01 Apr 2017 Postdoc position in Sustainable Urban Transportation Planning

Toggle description

We currently invite applications for a postdoc position in Sustainable Urban Transportation Planning at Concordia University - CIRRELT (Montreal, Canada).

Supervisor
Ivan Contreras and Gilbert Laporte

Program description
Urban transportation concerns the movement of both freight and people in urban areas and involves different stakeholders. The considerable urban population growth over the last decades, together with the rise of e-commerce, and the increased attention to sustainability poses important challenges for the planning of urban transportation systems, particularly in the freight transport sector. The main goal of this research proposal is to study strategic optimization models in urban freight transportation that integrate facility location, capacity planning, fleet composition, and vehicle routing decisions. In particular, it will focus on the design of two-level urban freight transportation networks involving urban consolidation centers and cross-dock satellites. Mathematical models will be developed to analyze the impact of location, capacity selection, link activation, and routing decisions on pollution when these are taken into account in the design of urban freight transportation networks. Approximate and exact solution algorithms will also be developed to efficiently solve these problems.

Academic qualifications required
Phd in Operations Research, Industrial Engineering, Transportation, or related fields with experience in mathematical modeling and in the development of decomposition methods for large-scale optimization.
Advanced knowledge in commercial optimization solvers (CPLEX or GUROBI) and programming skills in C/C++ or Java are required.
Knowledge in urban transportation planning is desirable.

Eligibility requirements
Applicants must not currently hold a postdoctoral appointment at Concordia
Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered
Applicants must adhere to the postdoctoral fellow eligibility criteria outlined in Concordia University’s Postdoctoral Policy

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.

20 Mar 2017 PhD position in optimisation of local production chains

Toggle description

We are looking for a strong, motivated PhD candidate with a background
in mathematics and/or computer science for a PhD scholarships in the
field of optimization of local production chains at BTU in Cottbus, Germany.


*The Project*

The GRS Cluster "Local Production by Smart Value Chains" is funded by
the BTU and involves the Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht. Within this
project cluster five scholars work together on current topics in the
field of production and materials engineering, one of them with
special focus on mathematical questions. From a technological point
of view, the cluster focuses on combining classic production processes
of mass production with locally acting manufacturing processes. This
combination opens the possibility for individualizing components and
for localizing production near the end customers, but also for
repairing and maintaining components with minimal cost. The
mathematical research of the cluster aims at optimizing production
steps in local production facilities. In particular, this involves the
design of fast approximation algorithms for special constrained path
and network flow problems.


*Background*

The Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg
supports the thematic cluster “Local Production by Smart Value Chains”
as part of the BTU Graduate Research School (GRS). Successful
applicants are expected to begin their research as soon as possible
with a scholarship for three years. Cottbus is a city offering
various benefits such as inexpensive housing and cost of living as
well as close vicinity to Berlin, Dresden and the recreation and lake
district area "Spreewald". The basic scholarship is 1400 Euros per
month. The GRS will also offer additional support for doctoral
students with children. Scholarship holders will have access to
additional funding of the GRS for their doctoral research
(e.g. mobility grants etc.).


*Requirements*

You have obtained a university degree (Master’s or equivalent) in
mathematics, techno-mathematics or computer science (with strong
background in mathematics or operations research) with very good
success. You have strong basic knowledge in discrete optimization and
strive to further develop your expertise towards a PhD degree. You
are communicative and a team player. You are fluent in English, both
written and spoken, and preferably have at least basic knowledge of
the German language.
