Faculty Position in the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Virginia Tech – Assistant Professor, Operations Research - Optimization

 

The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at Virginia Tech invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective August 2023. We seek outstanding candidates with strong methodological and theoretical skills in Operations Research - Optimization with expertise in areas such as nonlinear programming, continuous optimization, combinatorial optimization, global optimization, machine learning, game theory, algorithms, and complexity theory. 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 4th and 7th, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report.  Additional information is available at: www.ise.vt.edu.

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 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 is 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 and a demonstrated ability to work collaboratively, 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.
