Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU)Erlangen
The Chair EDOM - Economics, Discrete Optimization, Mathematics (Chair Wirtschaftsmathematik) is offering a
The optimization group at FAU has more than 25 years of experience in modeling and solving complex and very large-scale planning and decision problems from
logistics, energy, production, engineering, and the natural sciences, see https://www.mso.math.fau.de/de/edom/.
Their key expertise is in developing and applying models and algorithms, which yield proven optimal solutions to optimization problems. This involves techniques like linear,
nonlinear, and integer programming, robust optimization, graph algorithms, polyhedral combinatorics, and the like. Furthermore, design of efficient heuristics and exact algorithms
together with effective implementations is key expertise. The chair EDOM - Economics, Discrete Optimization, Mathematics (Chair Wirtschaftsmathematik) consists of 20+ PhD students
and Postdocs, and is headed by Frauke Liers and Alexander Martin. The group participates in many projects funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG), the German Federal Ministry
of Education and Research (BMBF), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the European Union, as well as by the industry
Research on optimization models and methods and their real-world applications, e.g. energy, logistics and analytics
Research independence in mixed-integer linear and nonlinear optimization, optimization under uncertainty, especially robust optimization, discrete mathematics, nonlinear optimization and mathematical data science
We are looking for a team player who has a strong interest in coordinating research projects. Candidates with background in pure mathematics are also welcome if they can prove interest in transferring their theory to solve applied problems.
Post-doctoral position (100%, German TV-L E 14) in mathematical optimization at the Chair EDOM - Economics, Discrete Optimization, Mathematics (Chair Wirtschaftsmathematik) at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Erlangen, Germany. This position is a temporary employment for a period of three years, with possible extension by another three years. It may start as soon as possible.
Informal inquiries and applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should include cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications and statement
of research interest and at least one reference letter.
