25 Mar 2021 PhD Positions on Network Algorithms

Toggle description

We are looking for two highly motivated and bright PhD students with a
strong expertise and interest in graph and network algorithms in
particular, and in theoretical computer science in general, to join our
team around our project on “Fast Algorithms for a Reactive Network Layer”.

Traditionally and still today, communication networks are operated in a
rather static and conservative manner. This has good reasons:
communication networks constitute a critical infrastructure of our
digital society, and dynamic optimizations always come with risks of
instabilities or even outages. However, it is also known that in principle
a more dynamic network operation can greatly improve the efficiency of
networks: empirical studies show that communication traffic contains
much structure, i.e., it is bursty and skewed. More dynamic network
operations are also useful to support adaptive policy changes, service
relocations, or emerging “self-driving networks". This project is
motivated by the desire to leverage the benefits of more flexible
network operations but without sacrificing the reliability guarantees of
more conservative operations. In fact, we believe that a more adaptive
network operation can even improve the dependability of a network.

We aim to lay the theoretical and algorithmic foundations of more
adaptive networks, using algorithmic tools from dynamic graph
algorithms, approximation algorithms, online algorithms and distributed
algorithms. In addition to our theoretical contributions, we also aim to
show the practical importance of our approaches (possibly in
collaboration with an Internet Service Provider).

The positions are 30h/week and shared by the research groups “Theory and
Applications of Algorithms”, led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Monika Henzinger,
and “Communication Technologies”, led by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stefan Schmid.
Both research groups are internationally well-known and received ERC
grants in the past.

15 Mar 2021 POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER – RAILWAY TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT (18-month position)

Toggle description

Employer
As a test and applied research centre in the railway sector, the IRT Railenium (http://railenium.eu/fr/) aims to develop, through collaborative innovation, the competitiveness of companies as engines of growth and jobs. Railenium implements innovation partnerships between manufacturers (in the broad sense: infrastructure managers, operators, builders and engineers) and academia to ensure a high-level response to the challenges of the railway sector. Based in the Hauts-de-France region, supported by the State and the railway sector, and acting in synergy with the i-Trans competitiveness cluster on land transport, the IRT is backed by a network of excellence centres and research laboratories.
Through the SmartRaCon consortium, composed with the German Research Centre DLR (leader of the consortium), the Spanish Technology Centre CEIT and the British Company NSL, Railenium is an Associate Member on Innovation Programme (IP) 2 (Advanced Traffic Management and Control Systems) of the Joint Undertaking Shift2Rail.
SmartRaCon is the only partner coming from academia.

Position and assignments
This 18-month position is part of the X2Rail-4 projects and will be held by Railenium for a work with University Gustave Eiffel laboratories. In this project, WP8 deals with real-time railway traffic management in case of perturbation.
Railenium’s contributions concern the proposal of an optimization algorithm to manage traffic on very large networks.

08 Mar 2021 Two-year postdoc position

Toggle description

The group of Management Informatics of the Universidad de Talca, Chile, is looking for talented (postdoctoral) researchers in the field of (robust/stochastic) mixed-integer programming (and its applications). Selected candidates are expected to contribute to the design and implementation of novel (exact and heuristic) solution methods to solve robust/stochastic mixed-integer programming problems (e.g., network design, scheduling, routing) emerging from different application areas (supply chain management, power systems engineering, healthcare management, natural resources management, among others).

We are looking for candidates with experience and interest in:
Coding and implementing exact and heuristic algorithms for solving (mixed-integer programming) optimization problems in C++.
Presenting and writing up academic papers.
Some experience with GIS is a plus.
This is a two-year position (with a possible extension to up to three additional years) and selected applicants are expected to join the group starting from March 2021 (although the start date can be negotiated within a relatively flexible time frame). A yearly budget for travel expenses, conference registration fees and other expenditures is also considered.

If you are interested and/or want more information about the position and application process, please contact Eduardo Álvarez-Miranda at ealvarez@utalca.cl and eduardo.alvmir@gmail.com

08 Mar 2021 Research Fellow in optimisation under uncertainty for hydrogen-led decarbonisation strategies

Toggle description

This position is in the Product and Process Systems Engineering Group. The investigators are members of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE), a joint centre between Imperial College London and University College London.

The remit of this role is within the £1.5M EPSRC project “Hydrogen Infrastructure Uncertainty Management for Heat Decarbonisation (HUMAN)”. The project considers tactical and operational decisions related to the deployment of a hydrogen-led system and its interaction with the power grid across spatial and temporal scales. Employing the tools developed within the project the optimal mix of electrification and hydrogen-based decarbonisation of heat will be explored for different regions in the UK.

Key responsibilities include:
•To develop and implement novel methods for multi-stage optimisation under uncertainty.
•To develop and implement machine learning approaches for quantifying and incorporating uncertainty considerations in optimisation problems.
•To develop and implement decomposition/iterative techniques for the solution of large-scale energy systems models.
•To plan and execute real options analysis of hydrogen supply infrastructure to account for and manage risk under different scenarios (including use of hydrogen only for transport, or use if for both transport and heat).
•Plan and prepare papers from own and related research to appropriate peer reviewed journals, international conferences and research seminars.
•Collaborate with other PDRAs and PhD student team members for exchange of knowledge, best practice, as well as to carry out coordinated pieces of research.
•Further information can be found at the Job Description document.

Duration of the role is for 24 months in the first instance.
Key Requirements
The successful candidate must have a PhD in Engineering, Operations Research or Computer Science with advanced understanding of supply chain optimisation and optimisation under uncertainty is required. The applicant must either have already completed a doctorate, or have submitted their thesis prior to taking up the post.

Proven publications track record in developing novel techniques for optimisation under uncertainty and/or the efficient solution of stochastic/robust optimisation programs. Experience in machine learning for uncertainty quantification and modelling. Experience with energy systems models (e.g. UK TIMES) and complex energy datasets. Proficiency with optimisation packages (e.g. GAMS, Pyomo). Experience in programming languages (e.g. Python, Julia) and maintaining online repositories (e.g. GitLab/GitHub). Candidates must have excellent communication and team-working skills, the ability to write high-standard reports and work collaboratively with colleagues to generate high-quality research outputs.

Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment Please note: appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 - £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
