[DMANET] Two Ph.D. positions in discrete optimization at TU Darmstadt

There are two Ph.D. positions (100%) available in the Discrete
Optimization Group of Marc Pfetsch at TU Darmstadt, Germany, starting
now/in November.

1. One Ph.D. position in a project within the German Priority Program
SPP 2298 "Theoretical Foundations of Deep Learning", see

The project "Globally Optimal Neural Network Training" deals with
global optimization in the context of deep learning and is run together
with Prof. Sebastian Pokutta (Zuse Institute Berlin/TU Berlin).

2. One Ph.D. position in the collaborative BMBF-project "RODES: Robust
Optimization for the Design of Energy Systems". This interdisciplinary
project deals with the robust design of energy systems like electricity

The applicants are expected to have a strong background in discrete
optimization with a Master's degrees in Mathematics. The positions will
be fully funded, and the successful applicants will be receiving a
salary according to the German E13 level. Knowledge of German is a plus.

If you are interested, please contact Prof. Marc Pfetsch
