Dear Socnet,

There are a few days left to submit an application for a PhD scholarship at the IMT School 
for Advanced Studies Lucca (deadline August 9th at 3pm CEST). The Program that is most 
relevant for those reading this email is the “Systems Science” Program, which is home to 
the "Economics, Networks and Business Analytics" Track. This curriculum provides 
participants with a solid knowledge on modern analytical methods in economics and 
management. With its multidisciplinary approach, the curriculum is unique in its deployment 
of a strong integration of concepts, analytical foundations, and practical expertise, to 
educate the new generation of economists, scientists and practitioners with distinctive 
capabilities in analyzing, interpreting, and managing complex socio-economic systems. 
Graduates will be trained to become researchers and decision makers in academia, policy 
and industry by integrating knowledge at the boundary of Economics, Statistical Physics, 
Computer and Social Sciences with the unifying language of Mathematics and Statistics.

All admitted students receive a monthly scholarship for all three years of the program 
(appx. €1100/month), free room and board in IMT's beautiful campus in the heart of Lucca 
(Tuscany), and additional research funds in accordance with their advisor. Students do not 
pay tuition nor do they have any teaching responsibilities. 

It is a truly wonderful opportunity for students wishing to pursue a PhD in economics, 
network science, analytics and related fields. Applications must be submitted by the 
deadline of August 9th 3pm CEST via the online form. Although we are very close to the 
deadline, the application form is simple and can be completed quickly provided that 
candidates have scans of their undergraduate certificates (diploma and transcript) and an 
updated CV. Candidates are also asked to provide a brief research statement and the name 
of two referees. 

For more information, and the online application form, please see: 

Feel free to forward this email to whom you believe might be interested.

Kind regards,
Sara Olson
