Job Details

The department of Informatics is looking to appoint a Postdoctoral Researcher to work on a project on modelling the Lloyd's of London insurance market funded by the Accenture Turing strategic partnership.  

The project will be led by Carmine Ventre,, and will run for one year starting from the 1st of January 2024. The project will explore our ability to simulate, experiment with, and therefore understand the dynamics of the Lloyd’s insurance markets, forecast future market environments, and ultimately help better decision making of market participants. The focus will be on modelling and accounting for their incentives by adopting game-theoretic techniques. The use of machine learning techniques to improve the scalability of the simulator and the adaptivity of the strategies adopted by market players could also be investigated.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 12 months with a potential start date from 1st January 2024 or shortly after.
