Philip Smith, Professor and Chair 

The Department of Integrated Systems (ISE) at The Ohio State University, one of the nation’s top ten public universities, invites applications for a tenure-track position from individuals with expertise and demonstrated records of accomplishment in areas identified below, including a focus on the simulation of manufacturing processes. Applicants should also demonstrate the background necessary to teach a broader range of courses in manufacturing processes. (All faculty ranks will be considered.) ISE offers degrees (BS, MS and Ph.D.) in Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Candidates with expertise in the simulation of manufacturing processes should demonstrate expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) for structural modeling and /or composite manufacturing
  • Advanced multi-scale characterization of lightweight metals and reinforced polymer composites Experience in experimental implementation of the manufacturing processes also is highly desirable.

A candidate hired with this expertise will be expected to play an active role in the Simulation Innovation and Modeling Center at Ohio State, providing leadership and participating in collaborative research efforts.

We seek a person who will provide leadership and engage in collaboration. Candidates must have earned (or be about to earn) a doctoral degree in engineering or in a closely related field. Manufacturing industry-related experience is highly desirable. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and sustain a strong research program by attracting sponsored research funding, teach core undergraduate and/or graduate courses, supervise graduate student research and provide service at the National and State levels as well as within the University.
