The School of Mathematics wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Operational Research (first permanent position covering research, teaching and service responsibilities) to start on 1 September 2023 or later by agreement. Applicants with significant experience and a suitably strong record of achievement may be appointed to a Readership.
The Optimization and Operational Research Group in the School is an international leader in the mathematical and computing aspects of optimization and operational research as well as contemporary industrial applications of optimization. We have world-leading expertise in the solution of large sparse linear and quadratic problems by two of the core technologies in optimization – the simplex method and interior point methods. We also have a strong and growing presence in the mathematics of energy systems. Further interests include nonlinear and global optimization, discrete optimization, decomposition methods, parallel computing, stochastic optimization, simulation and stochastic areas of operational research. The group members collaborate with several research groups in the UK and overseas, and are actively engaged in collaborations with industry and government. We host the world-leading open source optimization software HiGHS (https://highs.dev) as well as an Operational Research Consultancy Unit that provides bespoke services and support for projects with external partners.
We are looking for ambitious researchers to enhance or complement these strengths, who are self-starting, and have a keen interest in operational research as part of the scientific process of figuring out how the modern world works. We are seeking candidates with a track record of high-quality research in areas relating to modern applications of operational research in areas such as, but not limited to, energy, healthcare, transportation, public and service sectors. Candidates are expected to have demonstrated ability to engage with industry and/or multidisciplinary partners
