued to improve its position. Between 2017 and now, it climbed 52 places, reaching the 389th. Of the best Italian universities included in the ranking, Trento is ninth. The indicator that provided most points to the University is the one evaluating research outputs. Its visibility and quality of research, in terms of faculty citations, increased by 20% compared to 2019.
The Research Quality Assessment (VQR) conducted by Italian universities in the 2011-2014 term, released by ANVUR (“Italian Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research”) at the end of December 2016, confirmed the University of Trento in top position among State universities, and sixth in the general ranking which also included institutions of higher learning and research institutes like Sant’Anna or the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa.
Additional information on the research activities at DEM can be found here.

Description of duties:

We aim to support a highly promising scholar with a background in a computational discipline, such as economics, computational social science, or computer science, with experience and interest in the phenomenon of human normativity: the practice of classifying actions or states as acceptable or not and coordinating enforcement schemes to channel behavior according to that classification. The scholar's research agenda should address a topic that engages with the phenomenon of normativity as a system-level feature of human groups and focus on questions such as what attributes contribute to the maintenance of stability and adaptability and in support of cooperation and coordination to generate group value. The proposed research is expected to yield both theoretical and empirical publications.

This role is expected to contribute to a research program headed by Dr. Hadfield at the Schwartz Reisman Institute focused on building computational models of norm emergence and dynamics, rooted ultimately as closely as possible in a rational agent and equilibrium approach to decisions about third-party norm enforcement and compliance. This approach builds on a conceptual framework for normative social orders developed in Hadfield and Weingast (2012, 2014), Hadfield-Menell, Andrus and Hadfield (2019) and Koster, Hadfield-Menell, Hadfield and Leibo (2019). Modeling techniques could include evolutionary game theory, multiagent models using POMDPs, and multiagent reinforcement learning. Key questions explored in this program are: how do groups of agents settle (equilibrate) on normative classification for novel behaviors? What features of norm systems contribute to stability/robustness and adaptability? The Hadfield-Weingast work, for example, argues that conventional “rule of law” features such as generality and openness contribute to securing an equilibrium that relies on third-party unofficial enforcement of shared normative classification; the Hadfield-Menell and Hadfield et al. work looks at the role of “silly” (meaningless) rules in stabilizing a normative social order with important rules. Familiarity with formal modeling of norms and evolutionary approaches to norms (e.g. McElreath, Boyd and Richerson 2003, Boyd, Gintis and Bowles 2010, DeScioli and Kurzban 2012)) as well as behavioral economics is a key asset.

The fellow will be an integral part of the research community at the Schwartz Reisman Institute. The Institute is dedicated to integrative research and human-centred solutions to make sure technology improves life—for everyone. We draw on world-class expertise across universities, government, industry, and community organizations to conduct ground-breaking research and develop innovative solutions to pressing real-world challenges.

Salary: $75,000 per annum.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. (computational discipline, such as economics, computational social science, or computer science) or equivalent terminal degree, normally awarded within the past 5 years.

Application instructions

Applications will be reviewed as they are received. All individuals interested in this position must submit the following documents:

 A current curriculum vitae;

 A research proposal (not to exceed 1,500 words). Please supply an indicative title for the project at the beginning of the proposal;

 A representative manuscript or publication;

 Contact information for three referees, who will be asked to comment specifically on your qualifications for the proposed research project.

Term: 1 year with potential for renewal
