We are looking for a Full Professor in a central area of Operations Research (OR).
The position will be embedded in the Department of Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR) in the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM) at Tilburg University.
The department EOR has three main research themes in OR, namely Deterministic OR, Stochastic OR and Game Theory. The OR research group is also active in applied projects, notably through the Zero Hunger Lab, which provides optimization and data science support to NGO’s and the United Nations. Members of the OR research group have won the prestigious INFORMS Edelman Award for applied OR on two separate occasions. In addition, the OR group performs more theoretical research, including the areas of mathematical optimization (both deterministic and stochastic, discrete and continuous), quantitative logistics, and cooperative game theory. The group has a good track record of acquiring funding for this theoretical work though funding agencies, both at the Dutch and EU level.
We welcome all qualified applicants whose core interests align with those of the OR research group, but also seek to expand the expertise of our group in the areas of Business Analytics and Data Science, in particular Machine Learning.
You will have the following main responsibilities and tasks:
The position comes with an attractive job package that features benefits including pension benefits, insurance discounts, ample vacation days, and end-of-year bonuses, to mention but a few.
The gross salary is largely determined by the Dutch labor agreement (CAO) for universities, namely scale Hgl 2 or Hgl 1 in the VSNU salary table: https://www.tiu.nu/VSNU-CAOENG.
