Faculty Search – Division of Systems Engineering


The Division of Systems Engineering and the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at Boston University (BU) are seeking candidates for several anticipated faculty positions with possible joint appointments. All areas and ranks will be considered. The Division is particularly interested in entry level candidates with active research (a) in optimization and machine learning, especially pertaining to the processing of very large data sets, and (b) in cybersecurity.

The Division of Systems Engineering (SE) is based on a rather unique interdisciplinary graduate program with select faculty from different engineering departments and in close collaboration with the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE). The program emphasizes cutting-edge research on analytical and computational methods aiming to design and manage human-made and physical systems spanning a broad range of applications. Research activities focus on automation, control and robotics, communication and networking, computational and systems biology, information sciences, production, service, and energy systems, and supply chain management. The 14 faculty members currently in the Division, along with several affiliates from within the College of Engineering, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Management, supervise dozens of Ph.D. students working on projects funded by several federal agencies and private companies.
