The department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences (IE&IS) engages in education and research in the area of operational business processes and transitions in societies in relation to technical changes. In the IE&IS department, scholars and students work together on critical problems at the interface of engineering, management, innovation, and human behavior. The department has two schools: the School of Industrial Engineering and the School of Innovation Sciences.

The School of Industrial Engineering is one of the leading IE schools in Europe, with a strong presence in the international research and education community. Within the School of Industrial Engineering four degree programs are taught: BSc in Industrial Engineering & Management Science, MSc in Operations Management & Logistics, MSc in Innovation Management, and PhD in Operations, Logistics and Innovation Management. The research in the School is strongly connected to the Brainport area, the high-tech industrial area around Eindhoven.

The Information Systems group performs research and teaches in business information systems, focusing on advanced support of operational business processes and business services, both within individual organizations and in the context of dynamic networks of organizations. Research aims at decision support systems, design and analysis tools, and information system architectures, using advanced prototypes. The research approach is model-centric and engineering-oriented, integrating basic and applied research with contemporary real-world cases. Main application domains are the services industry, health care, supply chains and logistics, and high-tech manufacturing. The research of the group is organized in an open, topic-oriented, dynamic cluster structure. The group operates in both a strong international research network and an extensive international industry network.

This position is embedded in the 'Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering' (DeSIRE) programme, an extensive capacity building programme, set-up by the 4TU-Centre Resilience Engineering [www.4tu.nl/resilience]. Within this programme of the 4 technical universities of the Netherlands, 16 new tenure track positions have been created at 13 faculties across the 4TU, to conduct excellent research of societal value and set-up and contribute to educational programmes on Resilience Engineering. You will be working in a team of top scientists and you will have the opportunity to work on concrete resilience challenges for our broad network of partners in policy and practice. We foster interdisciplinary collaboration between the 16 tenure trackers, associated scientific staff and public and private partners.
