Post-Doctoral Position in Mine Planning (Santiago, Chile)
martes, 24 de septiembre de 2019

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research position at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (Santiago, Chile) to work on the development of optimization methods for large-scale project management and applications in strategic mine planning. Applicants with strong computational skills and an interest in optimization and natural resource management are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have obtained their Ph.D. no earlier than 2014.

This two-year position has a broad research mandate, with possible focus areas ranging from the methodological (general decomposition methods, cutting-planes, constraint programming, or others), to more applied computational work in mining with our many industrial partners. Though no previous experience in scheduling or mining is required, post-holders will be expected to dominate these fields during the course of the position and be able to work both independently, and as part of a multi-disciplinary team comprised of optimizers, mining engineers, computer scientists, programmers, and others.

The position comes with the opportunity to develop a research or professional career in a high-impact industry, work with real data and ongoing mining projects throughout the world, develop large-scale optimization technologies in the cloud, and be part of an international network of research and industrial collaborators in the United States and Australia. Willingness to travel during the post-doc position is a plus.

The post is available from October 1st, 2019, or a mutually agreed date. Based in Santiago, Chile, at the Adolfo Ibáñez University Peñalolen Campus, the position has a starting salary of USD $40,000 before taxes.

Please enclose with your application your CV, a research statement, and three references to which recommendation letters can be solicited. The position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
