PhD programme in Sociology and Social Research (6 scholarships)
The programme provides state-of-the-art research training and teaches advanced professional skills in sociology and social research. Besides providing a solid foundation in the disciplines, including a broad range of quantitative and qualitative methods, the Programme places strong emphasis on theoretically driven empirical sociology. The PhD Programme in Sociology and Social Research is open to proposals on all kinds of topics related to Sociological research. Particular attention will be paid to proposals fitting in the following research areas highlighted in the description of the PhD programme, among them:
· social inequality studies and stratification research (class, education, cohort, gender);

PhD programme in Economics and Management (10 scholarships)
The programme focuses on the fields of decision sciences, organization, human and natural resource management with special attention to methodologies used in a behavioural approach to economic studies.

Particular emphasis will be given to research proposals on the following subjects:
• Causal inference with Machine learning
• Does scarcity matter in consumer decision making?
• Effects of temporal frames on decisions under risk
• Financial Networks: estimation and reconstruction approaches to prevent systemic crises
• Industrial dynamics and firms' heterogeneity
• Machine Learning Tools for Financial Portfolio Selection
