Call for a postdoc position on the topic “A dynamic analysis of supply-chain networks and their disruption”

Supply chains are the intricate networks of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources involved in the production and distribution of goods and services. They are vulnerable to disruptions, which can be caused by a wide range of factors and can have profound consequences. Organizations are increasingly aware of the need to build more resilient supply chains. In the face of disruption, supply chain management is a critical function.

A supply chain is modeled as a network whose vertices are firms and whose edges represent their interactions. The network evolves dynamically, and may be affected by sudden disruptions. Many of the existing supply-chain models are static and, when dealing with disruptions, compare pre- and post-shock equilibria. In real life, the effects of disruption take time to spread across the network. Understanding this temporal element is fundamental for taking mitigating actions. The main goal of this project is to study dynamic models of supply-chain disruption. The formal analysis of this phenomenon will use tools from network theory, probability theory, game theory, operations management, optimization, dynamical systems, machine learning, data science. We are looking for a candidate who has a strong expertise in at least one of the above fields.
