Postdoctoral Position in Optimization at George Washington University

  • 1.  Postdoctoral Position in Optimization at George Washington University

    Posted 5 days ago

    We are looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher whose responsibilities would primarily include the research and development of algorithmic solutions and their coding for stochastic programming and mixed-integer nonlinear programming problems. This position will involve the design of novel solution methods at the intersection of the decision-dependent uncertainty, convex, and combinatorial optimization fields. The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to apply the modeling and algorithmic development to exciting application areas, such as emergency medical applications and energy problems.

    We are looking for candidates with experience and interest in:

    • Computational optimization including mixed-integer, convex, and stochastic programming.
    • Coding and implementing optimization problems and algorithms in C++ and AMPL. Experience with Matlab and Pythons is a plus.
    • Presenting and writing up academic papers.

    The position will be in the Decision Sciences Department (Business School) and in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Engineering School) at the George Washington University. The postdoctoral research will work under the supervision of Professor Miguel Lejeune and Professor Payman Dehghanian. The postdoctoral researcher will work independently as well as collaboratively in a multidisciplinary team environment.

    This is a one-year position with (preferred) starting date on January 18, 2021.
