PhD Positions in Discrete Optimization and Data Analysis at King’s College London

Two PhD positions are available:


– A PhD studentship on “Optimization Models and Algorithms for Resource Allocation Problems with Machine Learning Predictions” is currently available to be funded by the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences at King’s College London: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/informatics/postgraduate/research-degrees.
 
– A PhD studentship on “Data-Driven and Explainable Discrete Optimization for Effective Transportation in Healthcare” is currently available to be funded by the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence: https://safeandtrustedai.org/project/data-driven-and-explainable-discrete-optimization-for-effective-transportation-in-healthcare/“.
 
Successful applicants are expected to: (i) have obtained or be close to obtaining an M.Sc. degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics or other relevant discipline, (ii) demonstrate their interest and skills on algorithms and data science (analytical thinking with mathematical rigor will be needed), (iii) have reasonable programming skills (Python coding will be needed), and (iv) have good communication skills in English. Prior experience on integer programming and approximation / online algorithms should be particularly useful.
 
Candidates interested in these positions are invited to contact me with their CV and a brief statement of interest.
 
Kind regards,
Dimitris
