  • Fluency in spoken and written English.

Scientific Profile:

The preferred candidate will have:

  • Strong background in computer science, multiobjective optimization and metaheuristics.

  • Good knowledge about one or more of the following topics (all of them within evolutionary multi-objective optimization): performance indicators, large-scale problems, parallelism, development of new algorithms.

  • Good programming skills in C/C++. Knowledge of parallel architectures (e.g., implementations in GPUs) is a plus.

Application and Selection Process

Formal Requirements:

The selected candidate must have applied before the application deadline online at the webpage http://www.bcamath.org/en/research/job

The candidates that do not fulfil the mandatory requirements will not be evaluated with respect to their scientific profile.


Required documents: 

  • CV

  • Letter of interest

  • 2 recommendation letters

  • Statement of past and proposed future research (2-3 pages)


Based on the provided application documents of each candidate, the evaluation committee will evaluate qualitatively: the adaption of the previous training and career to the profile offered, the recommendation letters, the main results achieved (papers, proceedings, etc.), the statement of past and proposed future research and other merits; taking in account the alignment of these items to the topic offered.


Summer 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The BCAM postdoctoral contract will start when the selected candidate has finished the PhD, i.e. after dissertation defence.
