We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow in mathematical programming to join an EPSRC advancing impact project. The project will be developed in collaboration with a leading industry partner from Germany and is driven by our vision in sustainable development.  We identified the research needs on responsive optimisation modelling tool to bring data advances into real-time decision-making on sustainability. Coupling data value chains and advanced sustainability optimisation has the potential to transform the end-users and sustainability decision-space towards data-informed decision-making.

The recruitment is a 6-month fixed-term position. Applicants must have a strong background in mathematical optimisation and be proficient in programming languages (e.g. Python) that support object oriented programming (OOP). Candidates with a background in Computer Sciences and Process Systems Engineering are particularly encouraged to apply.

You will be working in a friendly and vigorous research environments and collaborating with a cross-disciplinary team. Your research will focus on:

  1. To develop a spatial-temporal mathematical optimisation model under Python to include the resource and product vectors and technology processes across sectors, logistics and networks.
  2. To further configure the optimisation model to enable iterative user feedback and responsive optimisation informed by real-time data.
  3. To collaborate with our industry partner to couple the optimisation model with an existing  Java application, leading to an advanced open-source optimisation software, which can inform the decision making on sustainable system design.
