We are inviting Post Doctoral Research Associates who can work in the interface of operations and data science. The associate will work on projects such as warehousing operations, last-mile delivery. Today, data from various sources are available in abundance: sensor and tracking data (IoT),demand, traffic and weather forecasts, etc. It, however, remains largely unclear how this data can be used effectively to improve operations. Consequently, the main goal is to develop data-driven optimization techniques to improve operational efficiency while reducing costs, increasing customer satisfaction, and lowering the ecological impact.
