[DMANET] Postdoc position (up to 4 years) in the area of Evolutionary Computation at The University of Adelaide, Australia

The Optimisation and Logistics group at the

School of Computer Science,
The University of Adelaide, Australia

has an open fixed Term position for up to 4 years.
(Level A) $89,610 to $96,007 per annum plus an employer contribution of up to 17% superannuation may apply.

This is a position for a postdoctoral researcher working on bio-inspired computing for problems with chance constraints.

We are seeking an excellent postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in computer science, mathematics, or related field. The successful applicant should carry out theoretical or applied work on evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimisation, and related bio-inspired computing methods for problems with stochastic constraints.

Candidates having experiences in the field of randomised methods and/or computational complexity of bio-inspired computation are highly encouraged to apply.

The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the Optimisation and Logistics group led by Professor Frank Neumann. Currently, around 20 researchers from several nationalities work in the Optimisation and Logistics group. The group carries out leading international research work in the area of artificial intelligence and evolutionary computation and has strong international collaborations with leading research groups in Australia, Europe and the US. A generous travel support for the attendance of internationally leading conference and international collaborations will be available to the successful applicant.

To be successful you will need:
• A PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics or related field.
• Strong publication track record on evolutionary computation at leading international conferences such as AAAI, GECCO, IJCAI, and PPSN.
• Background on optimisation of problems with stochastic constraints.
• Demonstrated experience in supporting a research team by contributing to the mentoring of PhD and graduate/undergraduate students.
• Commitment to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, and ability to contribute to the diversity of the School community.

Applications close 11:55pm, 19 March 2022
