The positions are in operations research within the CIRRELT (www.cirrelt.ca) and the department of Operations and Decision Systems of the Faculty of Administration Sciences of Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada). All projects are related to logistics optimization and to distribution problems. Hence, a good understanding of vehicle routing problems and its variants, and of optimization and implementation skills is required. The positions are under the supervision of professors Jean-François Côté and/or Jacques Renaud and/or Leandro C. Coelho.
Full and partial funding is available and is commensurate with qualifications for up to 4 years. All accepted candidates are eligible to partial funding (http://www4.fsa.ulaval.ca/futurs-etudiants/bourses-et-aide-financiere/) and the supervisors will offer extra scholarships for excellent students.

A successful candidate has profound knowledge in (computational) mathematical optimization (in particular mixed integer programming) in theory and practice. Solid implementation skills are a must. The candidate will work on large-scale mathematical optimization problems arising in logistics and transportation networks. Collaborations with international partners is expected.
