Deadline: 7 November 2019, 13:00 (Rome, Italy time)

About the research:

We are looking for an enthusiastic research fellow to join us, studying mathematical optimization problems that combine both discrete and (continuous) nonlinear elements.
It is well-known that the algorithmic approaches for Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP) and Non-Linear (continuous) Programming (NLP) taken alone
are not sufficient to tackle this class of problems. Indeed, the underlying mathematical structure combines non-convexities of the discrete elements with nonlinear functions.
This is very significant from a practical point of view, in that it allows to more accurately model the complex structures that are required by real applications, ranging from energy, telecommunication to transportation and logistics, fostering an interplay between industry and academia.
Currently, there are several theoretical, algorithmic and computational challenges in MINLP, that have now clearly caught the attention of all major optimization societies.

The position is funded for 2 years.
Please circulate to potentially interested people.
