Internships, theses, optimization community

We collect in this page information about internship and theses proposals (in particular from the industrial side), but also references to websites, newsletters and other tools to be in contact with the optimization community and be informed about all the opportunities. We remind that students are encouraged to actively search for research projects, internships, PhD offers...

News from the optimization community

  • Groupe MODE de la SMAI, the optimization group in the French Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics : it produces an information newsletter Lettre MODE, which also deals with some PhD, internship and job offers.
  • ROADEF, the French Society for Operational Research, with a forum dealing also with PhD, internship and job offers.
  • Opt-Net, an electronic forum for the optimization community (international ; it includes PhD proposals).
  • GDR RO, mailing list of the CNRS research group on Operational Research.

Internships (and some theses)

Here below the first internship offers that we received for 2017/18.
Sometimes, if the offer is in French it means that knowledge of French is a requirement (not always).
