Associate/Assistant Professor, Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering
Location: Daejeon, South Korea
Type: Full Time
Academic / College and University
The Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering at KAIST invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the levels of Associate/Assistant Professor. KAIST is a globally renowned science and technology institution, particularly well known for its excellence in engineering and technology. The institute is dedicated to promoting a vibrant academic culture and offers an internationally-minded environment through ways such as teaching all courses in English.
We seek candidates who are genuinely interested in solving complex system design and operations problems in manufacturing and service industries. In this term of invitation, we would like to invite all areas of expertise related to industrial & systems engineering discipline, including (but not limited to) the followings:
Optimization: LP/IP, combinatorial, stochastic programming, convex opt., non-linear opt. as well as optimization for machine learning and machine learning for optimization.
Statistical methods: Statistics, data mining/statistical ML, applied statistics such as quality engineering, experimental design, reliability.
Manufacturingsystemengineering: smart factory, manufacturing system innovation for 2050.
Knowledge-based service engineering (KSE): ML/AI for various KSE domains (financial service, health service, legal service, education service, social welfare and so on). KSE domain researchers (those who have earned doctoral degrees in medicine, healthcare, economics, finance, law, education, social welfare, etc.) with experience and strong willingness in applying ML/AI to the domain are also welcome to apply.
System engineering: Modeling and simulation (incl. discrete event simulation, simulation optimization), domain specific system engineering (energy system, healthcare delivery system, traffic system, other public infra-structures).
Human factors: HCI, AR/VR, Data visualization, ergonomics.
Emerging fields relevant to industrial & systems engineering.
Industrial or academic experience will be considered preferably, and students who are expected to complete their PhDs within 6 months from the application date will also be considered. Application documents along with an up-to-date CV should be sent to:
