[DMANET] Postdoctoral Research Positions in Integer Programming at University of Pittsburgh

Apologies for cross-posting.

The Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh
anticipates two postdoctoral research positions in Integer Programming
starting January 2011 or later. The initial appointments are for one
year with an extension possible, subject to the availability of funds.

One postdoctoral associate will work with Juan Pablo Vielma in
developing theory and methodologies for solving Mixed Integer Nonlinear
Programming problems. Necessary qualifications include a Ph.D. in
Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Mathematics or related
field and a strong background in the theory of Integer Programming
and/or Convex Optimization. Computer programming expertise (C/C++) is
highly desirable.

Another postdoctoral associate will work with Andrew Schaefer, Juan
Pablo Vielma and medical school collaborators to apply mathematical
programming techniques to liver transplantation problems. Necessary
qualifications include a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, Operations
Research or a related field, a strong background in Large-Scale Integer
Programming and extensive computer programming expertise (specially
C/C++). No prior research experience in health care is required.

We will be reviewing applications immediately. Candidates should send
their CV to:
