[DMANET] Postdoctoral position in Mixed Integer Linear Optimization for Water Resource Management at the University of California, Davis

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in applied and computational
mixed integer linear optimization for applications in water resource management.

The candidate is expected to closely work with a group of computational
scientists and water resources management engineers. The candidate's
responsibilities include the analysis and development of real-world
mixed-integer linear optimization models, performance tuning of open
source mixed integer solvers, and the development of a high
performance implementation for multi-core computers.

Experience in mixed integer optimization modeling, familiarity with
the COIN-OR solvers (CBC, CLP), Java programming including Java Native
Interface (JNI), and the principles of parallel computing on
multi-core machines are expected.

The initial appointment is for one year, and the renewal of the
appointment in the following years is contingent upon excellent
performance and the renewal of government contracts. A competitive salary
based on the applicant's qualifications and experience will be offered.

The position is available immediately and will be filled as soon
as a suitable candidate is identified. The candidate should have
received (or be about to receive) a doctoral degree in optimization,
computational mathematics, operations research, or computer science. Applicants
should send a vita, bibliography with relevant reprints, and a brief
description of research experience and interests to

Professor Matthias Koeppe
Department of Mathematics
University of California
Davis, CA 95616


Professor Zhaojun Bai
Department of Computer Science
University of California

Applicants should also arrange for two letters of recommendation
to be sent to the same address.

UC Davis is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement
of diversity among its faculty and staff.
