None PostDoc position for a project on lastmile with crowdsourcing

Toggle description

Delivery of products purchased by online customers is an increasingly important problem for e-commerce companies, representing a substantial para of their costs. The final step --- last mile delivery, which conveys the product to the customer --- is a key stage in the process.
Several business models proposed recently exploit the concept of crowdsourcing in which, in addition to professional couriers, ordinary citizens are invited to participate in the delivery process. However, current models present a set of weaknesses and do not adequately address many of the concerns associated with real-world implementation.

This project will address such concerns. The main concept is to have in-store customers delivering parcels on their way home to customers that ordered on-line, besides maintaining a backup of professionals for delivering the remaining parcels. This approach will reduce environmental impacts and urban congestion at low marginal cost to the company.

The underlying problem associated to LastMile can be modeled as a mixed-integer optimization problem. The most elementary models are deterministic, but for realistic outcomes they must be extended to stochastic contexts. We expect that the solution process will involve a intricate framework, making use of optimization solvers as well as ad hoc components specific to this problem.

Machine learning
An important part of the problem involves modeling the probability of acceptance for outsourcing tasks, as well as their impacts on delivery costs. This will involve dynamically analyzing data and extracting relevant information, making use of the state-of-the-art in machine learning.

•Modeling practically relevant situations yet unaddressed
•Researching new compensation schemes for guaranteeing sustainability of the models
•Researching efficient optimization algorithms for simultaneously matching parcels to couriers and optimizing the routes of the firm’s own fleet.

•Vehicle routing
•Stochastic programming
•Machine learning

Key competences:
•Mathematical modeling and optimization
•Stochastic modeling
•Computer programming

14 Jun 2019 Postdoc position in Theoretical Computer Science

Toggle description

The Department of Computer Science at Lund University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in theoretical computer science.

The postdoctoral researcher will be working in the research group of Jakob Nordström. Much of the activities of this research group revolve around the themes of efficient algorithms for satisfiability in propositional logic (SAT solving) and lower bounds on the efficiency of methods for reasoning about SAT (proof complexity). Examples of theoretical questions of interest are analyzing proof systems formalizing the computational power of Gröbner bases (polynomial calculus) and integer linear programming (cutting planes), and proving stronger lower bound in the hierarchy of Frege proof systems. Another interesting area is the use of linear and semidefinite programming to solve hard combinatorial problems and of proof complexity to establish when problems are beyond the reach of such methods. Problems of the kind above have turned out to have deep, and sometimes surprising, connections to other topics such as, e.g., circuit complexity, communication complexity, and hardness of approximation, and therefore researchers in these or other related areas are more than welcome to apply.

Within the overall framework sketched above, the postdoc will be expected and encouraged to contribute to and influence the research agenda. Taking part in teaching graduate seminar courses is encouraged but not required. Travel funding is included, and the group also receives short-term and long-term visitors on a regular basis.

This postdoc position is a full-time employed position for one year with a possible (and expected) one-year extension. The expected starting date is in August-September 2019, although this is to some extent negotiable.
