3D fitting optimisation



  • Algorithm and software development in mathematical optimisation, computational geometry and machine learning, supporting a cutting-edge university-industry research partnership.
  • Fixed term position for 1 year - ANU Officer 7 (Research) - salary from $86,723/year, plus 17% superannuation.
  • Starting as soon as possible.

We are seeking a skilled algorithm and software developer to contribute to delivering the mathematical optimisation and machine learning software components of a novel system being built in collaboration with colleagues from the Research School of Physics and Engineering as part of an applied research project together with our industry partner. The role also supports research and development.

The problem we seek to solve is a 3-dimensional fitting problem (placing a shape inside a free space, such that the size and "quality" of the placement is as good as we can make it). It is complicated by the facts that the free space is highly non-convex, that the shape has parameters beyond placement that can be varied, within bounds, to produce a bigger or better fit, and that some aspects of the quality of a fit are difficult to capture in a precise objective function.
