[DMANET] Postdoctoral Positions at U. de Chile

Two postdoctoral positions are available at the Department of
Industrial Engineering of Universidad de Chile (Santiago) starting in
April 2016, or by mutual agreement at any date thereafter. The
positions emerge as a joint venture between the Institute for Market
Imperfections and Public Policy <>, led by professor
Juan Escobar <>, and the Millennium
Nucleus Information and Coordination in Networks
<>, led by professor Jose Correa

The selected candidates will devote fully to research, spending a
significant fraction of their time working on a large scale and high
impact project related to matching markets and market design. The
appointment will be for a period of 12 months, renewable by mutual
agreement, with a gross monthly salary of 1.700.000 CLP. Shorter
periods may also be considered. Travel support is available.

Applicants must hold a recent (or be close to completion) PhD in Computer
Science, Economics, Operations Research or related fields and should have
research expertise in game theory. Knowledge and background on
matching theory is a plus though not a requirement. Applications
including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research plan (1
page), and names of references with their e-mail addresses, should be
sent electronically to Jose Correa or Juan Escobar. To ensure full
consideration the application should be sent before the deadline of
January 15th, 2016. Late applications will be considered on a case by
case basis.
