PhD position in Graph Algorithms - University of Orléans, France

The Graph, Algorithms and Models of Computation research group at the Computer Science Laboratory of Orleans (LIFO)
of University of Orléans, France, has the financial support for a PhD position.
The position is for three years starting October 1, 2017 (standard french PhD support).
The successful candidate will be working under the supervision of Dr Mathieu Liedloff and Professor Ioan Todinca.

The application deadline is March 22, 2017.

----------------------
RESEARCH DESCRIPTION
----------------------
The main goal of this PhD project is to design exponential-time algorithms to solve NP-hard graph problems.
Indeed, we cannot expect polynomial worst-case time algorithms solving exactly such problems, except if P=NP.
Thus we aim at designing and analyzing algorithms with running-time O(c^n), where n is the instance size
and c is a (suitably small) constant. An exponential running-time is also unavoidable when we want to enumerate
an exponential number of objects (e.g., subset of vertices in a graph fulfilling some properties). Other
algorithmic approaches will be studied as well during the PhD project, especially parameterized algorithms.


----------------------
SALARY AND LOCATION
----------------------
The monthly gross salary is about 1760 euros. The PhD student will be located in Orléans in
the research group GAMoC (Graphs, Algorithms and Computational Models). The city of Orléans
is situated in the Center of France, 1 hour by train from Paris.


----------------------
REQUIREMENTS
----------------------
We are looking for highly motivated Ph.D. candidates, with a strong background
in construction and analysis of algorithms. Background in algorithmic graph theory is highly desirable.
Knowledge in discrete mathematics, complexity, computability and graph theory is appreciated.
Background in moderately exponential algorithms or FPT algorithms would be an asset.

The applicants must have a Master's degree in Computer Science or related fields.
English is a required language; French may be useful in every day life, teaching, etc.


----------------------
APPLICATION
----------------------
Applications (including detailed CV, examination results from last 2 years, letter of motivation, possibly letters of recommendation) should be send
to Dr. Mathieu Liedloff (Mathieu.Liedloff@univ-orleans.fr ) and Prof. Ioan Todinca (Ioan.Todinca@univ-orleans.fr ), the supervisors of the PhD project.

The application deadline is March 22, 2017.

28 Feb 2017 PhD Position in Optimisation of Renewable Energy

Toggle description

A PhD studentship in optimization is available at the Dept. of Management Science, University of Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow, UK, for the project topic entitled "Optimization of Offshore Renewable Energy Arrays for Minimal Life-Cycle Costs".

Funding is available to cover 3 years of tuition fees plus a tax free stipend (£14,653 for 2017-18, and projected to increase to £15,020 for 2018-19 and £15,395 for 2019-20). The studentship is open to candidates from any nationality (UK/EU/international), however, the fees will be covered at the UK/EU level.

The application deadline is 28th February 2017.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

A fundamental difficulty in developing offshore renewable energy (ORE) sites is that the uncertain environmental conditions make accurately assessing the life-cycle costs of a site a challenging problem. In particular, logistical operations throughout the life of a site are subject to uncertain operating conditions, and it is therefore difficult to plan and schedule these operations, and to estimate the resulting durations and costs. Similarly, the generating potential throughout the operation of a given site is dependent on the realised weather as well as the availability of each asset, and uncertainties in each of these make it difficult to accurately predict the profits to be gained from energy production. Decisions on aspects such as the size, layout and composition of a site are therefore difficult to accurately quantify and compare.

This project will aim to develop optimisation models to identify the best strategy for designing an ORE site. A complimentary PhD project in the Dept. of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at Strathclyde will take an alternative approach to the problem, and as both projects progress in parallel, mutual developments will feed into both projects. This will provide a cross-disciplinary approach to a challenging research problem with potential industry impact.

FUNDING AND ELIGIBILITY

Funding is available to cover 3 years of tuition fees at the UK/EU level, plus a tax free stipend of £14,653 for 2017-18, and projected to increase to £15,020 for 2018-19 and £15,395 for 2019-20. The student will be given opportunities to attend a conference and/or specialized training every year.

