Title: Data-driven development of new tools for higher-order networks
Supervisor: Alain Barrat (CPT, Marseille)

The PhD will consist in a data-driven development of new approaches and tools to deal with higher order networks (HONs). We will define tools to characterize relevant and central structures in HONs, develop comparison methods between HONs, tools to extract timescales and states in temporal HONs. We will also consider models of dynamical processes involving higher-order structures and study the role of the various structures we have defined in these processes.
We are looking for a PhD candidate with a strong background in statistical physics, computational tools and programming, and an interest in complex networks, from the development of data analysis tool to the study of dynamical processes.
The PhD will include a secondment period under the supervision of Giovanni Petri at CENTAI in Turin, Italy.
