The research group ORSTAT of KU Leuven (Belgium) has a vacancy for three full-time PhD scholarships starting in September 2023, each for a period of four years.  Additionally, there is also a vacancy for a full-time PhD scholarship in the framework of the joint KU Leuven - SKEMA doctoral program in AI & OM, in collaboration with SKEMA Business School (France).

The researchers to be hired will work in the field of operations research (OR); this work should lead to a PhD degree.  The supervisors of the positions are prof. Roel Leus, prof. Jannik Matuschke, and prof. Hande Yaman (KU Leuven positions), and prof. Roel Leus and prof.
