I started hunting for jobs and I'm not sure what are good websites I should be keeping an eye on. I'm interested mainly in Europe.
Disclaimer: I work as an optimization specialist in a large utility company in Denmark.
- Look for "Data Scientist", "Data Engineer", "Optimization specialist", "Operations Research Specialist" or other variations. Examples can be see here and here.
- However, the problem is that many businesses do not know about optimization and how it can benefit them even if they are using it. Therefore try to find the optimization specialists in companies and reach out directly to find out where the best part to apply is. Of course this works best the clearer you know what company you want to work for.
- There are not many "pure" OR jobs going around. In most cases, it also include data analysis and "science", as well as software and tool development (i.e. putting your stuff into production). So if you have a "standard" OR degree, I would suggest for you to create competencies in those areas, apply for a "Data Scientist" position and then find your OR niche there.
The INFORMS Career Centre may be a good starting point
Good luck in your search!
If you are interested in PhD-level research jobs in Europe, you might regularly check EURAXES. In addition, mailing lists of different societies or groups are great for learning about new positions as well as upcoming CfPs, seminars, and workshops. One example is DMANET.
If you are thinking about working in the UK, indeed.co.uk might be useful for preliminary searching.
