The Engineering Systems Management (ESM) Program at American University of Sharjah invites applications for a permanent faculty position at the Professor rank starting Fall 2018. Applicants must be willing to work in a collaborative environment and be committed to pursuing excellence in research, teaching and advising graduate students in the newly established doctoral program in ESM. We seek talented and motivated candidates with a PhD in engineering management or a related area with a focus on performance management and decision making. Candidates with experience and expertise in other areas related to engineering management will be considered.  Teaching experience in an American model of higher education and/or in North American industry are highly desirable, as is experience in advising doctoral students. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a productive research program and attract high-quality doctoral students to the new program.

The successful candidate will have an appointment within one of the six departments in the College of Engineering and is expected to significantly contribute to the newly established PhD program in ESM. The ESM PhD program is the first of several doctoral programs planned over the next few years, as AUS embarks on a major expansion of its research and graduate programs with a projected investment of US$ 500M over the next five years.
