Job Description

The Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division at Argonne National Laboratory invites outstanding candidates to apply for multiple postdoctoral positions in the areas of optimization, applied mathematics, statistics, and scientific computing. Several of these positions are connected with the recently awarded DOE project “MACSER: Multifaceted Mathematics for Rare, High Impact Events in Complex Energy and Environment Systems”. The positions will address software/algorithm development and/or theory in areas of interest to the applied mathematics and numerical software group.

Position Requirements

Nonlinear optimization, mixed-integer (linear/nonlinear) optimization, stochastic/robust optimization, and dynamic programming. Bilevel programming and mathematical programming with equilibrium constraints. Data analysis, applied statistics, sampling, and spectral estimation. Parallel algorithms for scientific and high-performance computing. Also required is considerable knowledge in algorithms and/or software development for numerical optimization.

Good proficiency levels in scientific programming languages (e.g., C, C++) are also highly desired. Experience with Julia, parallel computing, large-scale computational science, energy systems and/or environmental applications is a plus.
