Research Associate (Fixed-Term Role)

University of Bath - School of Management

The School of Management seeks to recruit a Research Associate for an industrially funded research project.

The project aims to develop novel logistics information systems and new types of operations that can enable logistics and warehousing organisations to adapt to (abnormal) changes in the operation environment. You will work as part of a research team to conduct research towards project objectives, measure and evaluate the effectiveness of the developed solutions in a real environment and potentially extend resulting software prototypes into applications or methods to be used within actual operations.

You will have a PhD (or be close to obtaining one) in operations management/research, information systems or related scientific discipline.

Applications from candidates with an interest in logistics and warehouse management, and with experience on simulation and modelling approaches are particularly encouraged. Prior experience with working with industrial partners and with preparing research publications for the top international journals is highly desirable, and an interest in taking research outputs beyond demonstration systems to working applications/methods for use in industry is preferrable.

This research project is in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and a large Chinese supply chain management company. You will have the opportunity to work with collaborators from both organisations and visit Cambridge and China if required.

This is a fixed-term role until 19 March 2019.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact the Principal Investigator, Dr Vaggelis Giannikas at
