Latent variable models for longitudinal data.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In longitudinal studies the main interest is focused on the investigation of the behaviour of the individuals over time. Often, multiple responses may be observed in the different occasions leading to the so-called multivariate longitudinal data.
In this context, latent variable models play a twofold role: they can be either resorted to in order to characterize the data when the variables of interest are not directly observable or when heterogeneities in the behaviours of the statistical units cannot be explained by the observed variables (unobserved heterogeneity). Both aspects can also be jointly dealt with.
This research project will address the issue of modeling latent variables for longitudinal data according to both perspectives, considering methodological and empirical issues also through the development of suitable estimation algorithms.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
