I am seeking to hire a postdoctoral associate who will be located in
Cincinnati working with Proctor and Gamble (P&G) on planning, scheduling
and other process optimization problems.


P&G Postdoctoral Position


Dr Matthew Realff, of the School of Chemical and Biomolecular
Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, is seeking a postdoctoral
fellow with expertise in optimization, scheduling, planning and process
modeling.  The position is a liaison between Dr Realff and Proctor &
Gamble, and requires that the individual be located at the central
research facility in Cincinnati Ohio.  The main research element of the
position is in formulating and solving large scale optimization problems
in planning and scheduling of consumer goods and applying supply chain
concepts to P&G operations.  

Candidate must have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, Systems
Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Computer
Science or related field.  Strong written and oral skills are required
as selected candidate will need to effectively interact faculty and
industrial partners.  The ideal candidate will also have a background in
statistical modeling and a deep understanding of the impact of

(eg. Visual Basic and C++) and modeling packages (eg. XPRESS-MP, JMP,
Extend, etc.) would be beneficial.

The individual will help P&G by increasing their exposure to advanced
optimization tools and techniques, and will be responsible for
identifying and extracting core research questions that can be pursued
jointly between P&G and  Georgia Tech.  The salary will be approximately
$50,000 p.a. and is available for one year with the possibility of
