Post-doc position

In the context of the international ANR project INDEX (INcremental Design of EXperiments), I3S invites applications for full-time post-doc positions, starting between Oct 1, 2019 and Jan. 15, 2020 (negotiable).
Candidates will have opportunities for international collaboration/interaction with other partners of the INDEX project.
The project studies efficient incremental solutions to combinatorial optimization problems occurring in design of computer experiments. The objective is to propose an ordered design (a sequence of runs) which is nearly optimal (for the corresponding size) when stopped at any point, while satisfying a set of intrinsic user-defined constraints.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in applied mathematics or theoretical computer science, with a strong background in probability and statistics, approximation and complexity theory, or discrete optimization. Knowledge in functional analysis and measure theory will be particularly appreciated.
All applications should include
- a cover letter describing the interest in the position,
- a detailed CV,
- two or more letters of recommendation.

Potential applicants should contact Luc Pronzato (, Enrico Formenti ( or Maria João Rendas (
