  • Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Concordia University in M ontreal, Canada is  currently  accepting application s  for postdoctoral fellowships valued at  $ 50 , 0 00  per year  (plus benefits)  for each of two years In the face of a global pandemic, hospitals need to restructure their supply chain in order to be more robust, resilient and responsive to the needs of their patients and maintain a continuous flow of critical medical staff and supplies while minimizing delays and shortages. The goal of this research program is to leverage the advanced IT technologies and data-driven decision support tools towards the needs of hospital supply chains (HSCs). More specifically, we first aim to design a cloud-based HSC management system to enhance collaborative information sharing among the key stakeholders and provide real-time access to the inventory of medical supplies. Incorporating a real-time inventory management system that relies on a data-driven inventory control policy and procurement planning procedure is also within the realm of this objective. Our second goal revolves around designing a data-driven  decision model imbedded into a digital platform for the dynamic allocation of staff and medical resources to critical points of demand in a regional healthcare (HC) network comprising of hospitals, long-term care centers, and senior residents. The main methodology to achieve these goals relies on the latest advances in large-scale optimization, data analytics and simulation.   Eligibility requirements:    Applicants must not currently hold a postdoctoral appointment at Concordia    Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered Applicants must adhere to the postdoctoral fellow eligibility criteria outlined in Concordia University’s  Postdoctoral Policy      Timeline and Application Process:  Application deadline: August 31, 2021   Start date: September 30, 2021   Submission process:     All documents must be submitted to ( Dr. Masoumeh Kazemi Zanjani ) at ( masoumeh.kazemizanjani@concordia.ca )   Please include the reference number with your application   Application checklist:  One to three (1-3) page research statement demonstrating fit with the program described above    Current curriculum vitae demonstrating research excellence and a capacity for leadership in the domain (maximum 5 pages).    Two letters of reference from academic supervisors or current employers to be sent via e-mail directly to: ( Dr. Masoumeh Kazemi Zanjani ) at ( masoumeh.kazemizanjani@concordia.ca )   Concordia University is a vibrant research and teaching environment, with state-of-the-art research facilities and many research centers.
