Disclaimer: I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question.
I am looking for a postdoc position in operations research in the US. So far, I have found three ways:
- INFORMS community (or some other similar websites) includes some positions but it does not cover the majority of them.
- Some of the positions are advertised on the university's website, some positions are posted on the department's website, some are posted on LinkedIn, etc. It is confusing and difficult to find the postings.
- Send a direct email to professors with similar research interests. This method is extensively time-consuming and a bit unethical to reject a professor when they show interest.
I was wondering what would be the most efficient strategy that you recommend to an operations researcher to find a post-doc (or even a professorship) position in the US. Please note that my research interests include: (i) healthcare and supply chain management, and (ii) applications of operations research and machine learning methods. However willing to work in other related areas.
