[DMANET] Postdoc position in Global Optimization at Charles University in Prague

Postdoc position
Department of Applied Mathematics (KAM)
Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics
Prague, Czech Republic

Applications are invited for a postdoc position at Charles University in
Prague, Czech Republic. The position is for one year (with possibility
of renewal), starting July 1, 2019.

The topic of the project is:

"Interval methods for global optimization"

In particular, the research will be conducted in some of the following

- Interval linear algebra for global optimization, properties of
interval matrices, complexity issues
- Theory and methods for checking fundamental properties of functions
on feasible domains
- Convex underestimators and the corresponding relaxation properties
- Investigation of enclosing objects, relaxation on these objects and
development of contractors

Candidates should have a completed PhD in Mathematics or Computer
Science, and demonstrate potential for excellence in research. It is
expected to have strong background in optimization. Skills in operations
research, interval computation and programming are appreciated as well.

Please send your CV and cover letter by April 30, 2019, electronically
