The MINOA consortium is seeking highly motivated and qualified Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) that are looking for obtaining a PhD degree in applied mathematics, operations research, engineering and computer science. Once recruited, you will study applications of European and international relevance in areas such as energy, logistics, engineering, natural sciences, and analytics. In total, 12 positions are available within the network.
You will be trained through an innovative training program based on individual research projects motivated by these applications. As special challenges, you will work on dynamic aspects and optimisation in real time, optimisation under uncertainty, multilevel optimisation or on non-commutativity in quantum computing. You will devise new effective algorithms and computer implementations and will validate your methods for the applications with respect to metrics that you will define. You will derive recommendations, both for optimised MINO applications and for the effectiveness of the novel methodologies.
Personally, you will belong to a new generation of highly-skilled researchers that will strengthen Europe's human capital base in R&I in the fast growing field of mathematical optimisation. Your ESR research project will be pursued in joint supervision between experienced practitioners from leading European industries and leading optimisation experts, covering a wide range of scientific fields.
The network consists of 11 academic partner institutions and six industrial partners from different countries in Europe. The ESR project descriptions, the starting dates and other details are contained in the corresponding attachment.
The duration of the available ESR positions is 36 months for each project.
