This project deals with inviting in-store customers for delivering parcels, ordered by on-line customers, on their way home. The remaining parcels must be delivered by the company's fleet of professional drivers, whose route is optimized as a vehicle routing problem. This allows reducing environmental impacts and urban congestion. The project concerns the development of models and tools for solving this problem, which turns out to be a very challenging stochastic combinatorial optimization problem.

Toggle description

TU Eindhoven is offering a 2-year postdoc position for a talented and motivated researcher with a strong interest in algorithms and complexity. The research is supported by ERC Starting grant "Rigorous Search Space Reduction" and is aimed at advancing the theory of algorithmic preprocessing. The project investigates questions such as: why does preprocessing lead to such large speedups for some NP-hard problems? How does a preprocessing algorithm reduce the search space of the follow-up algorithm? Which aspects of a problem input make it amenable to preprocessing? How can new preprocessing algorithms be developed that deliver speedups of several orders of magnitude? These questions are tackled using the framework of parameterized complexity and kernelization, and are asked for a diverse set of NP-hard problems concerning graphs, logic, and constraint satisfaction.

The position is supervised by dr. Bart M. P. Jansen ( )
