The department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Lehigh 
University invites applications for a
Full or Associate Professor. We welcome applications  from individuals 
with strong backgrounds in
any ISE-relevant discipline, including industrial engineering,  
operations research, systems engineering,
and computer science.  Candidates with a strong background in  
high-performance computing and/or
large-scale optimization with interests in financial engineering or  
bioinformatics/health care are especially
encouraged to apply. The candidate must demonstrate a strong  commitment 
to undergraduate and
graduate education, conduct an active research program with strong  
external support, and be willing to
explore interdisciplinary research opportunities within the college and  

The department is undergoing significant growth in various area of 
operations research and computing.
Current research thrusts include (1) optimization, (2) high-performance 
computing, (3) manufacturing,
production, and logistics, (4) information systems, and (5) stochastic 
processes. Recent hires at the junior
level have joined the Department in these and related areas with 
specializations in parallel algorithms,
grid computing, mathematical programming, robust optimization, 
telecommunications, and supply
chain analysis.

Established in 1926, the ISE Department currently has 15 full-time 
faculty members, 130 undergraduates
and 120 graduate students, about 50 of which are Ph.D. students. We 
offer comprehensive research and
education programs at the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. levels. The ISE faculty 
maintains an outstanding international
reputation in a variety of research areas. Active research topics 
include discrete optimization, high performance
computing, financial optimization, telecommunications, and a variety of 
topics in logistics and supply chain
analysis. The Department maintains excellent computational and 
laboratory facilities, including a 64-processor
Beowulf cluster for parallel computing. Annual research expenditures 
exceed $3.5 million. The Department
has extensive interdisciplinary ties with the business school through 
the Center for Value Chain Research and
finance and mathematics departments through the Analytical Finance program.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2006 and will continue 
until the position is filled. Send a statement of
research and teaching interests, a curriculum vita, representative 
research paper(s), names and addresses of at least
three references, and a cover letter to Professor Robert H. Storer,
