A developer position in Data Science

The Computational Human Behavior Flagship is FBK’s initiative devoted to developing quantitative approaches to support policy and decision-making processes with high societal impact, while accounting for the intervening social, cognitive and behavioral factors.


As part of the Flagship, the Complex Multilayer Networks (CoMuNe) Research Unit develops mathematical models and computational tools to account for the high level of complexity of networked systems.
