The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Virginia invites applications for an open rank, tenure-track/tenured faculty position in Systems Engineering. Candidates are expected to contribute to a methodological area, such as, but not limited to: modeling and simulation, optimization and decision analysis, automation and control, data analytics and machine learning, systems thinking, operations research, human factors, and/or and human technology interaction. Ideal candidates should have a broad perspective on systems engineering theory and methodology, and be interested in collaborative research activities that complement those of our faculty. Our faculty work on engineering complex systems that span domains including healthcare, commerce, transportation, defense, among others. Candidates will be expected to engage in funded research and to develop an externally funded research program. Duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and service to the department, university, and professional organizations. Candidates must possess an earned doctorate in Systems Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Data Science, or a related discipline, or have one in hand by appointment start date. Candidates must possess a demonstrated record of academic scholarship, as appropriate to the candidate's rank, and a commitment to teaching excellence. Candidates from non-traditional academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply including veterans, industry professionals, or governmental laboratory researchers/scientists.

Candidates that seek to address complex, systems-oriented research problems will benefit from the cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary research opportunities available at UVA. For example, many departmental faculty are members of the Link Lab ( http://linklab.virginia.edu ), UVA's world-class center of excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) with faculty from across the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Many also particulate in pan-university institutes like the Brain Institute ( https://braininstitute.virginia.edu ), Environmental Resilience Institute ( https://eri.virginia.edu ), and the newly founded School of Data Science ( https://datascience.virginia.edu ), bringing engineering perspectives to these broader initiatives across UVA. Joint appointment with other departments are common and encouraged within the School of Engineering and Applied Science at UVA.

The selected candidate will be required to complete a background check at time of offer per University Policy. This position will also require an Education Verification (FSAKA).
