The Research Centre for Optimisation at the School of Information Technology, Deakin University has one open vacancy in the area of discrete optimisation for a fully funded doctoral student. The research topic focuses on developing advanced solution techniques to applied multi-component combinatorial optimisation problems.
The candidate should have a Master degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Operations Research, Artificial Intelligence, Applied Mathematics, or a related field. Strong academic performance, programming and mathematical skills as well as a good level of written and oral English are essential. Experience with metaheuristic optimisation methods, mathematical/constraint programming and knowledge of hybrid and decomposition-based optimisation techniques is desirable.
This is a research scholarship available for both domestic and international candidates and worth of AU$ 27,596 per annum (tax exempt) to support living costs for up to 3 years. During the study period, doctoral students are also allowed to participate on a part-time basis in ongoing teaching activities to earn additional income.
