Text: UOL04378 31-Dec-2099 The Luxembourg Centre of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LCL), Department of Economics and Management of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to support a collaborative research project between the University of Luxembourg and a leading global industry partner. The project is funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). The selected candidate will work within the LCL ( https://lcl.uni.lu ) which is part of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Supply Chain And Logistics Excellence (SCALE) network ( https://scale.mit.edu/ ). The LCL is a hub for logistics and supply chain research and education and seeks to make an impact both in practice and in the academic community. Your Role... The research conducted by the postdoctoral researcher will be in the domain of air cargo . Air cargo operations have received great attention during the pandemic. Air cargo has always been characterized by very high daily flight hours in comparison to passenger operations. The superior equipment utilization comes with the downside of the requirement of well scheduled, punctual operations to avoid propagating delays. Schedule recovery may take place by accelerating or modifying turnaround operations - which requires an accurate prediction of turnaround time requirements before aircraft arrival to a station. The project’s objective is, thus, to develop a tool for predicting air cargo turnaround times. The industry partner provides real data and domain knowledge. The postdoctoral researcher works on developing suitable prediction that will be implemented by the industry partner in its IT systems. The successful candidate will therefore work closely both with researchers at the LCL and selected experts at the partner company. Some of the worktime is foreseen to be conducted at the industry partner’s premises. The postdoctoral researcher will be working under the supervision of Professor Anne Lange.
