The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) in the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University is expanding further and seeks two (2) Assistant Professors with start dates in Fall 2019 and two (2) Research Scientists with flexible start dates:
Assistant Professor – Healthcare Systems/Operations Research/Data Science – 2 positions
Research Scientist – Healthcare Systems, Data Science/Applied Optimization – 2 positions
The Assistant Professor positions require expertise in the broad areas of health systems engineering/operations research, healthcare data science/analytics, population health, healthcare information technology/systems, and personalized/precision medicine. One of the positions is focused on human factors engineering/ergonomics, preferably with applications in the health systems/sciences area.
Assistant Professor positions involve: teaching at all levels (undergraduate courses through advanced graduate courses); and establishing externally funded theoretical and applied research in the respective disciplines. These positions seek research experience that complements the Binghamton University Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence (TAEs: http://www.binghamton.edu/tae/).
The ideal candidates must have (i) an earned doctorate in industrial engineering or closely related engineering disciplines, (ii) excellent leadership skills, and (iii) superb records of research, including garnering funding and scholarly publications. Teaching experience is preferred.
For the Research Scientist positions, we are primarily interested in candidates with expertise in data science/analytics and/or applied operations research/optimization, with special focus in the area of health systems/healthcare delivery. However, candidates with expertise in other areas will also be considered.
The department currently 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). Attracting over $3M dollars in research funding per year, our established faculty works collaboratively with over 30 sponsors from industry and federal agencies. SSIE also offers a cutting-edge executive health systems program in Manhattan. With about 250 undergraduate, 250 masters, and 160 doctoral students, the department is growing in numbers and in reputation. SSIE also offers a cutting-edge executive health systems program in Manhattan. More details are available at http://www.binghamton.edu/ssie/.
