The University of Southern California, one of the nation’s top universities, invites applications for two tenure-track positions in the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the Viterbi School of Engineering. Applications for all ranks (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor) will be considered. Exceptionally well qualified candidates for the rank of Professor will be considered for appointment as the Epstein Family Chair, an endowed faculty position. Applications from transformative and interdisciplinary scholars are especially encouraged. Transformative scholars are distinguished individuals whose accomplishments are transforming the disciplinary landscape.
This announcement is targeted toward growth in areas of computationally-based systems modeling and analysis, with an emphasis on areas of current and increasing importance to the ISE research community such as Healthcare Engineering and Systems Engineering (e.g., informatics and/or analytics). Senior candidates in the areas of energy and the environment, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing systems are also encouraged to apply. The applicant’s research should be grounded in general-purpose systems modeling methodologies.
We seek individuals who can provide strong, dynamic, and innovative leadership to advance excellence in research, innovation, teaching, and service to the professional community. An earned doctorate in a field closely related to Industrial and Systems Engineering is required. In addition, the position calls for energetic individuals who will participate in the university’s research enterprise and engage in classroom teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Successful candidates will establish a strong, externally funded, research program of national prominence while contributing to the core teaching mission of the ISE department.
Positions are available starting August 16, 2013. Candidates should apply via the Viterbi faculty application website: viterbi.usc.edu/facultyapplications/. Applications should include: a cover letter; curriculum vitae detailing educational background, research accomplishments and work experience; a one-page statement of current and future research; and names of a least four professional references. In order to receive full consideration, all materials should be received by December 17, 2012, but earlier application is encouraged. All applications will be held in the strictest confidence. Interested individuals are welcome to contact Professor Julie Higle, Chair of the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (firstname.lastname@example.org or 213.740.6785).
