Florida State University-Florida A&M University College of Engineering Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering


The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Florida State University - Florida A&M University College of Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of optimization. The preferred candidate would be hired at the assistant professor level, although applicants with outstanding qualifications and experience may be considered for appointment at a higher rank, and tenure can be considered. Successful candidates are expected to develop a strong externally-funded research program. The successful candidate must also demonstrate excellence in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and mentoring M.S. and Ph.D. students, and participate in service activities within the department, the university and the profession.
The FSU-FAMU College of Engineering is unique in combining two outstanding universities with overlapping but distinct missions - the nation's ~100 Highest Research Activity Universities with one of the nation's top Historically Black College/University. As such we provide an outstanding research and entrepreneurship based education to one of the most diverse student populations in the US.
The IME Department presently has 14 faculty members, ABET accredited B.S. programs in industrial engineering with 175 undergraduate students, and M.S. and Ph.D. programs in industrial and manufacturing engineering and engineering management with over 60 graduate students.
The IME department provides excellent research opportunities as home of the High-Performance Materials Institute. Additional research opportunities are available through collaboration with several FSU and FAMU laboratories/centers including the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, the Center for Advanced Power Systems, and the Center of Research Excellence in Science and Technology. Over the last 5 years, the annual research expenditures have averaged approximately $2.5 million from multiple sources including active NSF and DoD grants. According to ASEE, over the past 10 years, our research expenditures per faculty have ranked among the top 5 IE departments.


Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, Systems Engineering, Operations Research, Computer Science, or a related discipline. The desired research and teaching areas of interest are in optimization theory including stochastic programming and integer programming with applications in machine learning, data science, energy systems, healthcare systems, transportation systems or resilient infrastructure.
