The Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at Virginia Tech invites applications for multiple tenured/tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, effective August 2021. We seek outstanding candidates for two positions: Stochastic Operations Research (with a focus on health systems and policy, healthcare analytics, healthcare operations, and/or medical decision making) and Intelligent Manufacturing (with a focus on digital manufacturing, Industrial Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, and/or automation/robotics).

The ISE Department has 36 full-time instructional faculty, 30 of whom are tenured/tenure-track. Four are recent early investigator recipients, and numerous other faculty have received international or national recognition. Academic programs and research in the department encompass Human Factors and Ergonomics, Manufacturing, Management and Systems Engineering, and Operations Research. Candidates will thus have the opportunity to work with a broad range of departmental faculty, as well as with faculty in many other colleges, centers, and institutes at Virginia Tech.

The undergraduate and graduate ISE programs are currently ranked fourth and sixth, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report. Additional information is available at:
