Interesting Links - Konstantinos I. Stouras

Here is a list of websites that I find interesting and relevant, in Operations Management (OM), as well as some other links of general interest.

Operations Academic Job Market

The current purpose of this website is to make the search for an academic job in Operations more transparent and efficient, by showing the profiles of candidates who are looking for a job, and posting related job openings. We also conduct an Annual Operations Job Market Survey about the profiles of recently hired Operations researchers, as well as the faculty positions they joined into, to better understand the current dynamics and needs of our field. Here are some preliminary insights generated from this Job Market Survey.

PhD from a Business School

School of Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences (SEMFE), NTUA, Greece

The official webpage of SEMFE at National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), where I did my undergrad studies. To graduate from this 5-year undergraduate program you need to pass 64 courses, and to complete and successfully defend a research thesis either majoring in "Applied Mathematics" or in "Applied Physics".

This is a webpage for Alumni of SEMFE NTUA that I founded in January 2014 and I am co-managing in my free time. Given the moments of crisis that Greece is facing, the initial purpose for the development of such a website was to find and unite all SEMFE Alumni and support each other for advice for graduate studies and PhD Programs, as well as getting insights for applying to industry. Currently, there are more than 300 SEMFE Alumni who have subscribed their details into our List of SEMFE Alumni, as shown in the map below (updated in real-time).
