Faculty Position in the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Virginia Tech – Assistant/Associate Professor, Stochastic Operations Research

 

The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at Virginia Tech invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, effective August 2023. We seek outstanding candidates for Stochastic Operations Research, with areas of interest including, but not limited to, energy and sustainability, finance, healthcare, public policy, statistical learning and data analytics, simulation, stochastic optimization, supply chain management, and transportation. We are seeking candidates motivated to contribute to a collegial, interdisciplinary community with a strong tradition of both fundamental and applied research, high-quality teaching, and mentoring.

The ISE Department has 33 tenured/tenure-track faculty, with an additional eight non-tenure-track instructional and research faculty. Six faculty are recent early investigator recipients, and numerous other faculty have received international or national recognition. Academic programs and research in the department encompass Human Factors and Ergonomics, Manufacturing, Management and Systems Engineering, and Operations Research. Candidates will thus have the opportunity to work with a broad range of departmental faculty, as well as with faculty in many other colleges, centers, and institutes at Virginia Tech. The department is home to approximately 600 undergraduate students, 100 master’s students, and 115 doctoral students. The undergraduate and graduate ISE programs are currently ranked fourth and seventh, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report.  Additional information is available at: www.ise.vt.edu.

Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university, committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Building on its motto of Ut Prosim (that I may serve), Virginia Tech is dedicated to InclusiveVT—serving in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. Virginia Tech actively seeks a broad spectrum of candidates to join our community in preparing leaders for the world. The College of Engineering undergraduate program ranks 16th, and the graduate program ranks 31st among all U.S. engineering schools (USN&WR). The mission of the College of Engineering is to educate and inspire our students to be critical thinkers, innovators and leaders.  Our core values are inclusiveness, excellence, integrity, perseverance, and stewardship. Virginia Tech’s main campus is located in Blacksburg, VA, in an area consistently ranked among the country’s best places to live.  In addition, our facilities in the Washington, D.C., area offer unique proximity to government and industry partners and are also expanding rapidly, with Virginia Tech's exciting new Innovation Campus in Alexandria, VA, slated to open in 2024.

Candidates are expected to lead innovative scholarship and research, develop and sustain an externally-funded research program, teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and serve the university and the profession.  The position requires a Ph.D. in industrial and systems engineering, operations research, or a closely related field. Successful candidates will have a record of academic accomplishments, a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively, a demonstrated potential to teach courses in probability and stochastic operations research at the undergraduate and graduate level, a commitment to interdisciplinary research, and a willingness to expand disciplinary boundaries to address complex technical and societal challenges. The successful candidate will be required to have a criminal conviction check.

Applicants must apply online at jobs.vt.edu (posting number 522058). Application materials include a cover letter, CV, three separate statements limited to three pages each ((i) teaching interests and philosophy, (ii) research interests, and (iii) contributions to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion), up to three relevant research publications, and contact information for at least three professional references. Review of applications will commence November 21, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
