(sources: A. Auger, J.F. Bonnans)

Summary: We are looking for excellent and motivated candidates for a
PhD and a postdoc position in the domain of stochastic numerical
optimization. The topic is fairly open and ranges from theoretical
aspects, benchmarking to algorithm design. We encourage particularly
candidates with a strong background in mathematics who are however not
averse to numerical simulations. But we will also consider
applications with other profiles.

To apply send an email with title: ``Application for PhD thesis /
Postdoc in
Stochastic Numerical Black-Box Optimization'' to Anne Auger
(anne.auger_at_inria.fr) and
Nikolaus Hansen (nikolaus.hansen_at_inria.fr) containing: (i) a detailed CV
(ii) a motivation letter (iii) name and email address of referee(s).
