A postdoctoral position is currently available in the Process Systems Engineering Laboratory at 
MIT. The project involves developing models, theory and algorithms for a large-scale, industrial 
operational optimization problem under uncertainty. The  project is sponsored by a major 
international corporation and the candidate's responsibilities will include frequent interaction with 
and reporting to the sponsor.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering (or related area) with expertise in 
mathematical programming, particularly mixed-integer, nonconvex and stochastic programming. 
Interested applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae and a list of at least three referees
