National ICT Australia (NICTA) is Australia's Information and Communications Technology Research Centre of Excellence. NICTA is offering scholarships for exceptional PhD students working in the priority area of Optimisation at a number of Victorian universities. NICTA offers both full and top-up scholarships on top of base scholarships at Victorian Universities.
The optimisation research group at NICTA VRL, led by Professor Pascal Van Hentenryck, at the University of Melbourne, is recognised as a world-class team with pioneering contributions in fields such as constraint programming, hybrid optimisation, and planning. The group currently offers attractive PhD scholarships for high-calibre students interested in contributing to their research effort. The group focuses on grand challenges in disaster management, future energy systems, and multi-modal supply chains. Fundamental and applied research is conducted in continuous and discrete optimisation, decision making under uncertainty, simulation and 3D-visualisation, and algorithmic decision theory. Optimisation and decision-support platforms are being developed that will bring unprecedented support for decision making in complex environments.
