PhD student position in computer science / economics, Toulouse (France)

We invite applications for an interdisciplinary 3 years PhD position in computer science and economics. The projects title is: "Epistemic states, Trust and responsibility of economical agents: from theoretical aspects to experimental studies"

The objective of this research project is to study situations requiring responsibility and trust with experimental economic paradigms. Within the domain of multi-agent systems we will evaluate how and when responsibility will lead to trust when interactions are repeated. The results will then be theoretically extended from an individual to an institutional level, and the resulting states will be formally characterized by using epistemological concepts of trust and responsibility.

For futher questions please contact: Andreas Herzig, http://www.irit.fr/~Andreas.Herzig or Astrid Hopfensitz, http://hopfensitz.googlepages.com/

Applications must be received before 19 September 2009. For more information, see http://www.irit.fr/~Andreas.Herzig/boursePres.txt.
