The Georgia Tech H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow who will work on optimization theory, algorithms, and applications. This team member will analyze and design innovative algorithms and problem-solving solutions that support various optimization and machine learning projects.
You will work in the research group of Professor Nick Sahinidis (currently 8 PhDs, one postdoc, and growing). We perform cutting-edge research in optimization and machine learning and create enabling technologies across science and engineering. Our research group has multiple ongoing collaborations, including national laboratories and experimentalists, and provides a stimulating innovative research environment.
As a member of our research team, you will have the freedom to suggest new research initiatives to the team. You will also have opportunities to collaborate with experimentalists who require optimization expertise to address critical energy, environmental, and health problems.
A Ph.D. in a quantitative subject, such as applied mathematics, computer science, operations research, industrial engineering, or related field, is required. The ideal candidate has prior experience with nonlinear or integer programming algorithms.
Requests for more information may be directed to Professor Nick Sahinidis, firstname.lastname@example.org. The preferred start time for this position is early 2022 but there is considerable flexibility. This position is extendable to 3-5 years. A complete application must include a cover letter, research statement, and three letters of reference.
