IERG seeks a candidate with a strong background in mathematical programming and other operations research methods, and a great interest in applying those methods in forest-based biomass supply chain management. The candidate has to have a Ph.D. degree in operations research, industrial engineering, or other related fields and a good knowledge of computer programming and supply chain modeling. The candidate must have demonstrated excellent research skills and the ability to communicate and collaborate with others efficiently.
This is a full-time position from April 1, 2017 to Sept. 30, 2017 with the possibility of extension. The successful candidate will assist in 1) developing models and decision support tools, 2) preparing grant proposals, 3) writing reports for funding agencies, 4) guiding graduate students, and 5) writing research papers for refereed journals. One of the main projects that the successful candidate will work on is the optimization of the operational level transportation and inventory management of a forest-based biomass supply chain. This project will be conducted in close collaboration with industry and a Ph.D. candidate at IERG. A decision support tool has to be delivered to our industrial collaborator for their daily operations.
