(Dates are approximate. More details to come soon)

Position starting on: January 2022

Esperienza richiesta ai candidati:
dottorato di ricerca in tematiche riguardanti la ricerca operativa e/o l’ingegneria e la bioingegneria industriale
AREE CUN: 09- Ingegneria industriale e dell’informazione oppure 01 – scienze matematiche e informatiche


L’elevata complessità dei servizi di assistenza domiciliare richiede una gestione ottimale delle risorse umane (medici, infermieri, ...) e materiali (dispositivi, materiali consumabili, ...) coinvolte nell’erogazione dei servizi. In particolare, le nuove tipologie di servizio (come ad esempio terapie di riabilitazione complesse, esami diagnostici, monitoraggi del paziente) richiedono un'accurata gestione delle risorse materiali coinvolte nel servizio. Sfortunatamente, i dispositivi e i materiali non sono considerati nei modelli presenti in letteratura e nella pratica di diversi erogatori di servizi domiciliari, come non è incluso il personale tecnico necessario per supportarne l'utilizzo. Il progetto si occupa quindi della gestione integrata delle risorse materiali nei servizi di assistenza domiciliare, considerando due livelli. Il livello principale è quello organizzativo, per cui ci si prefigge di arricchire i modelli presenti in letteratura con la componente riguardante le risorse materiali, focalizzandosi su modelli di ottimizzazione stocastica e robusta in modo da includere la gestione dell’incertezza tipica dei servizi di assistenza domiciliare. A questo si affiancherà un livello tecnico, riguardante la valutazione dei dispositivi più adatti ad essere utilizzati nell’assistenza domiciliare, e la definizione delle specifiche tecniche per lo sviluppo futuro di dispositivi appositamente ottimizzati per l’uso domiciliare.

The high complexity of home care services requires an optimal management of human (doctors, nurses, ...) and material (devices, consumables, ...) resources involved in service provisioning. In particular, new types of service (e.g., complex rehabilitation therapies, diagnostic tests, patient monitoring) require careful management of the material resources involved in the service, which can represent a relevant cost item, and their management may influence the scheduling of visits. Unfortunately, devices and materials are not considered in the models available in the literature and in the practice of several home service providers, as well as the technical staff necessary to use them. Therefore, the project addresses the integrated management of material resources in home care services, considering two levels. The main level is the organizational one, for which we aim to enrich the available models with a component dealing with material resources, focusing on stochastic and robust optimization models in order to include the management of the uncertainty typical of home care services. This will be accompanied by a technical level, with the evaluation the existing devices that are most suitable for use in home care services, and with the definition of technical specifications for the future development of devices specifically optimized for home use.

19 Oct 2021 PhD position in Black-Box optimization for clean energy technologies

Toggle description

Advisor: Margherita Porcelli
Application: from 5 to 19 October 2021 (online through the university web platform)
Start date: 1 January 2022


The efficient solution of optimization problems arising in real applications increasingly calls for the development of efficient and easy-to-use implementations of derivative-free algorithms. In applications such as engineering design, medical image registration and design of algorithms (amongst many others), optimization problems are often defined by functions computed by costly simulation. Functions have therefore to be treated as expensive black-boxes (EBB), and due to the high computational cost involved, it is important to use optimization algorithms that produce reasonably good solutions within a limited number of function evaluations.

The aim of the PhD project is to bring significant advances in the solution of simulation-based optimization problems via derivative-free optimization (DFO) by addressing one of the main challenges in this area: the DFO scalability. In this context, the PhD student will focus on the mathematical and computational analysis of a large scale EBB industrial problem that will contribute to the development of low-emission energy technologies.

The PhD student will benefit by an exciting internship at Baker Hughes, a leading company in the field of energy production technology, and by international collaborations with Ana Luisa Custodio - NOVA School of Science and Technology, Lisbon (Portugal) and Elisa Riccietti - ENS Lyon (France).

Please, contact Margherita Porcelli ( for further information.

Toggle description

Advisor: Fabiana Zama
Application: from 5 to 19 October 2021 (online through the university web platform).
Start date: 1 January 2022


Fast Field Cycling Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (FFC-NMR) is a low-field magnetic resonance imaging technique, which is particularly useful in non-destructive analysis to reveal information about slow molecular dynamics. FFC-NMR has a wide range of applications and is a crucial tool in improving industrial processes, reducing energy consumption and the waste of resources. From a mathematical point of view, this is a non-linear inverse problem, severely ill-conditioned, whose solution needs a comprehensive analysis of its mathematical properties and requires the study of efficient numerical methods.

The activity of the PhD research consists of the analysis of the mathematical properties of the FFC-NMR models and the development of numerical methods for its solution to promote a green application of the FFC.

Objectives of the research program:

-Analysis of the models in terms of well-posedness and stability and test of numerical methods.
-Development of robust algorithms and validation on different types of relaxation data.
- Promotion of the application of the algorithms for analyzing NMRD profiles by implementing a user-friendly interface for industrial use.

The program includes strong interaction with industrial partners who provide space and facilities for an internship:
- Stelar, Via Enrico Fermi, 4, 27035 Mede PV, Italy.
- Extra Byte, Piazza Mazzini 80, 20022 - Castano Primo (Milano), Italy.

15 Aug 2021 PhD and postdoc in Solution methodologies for binary quadratic optimization problems

Toggle description

Supervisors: Leandro Coelho (Université Laval) and Franklin Djeumou Fomeni (Université du
Québec à Montréal)

Start date: 1 January 2022

Duration: 4 years

Summary of the project:
Binary Quadratic Optimization (BQO) is a special class of discrete optimization, which amounts to
optimizing a quadratic objective function of binary decision variables subject to a set of linear
constraints. Some applications of BQO include portfolio optimization, projects selection, sustainable
development, facilities location and vehicle routing problems. BQO problems are known to be very
challenging to solve due to the non-linear nature of their objective functions and the discrete nature of
their decision variables. Indeed, even simple special cases of BQO, such as the quadratic knapsack
problem, the quadratic assignment problem, etc., are known to be strongly NP-hard. The aim of this
research project is to develop a host of innovating solution methodologies for solving BQO problems.
These methodologies will include heuristic, meta-heuristics and exact algorithms. Some of the
techniques to be used include, but not limited to, dynamic programming, cutting planes, polyhedral
studies, branch-and-cut and decision diagram.
We invite applications from highly motivated candidates for full-time PhD or Postdoc positions to
develop advanced methodologies for solving BQO problems and use them for some applications in
finance, in energy and in transportation.

Work environment:
The successful candidates will be jointly supervised by Leandro Coelho (professor at Université Laval
in Quebec City) and Franklin Djeumou Fomeni (professor at Université du Québec à Montréal,
UQAM, Montreal). They will also have the opportunity to become members of both GERAD
( and CIRRELT (

Masters in Operations Research or equivalent
Knowledge of optimization methods (e.g.: heuristics, linear programming)
Programming skill: C/C++ (preferred) or Python/Matlab

A financial support of up to 22 000$ per year for PhD. For postdoc, it will be comensurate with
