[DMANET] PhD position at the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne (France) / Vehicle routing for urban distribution with electric vehicles

A PhD position is available at the Campus Provence of Ecole des Mines de
Saint-Etienne (EMSE, France) within the research project
" Electric vehicle routing and scheduling challenges within urban
logistic (EVERS) "
funded by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR).

The research pursued by the PhD student will concern the development of
new models and original solution methods for the optimization of
distribution routes with electric vehicles. The context of the thesis
will be city logistics. It will focus on the dynamic aspects of urban
distribution. Research work will be supported by transportation
scenarios defined with industrial partners.

The PhD student will be located in Gardanne (south of France, near
Marseille) in the research group "Manufacturing Sciences and Logistics"
of EMSE:

The position is for three years starting October or November 2015 (exact
date is negotiable).

Applicants must have a Master Degree (or equivalent) in Computer
Sciences, Applied Mathematics or any related discipline. Applicants
should demonstrate good programming skills and a deep knowledge in
solution methods for combinatorial optimization (integer programming,
metaheuristics). Experience on the development of solution methods for
vehicle routing problems would be appreciated.

Please send your application electronically (preferably as a single pdf
file) including a detailed curriculum vitae and examination results,
plus, if available, a list of reference letters and copies of diploma, to:
Professors Dominique Feillet and Nabil absi:

The deadline for application is September 15, 2015.
