Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Process Systems Engineering Laboratory at MIT. The project concerns optimal design and operation of energy management systems under uncertainty. The project is sponsored by a major international corporation and the candidates’ responsibilities will include frequent interaction with and reporting to the sponsor.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering (or related discipline) with expertise in energy and process systems modeling; mathematical programming, particularly mixed-integer nonlinear programming, global optimization and stochastic programming; GAMS and c++ programming.

Interested applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae and a list of at least three referees to:
