**Deadline:** 16 jun 2020

The Mathematics Department of the University of Padova has an opening for 14 PhD positions. The deadline is on June 16th 2020 at 1 p.m.

One PhD position will be assigned for a specific project: Dynamics and control of networked structures with PDEs.

The successfull candidate is expected to conduct research under the guidance of the professors listed below on:

- study and control of relevant agent-based models of networks, like the the limit of the celebrated Cucker-Smale model, under an additional constraint of random lack of interaction.

- analysis and control of many particle (micro-macro) limits of discrete (ODE-based) models of traffic flow on a network.

PhD advisors:

Fabio Ancona (ancona@math.unipd.it), Francesco Rossi (francesco.rossi@math.unipd.it)

Research Group: The recruited fellow will spend 3 to 6 months in one (or two) of the international institutions listed below and he will benefit of meetings and scientific networking activities in which the advisors are involved
