The PhD student will work within the larger LAB-M project "Live agent based models and the theory of adaptive multi-type and multilayer networks to study economic complexity and financial instability", funded by Ghent University and by the Flemish Fund for Scientific Research (FWO-Vlaanderen). The LAB-M project aims to model interactions of real persons with real incentives in massive multiplayer online games (MMOG) with realistic economic environments to test a wide plethora of economic and political theories and develop new theories rooted in network theory and methodology. The LAB-M world provides natural experiments and collects multi-faceted data on the interaction of people in adaptive multilayer networks. We will develop a new methodological language for social physics, rooted in adaptive multi-type multilayer networks. The PhD students will be based at the Economics and Physics Department of Ghent University (Belgium), and will be part of a research team, coordinated by Prof. Jan Ryckebusch and Prof. Koen Schoors. The PhD student will also be guided by international external advisors.
