Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure track position. We are interested in exceptional candidates at all levels. Competitive candidates will have the training and experience necessary to teach effectively in a highly-ranked department that advances undergraduate students through an accredited BS degree program and graduate students enrolled in MS and PhD programs. While we are interested in candidates with backgrounds in all areas of Industrial and Systems Engineering, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in Analytics, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Optimization, Systems Simulation, Cloud Analytics, and computational tools for analytics (proficiency with Python, R, and SQL is a plus).  At a minimum, candidates must be qualified to teach Master’s level classes in predictive analytics, data mining, and performance analysis with simulation as well as undergraduate classes in Python programming and database systems.  The USC Viterbi School is committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and welcomes applications from women; persons of African, Hispanic. and Native American descent; veterans; and persons with disabilities.


We invite applications from candidates knowledgeable in Industrial and Systems Engineering, and we will focus on a candidate’s promise and/or track record during the review process.  This is primarily a teaching position; all candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching.  The position will require the majority of the time to be spent on teaching with reduced obligation for university service and no expectation for research.  An earned doctorate degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering or a closely related field is required. 


The anticipated start date is August 16, 2024. Candidates should apply at https://usccareers.usc.edu/.  Applications must include a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae, a teaching statement (up to 2 pages), and names of at least three professional references at least two of whom must be familiar with and able to comment on the applicant’s teaching experience. Applicants may optionally include a research statement and are encouraged to provide a succinct statement on fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. Applications should be submitted by January 31, 2024, to receive full consideration; however, applications received after this date may also be considered until the position is filled.

  • Lecturer of Industrial and Systems Engineering : $89,250 - $105,000

  • Senior Lecturer of Industrial and Systems Engineering: $105,000 - $120,750
