Postdoc position (position DR1159) within the EU H2020 Project ADAPT  
(Advanced Prediction Models for flexible trajectory based operations)
Title: *Characterization    of    backbones    of complex    networks    
in    socio-economic    and socio-technical    systems *
*Abstract: *
The     project     plans     to     study     and     analyze 
complex     networks     in     socio-economic     and 
socio-technical     systems.     In
particular     we     will     use     the     methodology of     
the     statistically     validated     networks     to identify     
the     backbone     of     the
network    linking    pairs    of    elements    and    small groups    
of    elements    (clusters)    that    are over-expressed    with    
respect    to    a
null    hypothesis    of    statistical    nature    that takes    
into    account    the    heterogeneity    of    the complex    
system    considered.
We     will     also     devote     special     care     in 
highlighting     the     avoided     interactions     between nodes.     
Our     approach     will
produce    statistically    validated    signed    networks. These    
signed    networks    will    be    investigated    by using    the    
theory    of
structural    balance.    The    project    requires pre-processing,    
analysis    and    interpretation    of large    amounts    of    
data    that
describe    the    systems    of    interest.    The    analysis will    
be    carried    out    using    concepts    and methodologies    of    
the    theory    of
complex    networks.
