The position is linked to the 2023-2027 “Departments of Excellence” Program awarded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research. This funding aims at expanding the research agenda of the Department of Economics, by studying policies and interventions that can improve people’s quality of life and contrast new forms of economic vulnerability. Specifically, the program will investigate interventions that can contrast inequality, poverty, and other forms of economic and social exclusion, arising as a result of - amongst others - demographic changes, market imperfections and limitations to market participations, financial crisis and impoverishment, climate deterioration, etc.

The appointee will take a leading role in the Program, which envisages the recruitment of other more junior positions. The position comes with a generous budget supporting the Program, including dedicated funding to conduct field experiments (about 500K Euro).
