Dear CAST Community,

There is one immediate postdoctoral opening in the research group of Prof. Alexander Dowling in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame.

This position broadly intersects optimization under uncertainty, machine learning, and uncertainty quantification with a focus on several molecular-to-system engineering applications in sustainable energy. Candidates are expected to a Ph.D. in engineering, statistics, mathematics, computer science, or a relatedĀ field. Demonstrated skills and experience in computer programming, large-scale numerical optimization, design of experiments, Bayesian optimization, applied probability, and/or uncertainty quantification are preferred. This position includes extensive opportunities to interact with two dynamic, multi-disciplinary research communities at Notre Dame: the Computational Molecular Science and Engineering Laboratory and the Center for Informatics and Computational Sciences ( The initial appointment is for one year, with funding in place for a mutually agreeable renewal for a second year.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, detailed curriculum vitae, two representative publications, and a list of references to Prof. Alexander Dowling ([log in to unmask]). All materials sent by August 31, 2019 will receive full consideration. Thereafter, applications will be considered until the position is filled. Please contact me (Prof. Dowling) with any questions, or stop by our posters at the FOPAM conference this week.

Best regards,
Alex Dowling
