Interesting Opportunities

Here are a number of interesting opportunities in green O.R. and related areas that I came across recently through the listservs and other sources:

  1. Graduate Fellowships in Wind Energy funded by the National Science Foundation IGERT Program are available at the University of Iowa. Apply at They are part of the “Geoinformatics for Environmental and Energy Modeling and Prediction” program. According to the web site, Geoinformatics:
    • is the science of measuring, storing, managing, analyzing, and visualizing phenomena occurring on or near the earth’s surface
    • includes Geographic Information Science, spatial statistics, and high-performance computing
    • provides the methods and technology essential to addressing the environmental and energy-related issues of the 21st century
  2. The Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economics Systems Analysis (CEEESA) at Argonne National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Appointee. From the announcement:

    The applicant should have research experience in optimization. A Ph.D. in IE/OR or related discipline is required. Argonne offers very competitive salary and benefits. The appointment will be one year with a possible extension. Argonne will sponsor the cap-exempt H1B visa application if needed. Senior PhD students will be also considered for internships.

    See this page for the full announcement. It looks like a great opportunity. CEEESA is described briefly on this greenOR page and this one describing their GREET vehicle modeling system.

  3. IBM Smarter Cities, from the web site:

    Municipal leaders who run the complex network of diverse people, expected services and aging infrastructure are on a constant search for more efficient ways to analyze data, anticipate problems and coordinate resources in their cities.

    You can drill down in their solutions section to read about specific approaches to the various issues.

  4. Climate Knowledge Discovery Workshop @ SC11 Conference, Seattle, 13 November 2011
  5. Department of Energy Conference on Data Analysis, February 29-March 2, 2012 | Santa Fe, New Mexico | hosted by the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
