The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) is one of the six autonomous universities in Singapore. The university was established in 2009, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to advance knowledge and nurture technically grounded leaders and innovators to serve societal needs, with a focus on Design, through an integrated multi-disciplinary curriculum and multi-disciplinary research.

The Engineering Systems and Design (ESD) is one of the four academic pillars at SUTD that focuses on the study of large-scale complex systems such as the transportation system. We are looking for a research fellow to join a project on vehicle routing problems (VRPs). He/She is required to develop and implement an algorithm to solve a variant of the VRP and perform comparison studies on the results.

A candidate must have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or other Operations Research related fields. Strong programming skill is required and experience with vehicle routing problem optimization techniques (heuristics or exact methods) is an added advantage.

The application package should contain a cover letter that briefly describes the candidate’s background, a CV with specifics on academic qualifications, technical skills, and contact information of up to three referees. SUTD offers competitive salary and benefits that commensurate with the candidate’s qualification and experience.

Interested candidates please send your application to xingyin_wang@sutd.edu.sg. The application deadline is Feb 28, 2021.
