Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in Operations Research at the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University to start in Summer 2020. This will be a one-year appointment, with the possibility of a one-year extension.
The successful candidate will be working closely with Dr. Fatma K?l?nç-Karzan on an on-going NSF-funded research project regarding low-complexity relaxations for nonconvex optimization problems with conic structure. Such problems are frequently used in extracting useful information from high-dimensional data, and also are critical components of operational problems in many fields facing uncertainty. This research aims to develop novel models and analysis to address key trade-offs on relaxation quality and computational tractability on a diverse set of problems. The final objective is then to facilitate the analysis and design of efficient and scalable algorithms for these problems.
