Faculty Positions in The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering Virginia Tech
The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at Virginia Tech invites applications
for two tenure-track/tenured faculty positions effective August 2017, one at the rank of Assistant
Professor and one at any rank, with preference for a senior faculty member. For particularly well established Full Professor candidates with outstanding credentials, an endowed professorship is available.
We seek outstanding candidates in all areas of Operations Research. Candidates will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of research groups and faculty within the Department, College, and University, including those working in the areas of data analytics and decision sciences, health systems and technology, and intelligent infrastructure, among others. The ISE Department is comprised of 30 fulltime faculty with approximately 550 undergraduate students, 170 master’s students, and 90 doctoral students. The undergraduate and graduate ISE programs are currently ranked 5th and 9th, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report.
Candidates are expected to lead innovative and high-quality research, build a strong sponsored-research
program, develop and teach graduate and undergraduate courses, and advise and mentor graduate and
undergraduate students. Candidates for the senior position should have a record of achievement
commensurate with a senior faculty member, and are expected to provide organizational and research
leadership, mentor junior faculty, and build collaborative relationships, both within the Department and across the College of Engineering and University. The position requires a Ph.D. in industrial and systems engineering, operations research, or a closely related field. Virginia Tech is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
