The Department of Industrial Engineering at Clemson University invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. Candidates with internationally-recognized scholarly credentials may be considered at the rank of Professor. The expected start date is August 2020.

We are seeking candidates in all areas of operations research and human factors engineering with an ability to create and use mathematical, statistical, computational and data-driven methods to address a wide array of problems arising in healthcare, energy, supply chain, manufacturing and automation. Of particular interest are individuals working at the interface of these fields, data science and machine learning. Candidates must have a strong methodological background and an interest in advancing cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research. Our primary search criterion is research potential; however, candidates must also demonstrate evidence of, or potential for, teaching excellence.

The Department of Industrial Engineering currently has 15 full-time faculty members with anticipated growth to 25 faculty members within the next few years. We have a student population of nearly 550 undergraduate students, 100 on-campus M.S. students, and 33 Ph.D. students.
