University (UGent), Belgium, seeks candidates for a tenure-track
assistant/associate-professor position in the domain of "Industrial
Systems Engineering", to start next academic year (2015-2016). The
appointment will be at the Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor

optimization of production systems are strongly encouraged to apply. Any
industrial experience will be considered as an asset.

The department EA18 is active in the domains of Industrial Engineering
(IE) and Operations Research (OR). It wishes to strengthen its expertise
in the area of Industrial Systems Engineering. It seeks a candidate with
a proven research record, based on peer-reviewed international
publications, in the domain of systems design, control and optimization
or in a closely related domain. The candidate is also expected to play
an important role in the strategic research center "Flanders Make",

master students. The candidate will be expected to participate in these
activities albeit with moderation.
