Associate / Full Professor in Operations Research

Tilburg Univeristy | The Netherlands

Classification: Control Theory and Optimization

We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague who has a PhD degree in Operations Research or a related field, has excellent research qualities, as shown by a publication record in leading journals in Operations Research and/or related fields, and has an excellent track record in teaching. The position will be embedded in the Department of Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR). The department EOR has three main research themes in OR, namely Deterministic OR, Stochastic OR and Game Theory. The OR research group is also active in applied projects, notably through the Zero Hunger Lab, which provides optimization and data science support to NGO’s and the United Nations. Members of the OR research group have won the prestigious INFORMS Edelman Award for applied OR on two separate occasions. In addition, the OR group performs more theoretical research, including the areas of mathematical optimization (both deterministic and stochastic, discrete and continuous), quantitative logistics, and cooperative game theory. The group has a good track record of acquiring funding for this theoretical work though funding agencies, both at the Dutch and EU levels. We welcome all qualified applicants whose core interests align with those of the OR research group, but also seek to expand the expertise of our group in (the intersection of) Machine Learning and Optimization.
