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.

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.
