Leeds School of Business at University of Colorado—Boulder invites applications for its Ph.D. program in Operations Management for Fall 2016 admissions. At least two positions are available. The ideal candidate should have a solid background in optimization, linear programming, integer programming and analysis of algorithms. Proficiency in a computer programming language (C, C++, Java, python or Matlab) is preferred. 

Admitted students receive a full tuition waiver, a partial waiver of student health insurance costs, and stipend as long as they are in good standing with the department. Students work approximately 20 hours per week as research and/or teaching assistants in return for support. The 2015-2016 stipend is $25,000 for the nine-month academic year. Summer research fellowships are also available. While the continuation of financial aid is contingent on satisfactory performance, most students are funded for four years. Students may request a fifth year of funding. Fifth-year funding decisions are based a combination of factors including available funds, the student's progress in the program, and the division's support of the student.
