Three one-year post-doc positions at Uninsubria (Varese), Department of Economics

We are looking for 3 junior researchers who are about to finish or has just finished their PhD in Social-Economic Sciences or Quantitative Sciences, to work on three research projects run at the Department of Economics of University of Insubria (Varese) by Prof. Elena Maggi, Prof. Silvana Robone and Prof. Andrea Vezzulli, respectively: 
 

Project Title: Policies for Sustainable commuting to work. A stated preferences’ analysis 

Keywords: transportation, sustainability, environmental policies, health & well-being 

Abstract: Sustainable commuting to work is a key component of reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions since the private car use is still predominant. The research project aims at assessing the acceptability and related effectiveness level of different alternative policies to foster the use of sustainable transportation means, such as bikes, to commute to work, through a stated choice experiment. The collected data will be used to estimate through Multinomial Logit Models the variables determining the adoption of bicycle and/or other sustainable transport means and the total utility deriving from the policy implementation. The social and environmental benefits and the financial feasibility and sustainability of each policy will be also considered. 

Principal Investigator: Prof. Elena Maggi (elena.maggi@uninsubria.it

Project Title: Health and Well-being Outcomes of Labour Markets Imbalances 

Keywords: labour market imbalances, educational mismatch, health, well-being. 

Abstract: the project aims at investigating how labour market imbalances experienced by individuals can affect their health and well-being. Among possible labour market imbalances, we will focus on educational mismatch. Educational mismatch (such as overeducation and undereducation) has been highlighted as a relevant phenomenon in both developed and developing countries. The number of mismatched employees in the EU economy is expected to increase during the next years. However, its influence on health has been scarcely explored. The research project aims at investigating empirically the effects of educational mismatch on health and well-being in Italy and other European countries by exploiting different datasets (such as “Aspetti della vita quotidiana” (“Multiscopo”) Survey (ISTAT), World Health Survey (WHO), SHARE…) and applying the most suitable econometric methodologies. Other labour market imbalances (such as unemployment, adverse working conditions, etc…) will be also taken into consideration.

Project Title: Non-Practicing Entities in Europe. 

Keywords: innovation, intellectual property, technology 

Abstract: The current context of intellectual property in which the high-tech sectors are operating is rapidly growing and getting increasingly complex. Artificial intelligence, Big Data, IoT and Industry 4.0 are all integrated and multifunctional elements that incorporate high-tech products and systems covered by thousands of patents. The recent increase in patent litigation cases initiated by Non-Practicing Entities (NPEs) has led to an intense debate over their effect on innovation and on the functioning of the intellectual property right system. This research project aims to systematically map the activity of NPEs in Europe, to accurately describe their strategies and to empirically assess their impact on the dynamics of innovation. In order to quantify the presence of NPEs in Europe, the research project follows an original strategy based on the acquisitions of patents filed at the European Patent Office (EPO) and owned by NPEs, by exploiting information from different data sources. 

Principal investigator: Prof. Andrea Vezzulli (andrea.vezzulli@uninsubria.it
