A Ph.D. position in Combinatorial Optimization is currently available at the Center of Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) of the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL).
The position is funded by the “Fonds Spéciaux de Recherche” (FRS) 2017 and is related to the research project “Optimizing over Unrooted Binary Trees”, which aims to investigate the combinatorial and the optimization aspects of a specific class of network design problems arising from computer science and several applications in life science.
The position involves research into the mathematical and computational aspects of such a class as well as developing optimization algorithms to solve practical instances of such problems. The ideal candidate should have a background in computer science or applied mathematics. We especially welcome applicants with a solid background and interest in combinatorial optimization and computational complexity.
The position is expected to start in Fall 2017, but it will remain open until an appropriate candidate is found.
For general enquiries about the position as well as instructions about how to apply, please contact Prof. Daniele Catanzaro via email by mentioning in the Subject “Open PhD position in Combinatorial Optimization”.
