PhD Student in the research project 'Mixed-Integer Non-Linear Optimisation: Algorithms and Applications' (MINOA)

The research project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Innovative Training Network MINOA funded under the Horizon 2020 programme. The MINOA ITN is an interdisciplinary research and training network consisting of 11 academic partners and six industrial partners in France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. The job is a full-time PhD position (Early Stage Researcher) in the field of Mathematical Optimization. A special focus is on the development and analysis of algorithms for polynomial optimization problems. These are non-linear optimization problems, involving polynomial constraints and variables which can be binary, continuous, or non-commutative. Such problems arise in many areas in operations research, discrete optimization and quantum information. The objective is to design new methods and algorithms using combinatorial and algebraic techniques combined with linear and semidefinite optimization.
