The Artificial Intelligence Institute for Advances Optimization (AI4OPT), invites applications for multiple Postdoctoral Fellow positions. Applicants from the following research areas will be considered: analytics and machine learning; energy and sustainable systems; optimization; supply chain engineering; and system informatics and control.
The Artificial Intelligence Institute for Advances in Optimization (AI4OPT) is one of 11 new centers funded by National Science Foundation (NSF). AI4OPT will focus on bringing together the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and mathematical optimization to achieve research breakthroughs in automated decision making that could not be attained separately. Another component of the institute is to democratize access to AI education, research, and jobs for underrepresented minority and female students and teachers. The interinstitutional team includes researchers and faculty from Georgia Tech, UC Berkely, University of Southern California, Clark Atlanta University, the University of Texas at Arlington, and Spelman College. It also includes major corporations. The director of AI4OPT is A. Russell Chandler III Chair and ISyE Professor Pascal Van Hentenryck with the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Successful candidates will be expected to perform independent research that primarily focuses on applying large-scale optimization and machine learning to critical applications in power systems, logistics and supply chains, resilience and sustainability, and circuit design and control. Candidates will be evaluated on their academic accomplishments and the strength of their research proposal.
Requests for information may be directed to Dr. Pascal Van Hentenryck, firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the search will continue until the positions are filled. A Ph.D. is required by the start of the appointment, and a background check must be completed prior to employment.
Georgia Tech is a top-ranked public research university situated in the heart of Atlanta, a diverse and vibrant city with great economic and cultural strengths. The Institute is a member of the University System of Georgia, the Georgia Research Alliance, and the Association of American Universities. Georgia Tech prides itself on its technology resources, collaborations, high-quality student body, and its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Georgia Tech has policies to promote a healthy work-life balance.
Diversity is one of Georgia Tech’s greatest strengths and one of the major priorities identified in our strategic plan. Georgia Tech is an equal education/employment opportunity institution dedicated to building a diverse community. We believe that diversity includes the individual differences among people from differing social, racial, or ethnic backgrounds, gender, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, economic circumstances, personal characteristics, philosophical outlooks, life experiences, perspectives, beliefs, expectations, physical abilities, and aspirations. Each of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contributes to the richness of the Georgia Tech community.
