The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for an Assistant Professor level tenure-track position in Operations Research starting in the 2023-2024 academic year. Strong applicants will have a track record of outstanding research, a compelling vision for their future research, and the potential to excel at teaching. The specialty of the candidate may be in any of the sub-fields of Optimization, Statistics, Analytics, Machine Learning and Operations Research broadly construed. We are especially interested in candidates who can build a strong methodological research base, contribute to application areas of high impact, and be a successful teacher in our undergraduate, MBA, Master of Science in Business Analytics, Master of Science in Computational Finance, and PhD programs.

There is a rich tradition of graduates going on to successful careers in these areas both in academia (in business schools, in OR and IE departments in engineering schools, as well as in Math and Computer Science departments), and in industry.
