Job Description:


The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University (The State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for two faculty members, at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level starting in Spring 2020 or Fall 2020. The positions involve teaching at all levels from undergraduate courses to advanced graduate courses, and establishing theoretical and applied research in emerging areas in industrial and systems engineering. One position requires expertise in the broad areas of health systems engineering, healthcare data science/analytics, population health, healthcare information technology/systems, and personalized/precision medicine. The other position requires hands-on experience in advanced manufacturing, with special interest in areas such as contemporary additive manufacturing (3D printing), advanced robotics or cobotics (collaborative robots), intelligent/flexible production systems, green manufacturing, smart manufacturing, the use of Internet of Things (IoT) to transform the future of manufacturing, and advanced automation and cyber-physical systems. Qualified applicants in other emerging areas of industrial and systems engineering may be considered.


The Watson School is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, and especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate for this position will be expected to help increase the number of women, underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities, as well as help increase external funding to support diverse populations. Prospective candidates are encouraged to visit the department website (http://www.ssie.binghamton.edu) for more details


The SSIE Department has consistently secured over 3 million dollars in research funding per year in the last five years. For the 2018-2019 fiscal year, the SSIE Department secured $5.76 million in committed funds and had a total of about $5.54 million in research expenditures. At this level of research productivity, the SSIE Department ranked the highest in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied and the second on-campus in committed funds and research expenditures. Our faculty members work collaboratively with over 30 sponsors from industry and federal agencies. With an excellent and growing academic reputation, the SSIE Department is internationally renowned in the electronics manufacturing/electronics packaging arena. Another area of substantial growth is health systems, and our faculty works with several major healthcare organizations across the nation and abroad. The department is continuing significant expansion, including these two positions.


The department has twenty-three (23) faculty members and offers a BS degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and MS and PhD Degrees in both Systems Science (SS) and Industrial and Systems Engineering (or ISE). SSIE also offers a cutting-edge executive health systems program in Manhattan. With about 220 undergraduate, 210 masters, and 180 doctoral students, the department is growing in numbers and in reputation.


One of these positions is affiliated with the University's Health Sciences Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence (TAE). The successful candidate will contribute to the development of this TAE as an area of research and teaching. The search committee will include members of the Health Sciences TAE steering committee as well as from the Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering. For more information on the TAE go to http://www.binghamton.edu/tae.


The successful candidate will have a tenure berth in Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.


Located in Binghamton, NY, we are ideally situated in the high-tech heart of the state. Industry partnerships, class projects and internship opportunities provide a wealth of hands-on experience for graduate and undergraduate students alike.



Requirements:


The candidate must have a doctoral degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering or a closely related field. The candidate should also have good leadership skills and should have an excellent record of scholarly publications. Teaching experience is also preferred.


The candidate is expected to have a high potential to initiate and sustain an externally funded multi-disciplinary research program and to take a major role in advancing the research and academic mission of the SSIE Department. These positions are part of the campus-wide health sciences cluster and, as such, the hire would be working closely with other individuals within this cluster.


One Assistant Professor position requires expertise in the broad areas of health systems engineering, healthcare data science/analytics, population health, healthcare information technology/systems, and personalized/precision medicine. The other Assistant Professor position requires hands-on experience in advanced manufacturing, with special interest in areas such as contemporary additive manufacturing (3D printing), advanced robotics or cobotics (collaborative robots), intelligent/flexible production systems, green manufacturing, smart manufacturing, the use of Internet of Things (IoT) to transform the future of manufacturing, and advanced automation and cyber-physical systems. Qualified applicants in other emerging areas of industrial and systems engineering may be considered.
