Faculty Posting Two Open Rank Positions Assistant/Associate/Full Professor, Operations Management & Business Analytics Position Number: 125242 Tenured or tenure track

The Decision, Operations and Information Technologies (DO&IT) Department at The Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland, College Park, MD invites applications for two open-rank tenure-track faculty positions in Operations Management and Business Analytics, starting Fall 2020. We are seeking candidates with a strong commitment to high-quality research and evidence of ability to conduct impactful work publishable in top research journals. We would also expect the faculty member to play a key role in the Department’s academic programs at the Doctoral, Master’s and Undergraduate levels, in terms of teaching and leadership.

The DO&IT faculty at the University of Maryland https://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/faculty-research/academic-departments/decision-operations-information-technologies    is a vibrant and interdisciplinary group actively engaged in theoretical and applied research spanning business analytics, operations management, information systems, management science, and statistics. Several faculty members hold joint or affiliate appointments across the university in mathematics, engineering, computer science. The Smith School is a recognized leader in management research and education, with nationally ranked MBA, MS and undergraduate programs, as well as a strong doctoral program. The school is consistently ranked among the top business schools by leading publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Financial Times, Business Week, and Wall Street Journal. Many DO&IT faculty are actively engaged in research and teaching activities associated with the School’s Center for Digital Technology, Analytics, and Data Science (CTADS), which integrates Smith School activities related to analytics, artificial intelligence, data science, and digital technologies. The incumbents will be expected to teach courses, conduct research, and perform service.

Tenure-Track Position in Operations Management and Business Analytics

The ideal candidate will have a PhD (already in hand or have one by Fall 2020) in management science, operations management, industrial engineering/operations research, computer science, or related fields. We are interested in candidates with broad research and teaching interests whose skill sets enhance the diversity of our research and teaching portfolio. The search is broad, encompassing all methodological and application areas of operations management and management science, with a particular interest in candidates whose research integrates management science/operations management research with business analytics applications. One of the positions may potentially be a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research (www.isr.umd.edu). The Institute for Systems Research is a permanent, interdisciplinary research unit within the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. For a joint appointment, we are particularly interested in candidates with a research emphasis in aviation operations research.

The department offers business analytics courses across the undergraduate and graduate programs and houses the MS in Business Analytics (www.rhsmith.umd.edu/programs/ms-business-analytics) and MS in Information Systems (www.rhsmith.umd.edu/programs/ms-information-systems) Programs. Candidates with potential to teach in these programs are encouraged to apply.
