[DMANET] Phd Position in Mathematical Optimization (University of Vienna)

A PhD position in Mathematical Optimization is available at the
University of Vienna, Institute of Statistics and Operations Research

The position is within the research project "Optimization and Analysis
of Large Scale Networks" funded by the Vienna Science and Technology
Fund (WWTF) and is available for up to three years. Further extension
might be possible. The gross salary per year is approximately EUR
28.000. The position does not include any teaching obligations (optional
teaching would be paid separately).

The candidate should have (or expect to have shortly) an excellent
master degree in operations research, mathematics, computer science or a
closely related area. A successful candidate has profound knowledge in
(computational) mathematical optimization (in particular mixed integer
programming) in theory and practice. Solid implementation skills are a
must. The candidate will work on large-scale mathematical optimization
problems arising in logistic, social and / or telecommunication
networks. Collaboration with project partners from Italy (University of
Padua) and France (ESSEC Business School, Paris) is expected.

The application should include the candidate's CV, an abstract of the
master's thesis, a motivation letter, and contact details of references
