Economy, data analytics, translational research and neuroscience

1 Research Collaborator position
(Deadline February 5th, 2018 12:00 )

Participation in the research activities for both Research Projects ‘"Human Resources and Intellectual Capital" and ‘"Business Performance and Management Science’" related to investigate the behavioral and neural correlates of skill formation and human resources’ management, and consumers’ response to marketing stimuli, respectively. The research projects will engage the use of brain imaging methodologies, biometrics and other technologies for investigating the factors influencing how each employee performs in the organization, or how consumer responds when presented with products and/or related stimuli. In particular, the comprehension of how information on a specific product/item is conveyed through different sensory modalities or media channels, and influences decision-making processes, represents a current challenge for neuroscientific research. Original approaches in neuroimaging studies applied to social sciences, behavior, decision-making processes should, not simply, characterize the individual (social and personological) profile, behavioral and brain functional processes, but mainly look for potential predictive (bio)markers of individual choices or social outcome.
