In particular, we presently seek instructors for Management Science. You should be able to teach the following topics:

  • Linear Programming
  • Integer Programming
  • Nonlinear Programming
  • Transportation, Transshipment, and Assignment Models
  • Network Flow Models
  • Queuing Theory
  • Time-Series Forecasting
  • Simulation

We invite applicants to teach one or more graduate or undergraduate courses:

MG-UY 4204 Management Science (Undergraduate Course)

Tuesday & Thursday 2:00pm – 3:50pm

This course teaches students to create mathematical models of managerial problems. Types of models discussed include linear programming, integer-linear programming, non-linear programming, queuing models, decision-tree models, game-theoretic models, simulation models, inventory models and more. Each model is discussed in the context of the assumptions necessary for modeling and the robustness of the model’s managerial recommendations.

MG-GY 6103 Management Science (Graduate Course)

Monday 2:00 – 4:30pm (Weekday and Time Negotiable)  

This course introduces major concepts and methods associated with Management Science, which deals with the application of quantitative modeling and analysis to management problems. Students learn to employ important analytical tools, to determine the assumptions used, and to recognize the limitations of such methods. The course discusses methods of linear and nonlinear programming, queuing, decision analysis, simulations and game theory. The course also introduces modeling with spreadsheets.

You should be an excellent teacher.  You should have a Ph.D. in Management Science, Operations research, Industrial Engineering, Economics, Mathematics, or a closely related discipline and a record of teaching experience in these areas. 

You should submit:

  • Cover letter
  • Current CV
  • Recent teaching evaluations (if available)
  • Teaching statement describing experience and teaching philosophy
  • Names and contact information for at least two references.

We will review applications starting ASAP and will continue until we fill the position; we encourage you to submit early.

If you apply for this position please say you saw it on Interdisciplinoxy
