We are looking for a motivated person with a can-do attitude who is passionate about industry-oriented problem-solving by using various analytics methods. The ideal candidate has documented skills to solve difficult real-world problems using different types of analytics approaches, such as descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analytics. Also the ability to develop analytical methods further is appreciated. We expect candidates to have strong skills in programming and mathematics. We value evidence of successful project work and international research collaboration. Documented evidence of teaching excellence and experience in the acquisition of competitive external funding (e.g. Business Finland, Academy of Finland, EU) are considered an advantage. Furthermore, we are looking for candidates with strong skills in research communication and dissemination (offline and online). Finnish skills are an advantage. We are looking for a person capable of teamwork in a multi-disciplinary environment.
The post-doctoral researcher is required to have a doctoral degree in a field relevant to the position, such as business analytics, operation research, applied mathematics, or computer science, and the ability for independent scientific work, the ability to work with different industrial and societal stakeholders, and a solid publication record in international academic journals.