The PhD project requires a highly numerate graduate with interests in renewable energy. Candidates should have at least a strong Honours degree or equivalent (a strong 2:1 Honours degree, or a B.Sc. degree with 3.3 GPA in a 4.0 system), or preferably a Master’s degree in a quantitative discipline such as industrial engineering, operations research, mathematics or computer science (amongst others). Experience in programming and fundamental knowledge in optimization are not essential but highly desirable. Candidates who are not native English speakers will be required to provide evidence for their English skills (such as by IELTS or similar tests that are approved by UKVI, or a degree completed in an English speaking country).

Applications are admitted until 28th February 2017, or until a suitable candidate is found thereafter.

Prof. Edoardo Amaldi, Professore Ordinario di Ricerca Operativa, Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), Politecnico di Milano

Type of contract
1 year contract (“Assegno di Ricerca”)

Project Description
The position is co-funded by “Regione Emilia Romagna” to LEAP (Laboratorio Energia Ambiente Piacenza, a laboratory participated by Politecnico di Milano and Università Cattolica) in the framework of the Research Project entitled “Efficity”. The project objective is to to develop methods and algorithms for the optimal scheduling, operation, control and design (investment planning) of smart energy networks with high share of renewable sources (solar, wind, etc).
The project involves both academic partners (Politecnico di Milano, Università di Bologna, Università di Parma) and industrial partners. The industrial partners include leading Italian utility companies for the management of energy networks (CPL Concordia, SIRAM, ANTAS), OPTIT (a spin-off company of University of Bologna in the field of optimization and IT solutions) and a number of construction companies involved in the network “Condomini Intelligenti”.
LEAP, with the supervision of professors of Politecnico di Milano, has to coordinate the activities of the project and to develop novel tools (methods, models and algorithms) for optimizing the scheduling and design (investment planning) of smart energy networks.
In today’s state of the art approaches for optimizing smart energy networks, the scheduling and design problems are tackled with Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) models and methods. Important aspects to be considered are the uncertainty associated to the forecasts of production from intermittent renewable sources (solar and wind energy) as well as the uncertainty in the forecast of heat and power demands (to be satisfied by the energy network. The main approaches to account for such uncertainty are robust optimization and stochastic programming.
The candidate will have to develop MILP models of the energy networks (LEAP researchers will provide the required knowledge on energy systems and energy networks), devise ad hoc solution/decomposition algorithms (the models and algorithms will be coded in AMPL, GAMS, Matlab or other programming language to be agreed with the supervisors), and apply the methods to case studies provided by the industrial partners.
Due to the relevance of the topics, some tasks may be performed in collaboration with international universities (e.g., ETH and EPFL) and the results of the project will be published in international journals and conference proceedings.

Expected starting date: End of February - Beginning of March with some flexibility.

Duration of the contract: 1 year, with possibility of one year extension

21 Feb 2017 Postdoc position in Operations Research

Toggle description

A post-doc position in Operations research available at INRIA Lille (France) in the INOCS team : https://team.inria.fr/inocs/
Title : Revenue management in city logistics
Duration : 18 months

Do not hesitate to contact Luce Brotcorne : luce.brotcorne@inria.fr

The postdoc will work on a research project devoted to revenue management for attended home delivery service. Attended home delivery is a last-mile delivery service, where the customer must be present for the delivery. The classical delivery model utilizes couriers who serve customer requests. Each customer request consists in pickup and delivery locations (o-d pairs) associated with a tight delivery time window on which the delivery company and the customer agree. This research project aims to develop efficient pricing and revenue management methods for smoothing demand peaks and maximize the revenue for a company operating such a service. This approach will be based on an existing allocation module which determines the couriers’ schedules while minimizing the total costs. This research project is conducted within an industrial cooperation with Colisweb, a start-up based in Lille.

We look for candidates with a Ph.D. in Optimization, Operations Research with a strong track record evidenced by publications in top quality journals. A strong background in mathematical programming is required.

The successful candidate will join INOCS, a Belgian-french INRIA team, which aims to develop new models, algorithmic techniques and implementations for optimization problems with complex structure.

The position should be taken up in March 2017 or soon after.

Please include a CV and research statement with your application and arrange for two referees to send letters of recommendation to luce.brotcorne@inria.fr by the closing date.

The closing date for applications is on February 21 2017.
