The University at Buffalo (UB), State University of New York, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has recently started an ambitious faculty hiring campaign. The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) is very pleased to announce that it is now seeking candidates for multiple tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor.
Successful faculty candidates will hold a Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering or a closely related field and have a strong record of research and teaching. Individuals with expertise in operations research, production and service systems, and human factors engineering in domains such as defense and cyber security, disaster management, artificial intelligence, big data analytics, health systems, transportation and logistics, advanced manufacturing, and sustainable manufacturing are encouraged to apply.
Our faculty are expected to operate effectively in a diverse community of students and faculty, be team oriented and share our vision of helping all constituents reach their full potential. Diversity and inclusion are core values of our university culture, and we strongly encourage individuals of under-represented minority status to apply. UB has made significant efforts to promote diversity and create an inclusive supportive work and educational environment for its workforce and students. The UB SEAS Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) initiative provides educational and programmatic events and resources to support inclusion among engineering faculty, staff, and students.
UB ISE is ranked among the top 25 ISE graduate programs in the U.S. We offer B.S., M.S., M.E., Ph.D. degrees, with concentrations in operations research, human factors, production systems or engineering management. We are known for our strong focus on graduate research and education, having over 300 graduate students and approximately 150 undergraduates. UB has an extraordinary number of research resources that are available to its faculty to support and augment research programs. UB ISE faculty lead or are core members of several key university research centers such as the Center of Excellence in Sustainable Manufacturing and Robotic Technology (SMART), the Center of Excellence in Global Health Equity, the Center for Multisource Information Fusion, Center for Computational Research and the Stephen Still Institute for Sustainable Transportation and Logistics. We frequently collaborate with faculty of UB’s Jacob School of Medicine, School of Architecture and Planning, College of Arts and Sciences, as well as many of the eight other engineering departments within SEAS.
UB faculty enjoy a high quality of life. Buffalo is a city with a rapidly growing economy, eclectic neighborhoods, world-class art galleries and museums, a vibrant theater and music community, the Lake Erie waterfront, a city-wide system of parks designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and major and minor league sports teams. The awe-inspiring Niagara Falls is just 20 minutes away. The department is located on the UB North Campus in suburban Amherst, an area that combines outstanding public schools and services with a surprisingly low cost-of-living.
Review of applications will begin immediately but applications will be received until the positions are filled. We request that applications be submitted by November 30, 2021.
