  • PhD in Physics, Economics, Mathematics (including Financial or Applied Math), Mathematical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Statistics, or related disciplines
  • A strong record in research productivity
  • Fluency in written and oral English
  • Excellent written and oral presentation skills

While not mandatory, the following qualifications are strongly desired:

  • Previous experience with data science projects, preferably in economics, finance, and social sciences
  • Experience in working with complex networks theory
