The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) at Binghamton University's Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science is expanding further and seeks one (1) senior faculty position at the full professor level,  three (3) assistant professors, and one (1) research scientist:

The assistant professor positions would begin in the spring or fall 2022 semesters per above and involve teaching at all levels from undergraduate courses to advanced graduate courses, and establishing theoretical and applied research in the area of Human Factors Engineering/Ergonomics (1 position) or Healthcare Systems Engineering (2 positions).  Preference will be given to candidates with HFEE applications in the broad health systems domain, but other application areas will also be considered.

The senior faculty position at the full professor level, with a possible start date of Fall 2022 . We invite prominent leaders in the interdisciplinary fields of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and data science that are integrated into the healthcare applications. This position was made possible by the SUNY Empire Innovation Program, and will be the first of the three cluster hires in "Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Health Sciences, Systems, and Outcomes" over the next two years. All three faculty will have the title, "SUNY Empire Innovation Professor." (1 position)

The successful candidate will be expected to present a clear vision for leading the University's existing research and industrial collaborations, which encompass computer vision and imaging, cybersecurity, nursing, biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, data science, computer science, systems science, statistical learning, network science, mathematical programming, informatics and real-time system control, and health systems engineering.  This candidate will also lead the subsequent search for two senior faculty positions (at the associate professor level) during the 2022-2023 academic year.  These hires will have a direct role in the growth of the University's education programs related to artificial intelligence. 

Although the area of specialization within the AI/ML/healthcare fields is open, we are particularly interested in a candidate who can conduct and lead research in the fundamental AI/ML core research and healthcare applications. Other key areas of interest include affective computing, emotional AI, trustworthy AI, computer vision, natural language processing, imaging and perception, cognitive and robotic science, computational learning theory, large-scale and hyper-parameter optimization, statistical machine learning, complex systems, advanced network science, process mining, data mining, precision and personalized medicine, disease & behavior intervention modeling, delivery optimization, medical knowledge extraction and representation, bioprocess modeling and integration, tissue biofabrication, and robotic engineering of bioprocesses.

The SSIE Department has consistently secured over 5 million dollars in research funding per year for the last three years. In the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the SSIE Department had over $10 million in research expenditures. At this level of research productivity, the SSIE Department ranked the highest on-campus in 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/packaging and flexible electronics arenas. Another area of substantial growth is health systems, and our faculty works with several major healthcare organizations across the nation and abroad. Other significant areas of growth include, but are not limited to, additive manufacturing and 3D printing, advanced data science/analytics, applied operations research/optimization, complex systems science and modeling, and energy systems. A more extensive list of active research areas within the department can be found here. The department is continuing significant expansion, including these positions.

The department has twenty-six (26) faculty members and offers a BS degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), MS degrees in Systems Science (SS), Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), and Healthcare Systems Engineering (HSE), and PhD degrees in Systems Science (SS) and Industrial and Systems Engineering (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. More details are available at http://www.binghamton.edu/ssie/ . The successful candidates will have a tenure berth in the Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.

The Watson College 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.

Located in Binghamton, NY, Binghamton University is 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.

The ideal candidate must have (i) an earned doctorate in industrial engineering or the applied sciences, (ii) excellent leadership skills, and (iii) superb records of research, including garnering funding and scholarly publications. Teaching experience is preferred.
