    FACULTY POSITIONS IN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH

    The Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez has great pleasure in inviting applicants for two open rank faculty positions in industrial engineering and operations research.

    The Faculty of Engineering and Sciences (FES) of Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI)

    UAI is a prestigious private university in Chile. Founded as a business school in 1953, in 1988, it started operating as a university. At present, it has over 12,000 students in 8 different schools located on two campuses: one in Santiago, the capital city of Chile, and the other in the coastal city of Viña del Mar.

    The FES is one of the leading schools of engineering in Chile, and it has experienced rapid growth over the last ten years. It has about 4,000 students and more than 100 full-time faculty. The FES offers 7 undergraduate engineering degrees, in addition to its M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. The FES brings together an open-minded community of scholars who combine fundamental and applied research to develop creative and innovative projects. These projects are expected not only to advance the frontier of knowledge, but also to contribute toward developing solutions that can help reach our sustainable development goals.

    Job description

    The FES seeks candidates with demonstrated excellence in research, teaching and service and with expertise in both theory and applications of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research.

    Candidates do not need to be fluent in Spanish at the moment of applying. They must have excellent oral and written communication skills, a great aptitude for teamwork, and a strong commitment to high quality education and research. Applicants must have earned a PhD degree in Industrial Engineering, Operations Research or a related discipline at the time of hiring. Applicants in the late stage of doctoral studies are welcome. Relevant industry experience and indexed publications are a plus. One of the positions has to be taken in our Viña del Mar campus. Applicants at advanced stages of the academic career (equivalent to associate/full professor) are also highly encouraged. In the latter case, a strong academic publishing history and experience in academic administration is required.

    At FES we believe that diversity broadens our research scope and enhances the quality of our education, so we highly encourage women, international scholars, and minorities to apply for this position.
