POEMA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (2019-2022), offering 15 PhD positions. Its goal is to train scientists at the interplay of algebra, geometry and computer science for polynomial optimization problems and to foster scientific and technological advances, stimulating interdisciplinary and intersectoriality knowledge exchange between algebraists, geometers, computer scientists and industrial actors facing real-life optimization problems.

The proposed PhD projects are investigating the development of new algebraic and geometric methods combined with computer algebra techniques for global non-linear optimization problems and their applications, in particularly, in smarter cities challenges, urban traffic management, water network management, energy flow control, or environmental monitoring. Detailed descriptions of the projects can befound below.

The network partners are:

  • Inria, Sophia Antipolis, France, (Bernard Mourrain)
  • CNRS, LAAS, Toulouse France (Didier Henrion)
  • Sorbonne Université, Paris, France (Mohab Safey el Din)
  • NWO-I/CWI, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (Monique Laurent)
  • Univ. Tilburg, the Netherlands (Etienne de Klerk)
  • Univ. Konstanz, Germany (Markus Schweighofer)
  • Univ. degli Studi di Firenze, Italy (Giorgio Ottaviani)
  • Univ. of Birmingham, UK (Mikal Kocvara)
  • Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen, Germany (Michael Stingl)
  • Univ. of Tromsoe, Norway (Cordian Riener)
  • Artelys SA, Paris, France (Arnaud Renaud)

The associate partners are:

  • IBM Research, Ireland (Martin Mevissen)
  • NAG, UK (Mike Dewar)
  • RTE, France (Jean Maeght)

Submission Guidelines

Marie Sklodowska-Curie PhDs are paid a competitive gross salary of 3,270 €/month, adjusted for their host country, a Mobility Allowance of 600 €/month and, for researchers who have a family, a Family Allowance of 500 €/month. All amounts are subject to deductions and taxes. Family is defined as persons linked to the researcher by (i) marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the national legislation of the country of the beneficiary or of nationality of the researcher, or (iii) dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher; family status is determined at recruitment and does not evolve.

To apply for one of these PhD positions, the applicant should fulfill the following conditions:

  • Have — at the date of recruitment — a Master’s degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or Engineering (or any equivalent diploma).
  • Should have — at the date of recruitment —  less than 4 years of a research career, and not have a doctoral degree. The 4 years are measured from the date when they obtained the degree which would formally entitle them to embark on a PhD,  either in the country wherethe degree was obtained or in the country where the PhD is provided.
  • Trans-national mobility: The applicant — at the date of recruitment— should not have resided in the country where the research training takes place for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment, and not have carried out their main activity (work,studies, etc.) in that country. For refugees under the Geneva Convention(1951 Refugee Convention and the 1967 Protocol), the refugee procedure (i.e.before refugee status is conferred) will not be counted as ‘period of residence/activity in the country of the beneficiary’.
  • Be able to communicate fluently in English (speaking and writing). Oral interview with the prospective advisor may be required.

Note: A Master's degree (or equivalent) is not necessary at the time of the application, but will be required at the date of recruitment (in September or October).

To apply for one of these positions, submit at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=poema1922 a single pdf document containing:

  • a detailed CV including education, work experience, skills, dissertations, research interests, career objectives, and — if available at the date of submission —names and contact details of two referees, that can include the supervisor of the master thesis, willing to provide confidential letters of recommendation, a list of publications if any;
  • a letter of motivation regarding the position as well as the POEMA network;
  • a transcript of the master studies’ grades (including the overall grade and an explanation of the grading system) and the master’s thesis if available;
  • and indicate as TITLE your full name,  add 3 KEYWORDS,  andchose the TOPICS you are interested in (ALL, ESR1, ..., ESR15, see below).

Notice that it is possible to update the submitted document with new information before the DL.
