ORIE is searching for faculty for both the Ithaca and Cornell Tech campuses

The Collegetown entrance to Cornell University in springtime.

Cornell University's School of Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE) seeks to fill multiple tenured/tenure-track faculty positions for its Ithaca campus. We will primarily consider applicants with research interests in the areas of discrete optimization and financial engineering, especially those individuals who do computation, who work with data, or whose work intersects with machine learning. Nevertheless, we welcome strong applicants from all research areas represented within ORIE, especially those in resonance with College of Engineering Strategic Areas: https://www.engineering.cornell.edu/research-and-faculty/strategic-areas-research. Requisite is a strong interest in the broad mission of the School, exceptional potential for leadership in research and education, an ability and willingness to teach at all levels of the program, and a PhD in operations research, mathematics, statistics, or a related field by the start of the appointment. Salary will be appropriate to qualifications and engineering school norms.

Cornell ORIE is a diverse group of high-quality researchers and educators interested in probability, optimization, statistics, machine learning, simulation, and a wide array of applications such as e-commerce, supply chains, scheduling, manufacturing, transportation systems, health care, financial engineering, service systems and network science. We value mathematical and technical depth and innovation, and experience with applications and practice. Ideal candidates will have correspondingly broad training and interests.

Please apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11870 with a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching and research interests, sample publications, at least three reference letters and, for junior applicants, a doctoral transcript. All applications completed by November 16, 2018 will receive full consideration, but we urge candidates to submit all required material as soon as possible. We will accept applications until we fill the positions.

ORIE and the College of Engineering at Cornell embrace diversity and seek candidates who can contribute to a welcoming climate for students of all races and genders. Cornell University seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches. Visit www.unyherc.org/home to see positions available in higher education in the upstate New York area. Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We strongly encourage qualified women and minority candidates to apply.


Interested in Cornell Tech?

A faculty position in Operations Research and Information Engineering (ORIE) is available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. The position is part of the Jacobs Technion—Cornell Institute, and we particularly encourage candidates whose work fits into Jacobs Institute application-domain emphases in the areas of urban technology, especially related to the intersection of digital and physical systems, and digital health technologies.

The position is within Cornell University’s School of ORIE, and applicants with research interests represented within Cornell ORIE are welcome at all levels, including tenured and tenure-track. The School consists of a diverse group of high-quality researchers and educators interested in probability, optimization, statistics, simulation, and a wide array of applications such as e-commerce, supply chains, scheduling, manufacturing, transportation systems, health care, financial engineering, service systems and network science. Cornell ORIE spans both the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but the successful candidate’s teaching and research will be based in New York City. (Interested candidates can apply for a Cornell Tech in NYC position, a Cornell Ithaca ORIE position, or both, but the two campuses have different application sites; please see the Cornell Ithaca ad for the Ithaca application URL.)

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in operations research, mathematics, statistics, or a related field by the start of the appointment, and have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure-track or tenured faculty in Cornell ORIE. They must also have a strong commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster significant commercial or societal impact, as aligned with the mission of the Cornell Tech campus. The Institute seeks candidates with demonstrated transdisciplinary interests and a track record of translational science. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue an active research program, to teach Master’s and Ph.D.-level graduate courses, and to supervise graduate students.

All applications completed by November 16, 2018 will receive full consideration, but we urge candidates to submit all required material as soon as possible. We will accept applications until we fill the positions. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, brief statements of research and teaching interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references. They should also identify one or two top publications to which they have made significant contributions. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the research statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research. Applications are online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12018.
