Graduate School of Data Science (GSDS) and DepartmentofIndustrial& Systems Engineering (ISysE) at KAIST invites applications for tenure-trackfacultypositionsat the levels of Associate/Assistant/Full Professor. KAIST GSDS is a recently established graduate (MS and PhD) program, prepared by a joint team of KAIST faculty with the lead of ISysE department.
We are actively seeking candidates who are genuinely interested in building a strong graduate program on data science, defining the future of manufacturing/service industries and/or the human- centric engineering field. In this term of recruit, we would like to invite the following areas:
theories and foundations in data science (including AI and machine learning)
optimization for data science
probabilistic / stochastic model for data science
data driven decision making under uncertainty
data science + X: applications of data science to solving industrial or social problems, including (but not limited to) manufacturing, financial services, medical and healthcare services, legal services, public services such as social welfare, and so on
Manufacturing systems engineering for 2050:
shaping manufacturing systems for 2050: beyond lean production
efficient, flexible, disturbance tolerant, agile, and reliable manufacturing system
operation management for autonomous production system
key enabling technology components for “genuine” industry 4.0
data/information visualization, human-computer interaction, human factors, ergonomics, cognitive engineering, human-integrated systems, or relevant fields with strong theoretical background and first-hand experiences in evaluation techniques (either quantitative or qualitative)
application of human-related knowledge to real-world problems, particularly in data- inundating fields
Otheremerging fields relevant to industrial & systems engineering and data science.
Industrial or academic experience will be considered preferably, and students who are expected to complete their PhDs within 9 months from the application date will also be considered. Application documents along with an up-to-date CV should be sent to:
