Faculty Administrator (38828) or Associate or Full Professor (38898)
The Institute for Simulation & Training (IST) at the University of Central Florida (UCF) is accepting applications for two (2) faculty positions.
1. Faculty Administrator or Associate or Full Professor (38825) position within the IST program (http://www.ist.ucf.edu) who will spend the majority of their effort serving as the deputy director of the institute with responsibility for leadership and management of the research program. The remainder of effort is expected to be spent securing and leading other research efforts within UCF.
This position is a 12-month, state-funded faculty appointment within IST. The selected candidate will serve as deputy director of the institute, lead sponsored research, and may teach within the MS&T graduate program. We welcome candidates whose professional experience or research emphasizes “Modeling, Simulation & Training”. Examples include, but are not limited to, cognitive science, mathematics, human factors, computer science/computer engineering, systems engineering, etc. We are seeking a candidate who can demonstrate a significant level of research administrative experience in order to effectively assume a leadership role within a very diverse research faculty and broad research portfolio. An appointment within the professoriate (i.e., tenured associate or full professor) at a level commensurate with credentials may also be considered with appropriate coordination with the tenure granting department.

2. Associate or Full Professor (38898) faculty position within the Modeling, Simulation & Training (MS&T) graduate program (http://www.ist.ucf.edu/grad), to begin in August 2018. This is a tenured 9-month faculty appointment to teach and conduct research. We are specifically seeking an individual who would serve as the MS&T graduate program director (initially for up to a 3-year term). While serving as graduate program director, the incumbent will have a reduced teaching load and receive a summer stipend. The MS&T graduate program is currently a department of IST. Since inception, it has produced more than 350 M.S. and 100 Ph.D. graduates, with more than 100 students currently enrolled in the program. We expect the program to continue to grow and to diversify, to include additional disciplines. Efforts to establish a School of Modeling, Simulation & Training are currently underway.
We seek applicants with a demonstrated record of rigorous research and scholarship, a record of external grant funding, and excellence in teaching (especially the training of graduate students) within topics relevant to MS&T. Candidates must demonstrate an interest in helping to strengthen the MS&T program and the ability to work collaboratively across disciplinary boundaries with faculty and students in various departments and disciplines. The successful candidate must have teaching and research experience and sufficient administrative experience to effectively assume leadership of the MS&T program. The successful candidate will have expertise that complements our existing programs and will continue to grow their own research program. We are interested in faculty whose work focuses on the intersection of humans with technical systems and social systems.
