Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in applications including, but not limited to: business analytics, energy systems and the environment, the sharing economy and digital marketplaces, healthcare delivery and medical decision making, smart transportation and connected cities, logistics, supply chains and manufacturing operations, data-driven decision making, and data science.

    Applicants should hold or expect to complete by fall 2020 a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Operations Management, or a related discipline and have demonstrated the potential to conduct a vigorous and significant research program as evidenced by their publication record and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. The candidate's expertise and documented research activities must demonstrate a strong potential to enhance both the department's research and teaching missions. Successful candidates are expected to build strong, externally funded, highly visible research programs and to become recognized leaders in their field. Information on current research activities of department faculty can be found at isye.umn.edu/faculty/. The ability to teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels to a diverse group of students is required.

    The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering is the newest department within the College of Science and Engineering, a highly interdisciplinary college of engineering, physical sciences, and mathematics.
