    Dear INFORMS colleagues,
    The School of Industrial Engineering and Management at Oklahoma State University is seeking to fill two positions for Fall 2022. One of them is advertised below. The other position is in the area of manufacturing and is in the OSU-Tulsa campus, where we recently launched a B.S. program in industrial engineering and management. We will advertise that position soon. Anyone interested in either of the two positions can contact me via email: I will also be available to meet in Anaheim.
