At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Materials and Production one or more Postdoc positions in the area of Operations Research and Algorithms Design is open for appointment from September 1st 2021 or soon thereafter. The position(s) is available for a period of two years. Department of Materials and Production (MP) has a wide-ranging research and educational environment at Aalborg University. The Department's mission is to meet the future's demands for new materials and production systems by directing the whole value chain from basic material understanding, materials' applications in mechanical constructions, industrial production and management. The department has several strong, international and innovative research groups which comprise everything from basic science to strategic and applicable research. The activities encompass research as well as education within materials, mechanics, physics, production technique, and industrial management and innovation. As an employee at the Department, you will be part of an international research environment, where focus is on innovation, knowledge sharing/building and interdisciplinary collaborations.
The position is within the Operations Research (OR) group at Aalborg University and the research is in a highly synergic cooperation with leading Danish and European companies and international academic partners. The OR group focuses on analyzing, modeling and solving decision problems primarily in the domains of manufacturing, transportation and defense. Furthermore, the group has a research focus on autonomous systems and scheduling and routing algorithms from areas such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs), mobile robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
As a successful applicant you will participate in education, academic and collaborative research activities in the group and with external partners. The research covered by the position will be within the core of the research group and the applicant’s profile should therefore address one or several of the areas of analyzing, modeling and solving decision problems.
We are looking for candidates with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of computer science, operations research and mathematics. A background in machine learning or computational optimization together with good programming skills will be an advantage.
Candidates with demonstrated project participation and clear research height in terms of Web of Science journal papers will be preferred.
Appropriate candidates should have a PhD degree in either Operation Research, Mathematics, Computer Science or a related field.
Interested applicants may obtain further professional information from Professor MSO Izabela Ewa Nielsen, +459940 7318 or e-mail: email@example.com.
