[DMANET] PhD Opportunity in Paris

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate for a PhD in operations
research and data science. The PhD is in collaboration with Padam (www.padam
.io), a company working on a turnkey platform and developping simulation
tools for on-demand transportation systems.

At the interface of 2 hot and trend topics, the project will be oriented on
the following aspects:

- The design of exact and heuristics algorithms for routing problems to
efficiently tackle instance of the company

- The use of original data science and probabilistic methods to improve
routing decisions

To achieve this goal, the candidate will have to suggest novel algorithms
combining advanced optimization techniques (e.g. mathematical programming
models, hyper- and meta- heuristics) with robust and data-driven
optimization techniques.

Applicants should have (or be about to finish) a relevant master degree.
Good knowledge of operations research tech niques (integer linear
programming, graphs etc.) and data science/machine learning tools are
strongly recommended. The applicant should also have good programming
skills in any programming language. Expertise in working with aunix-like
system (e.g. ubuntu) and knowledge in database models will be appreciated.

The PhD thesis will take place on 2 locations:
- Paris 13 University - 99, av. Jean-Baptiste Clément - 93430 Villetaneuse
- Padam - 34 boulevard Sebastopol - 75001 Paris
