Description

The Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University is seeking applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar to work on stochastic optimization and equilibrium problems (particularly stochastic generalized equations). The research team has ongoing research in the area of stochastic, risk-averse, and distributed optimization with application interests in power systems, and markets, and potentially to machine learning. The project will involve the analysis and solution of a broad class of problems with a particular accent on competition and uncertainty. We are seeking candidates with a strong record in optimization theory and algorithms with a particular interest in the analysis of problems complicated by the presence of nonsmoothness and uncertainty.Penn State’s College of Engineering strives to build a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for students, staff, and faculty. We rely on the expertise, sensitivity and commitment of an inclusive faculty to enhance diversity, seek equity, and create a welcoming environment within our community. We are committed to nurturing a learning and working environment that respects differences in culture, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation. In welcoming every candidate, we strive to meet the needs of professional families by actively assisting with partner-placement needs. We are inspiring change and impacting tomorrow. Applications should include the following: a cover letter; full curriculum vitae; a brief statement of research interests; evidence of excellence in research; three references; and three papers (either published or under review). Applications will be reviewed upon receipt and will be accepted until the position is filled. Employment will require successful completion of background checks in accordance with University policies.
