Faculty Position in the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
Virginia Tech – Assistant Professor, Systems Engineering
 
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 for a focus on Systems Engineering, with areas of interest including, but not limited to, systems engineering theory, artificial intelligence intersections with systems engineering, digital engineering and model-based systems engineering, engineering design, engineering management, complexity sciences, socio-technical systems, and systems architecting and modeling. Application domain areas of interest include, but are not limited to, defense and aerospace systems, cyber-physical systems, healthcare systems, cybersecurity, transportation, public policy, energy, and environment. 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 others have received international or national recognition. Academic programs and research in the department encompass Management and Systems Engineering, Human Factors and Ergonomics, Manufacturing, 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.

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, 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.
