Industrial and Management Systems Engineering

The Department of Industrial and Management Systems Engineering (IMSE) at the University of South Florida (USF) invites applications for tenure-track/tenured faculty position(s) at Assistant/Associate Professor levels starting in August 2022.

Research and educational interests of the applicants should intersect with the departmental core methodological research thrusts in data analytics and optimization with applications in smart city/urban infrastructure (including cybersecurity, healthcare systems, energy, water, transportation, and public health), and advanced manufacturing including bio-manufacturing. Minimum qualifications include: 1) a doctoral degree in industrial engineering or a related field from an accredited institution, 2) a strong record of publications in top tier peer reviewed journals and, if seeking an associate rank, a high citation h-index, 3) significant potential (or demonstrated experience) for conducting research, as principal investigator, funded by grants and contracts from peer reviewed federal agencies and competitive state and private sources, 4) potential/demonstrated ability to form multi-level, interdisciplinary research collaborations, 5) for the associate level, a strong record of successfully funding, mentoring, and graduating doctoral students, and 6) demonstrated experience/potential for developing and teaching undergraduate and graduate level courses, particularly Ph.D. level courses, for the associate level. Preferred qualifications include expertise in one or more areas including data mining and machine learning, computing architecture, decision making through stochastic optimization, and advanced manufacturing.

Successful candidates will be expected to have a strong credential/potential for externally and competitively funded interdisciplinary research program and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. Candidates are expected to have demonstrated leadership and communication skills, be able to work effectively in teams, integrate research, education and service activities, and be actively engaged in leadership in professional societies. Candidates must be committed to diversity among students, faculty and staff.
