The Department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences (IE &IS) engages in research and teaching in the areas of industrial engineering, management science, and innovation science.
The mission of the department is closely tied to its pioneering work in developing an engineering perspective on business processes, as well as its interdisciplinary research on transitions in societies in relation to technical changes.
At the heart of its academic philosophy is the synergy between research and teaching. The department offers an academic environment in which scholars and students work on critical problems at the interface of engineering, management and innovation.
The department has two schools : Industrial Engineering (IE) and Innovation Sciences (IS). The school of Industrial Engineering focuses on the design, behavior and performance of operational and innovation processes in industrial and service organizations.
It covers the complete business chain of product design, process design, production, purchasing, outsourcing, distribution and marketing & sales.
The School of Industrial Engineering currently includes the following research groups :
The open positions are part of the Operations Planning, Accounting & Control group.
Operations Planning, Accounting & Control group
OPAC currently consists of 4 full professors, 4 associate professors, 14 assistant professors, 7 postdoctoral fellows, and 24 PhD students.
OPAC is recruiting three postdocs. The faculty teaches and conducts research in operations planning and control in manufacturing, supply chains, transport and logistics, and maintenance.
Research is generally quantitative in nature, while many of the researchers also engage in empirical research.
The OPAC group is responsible within the university for all teaching in the areas of operations management, transportation, reliability, and accounting and finance, both at undergraduate and graduate level.
For these positions, we are open to any relevant research area in Operations Management that is rigorous and relevant to industry.
Purely methodological (OR) research does not fit into the group’s profile, but any Operations Management research does, such as, but not limited to :
We strongly encourage women to apply for this position as TU / e aims for gender-balance.
The selected postdocs perform active research, collaborate with current faculty, and publishes on the research in academic journals.
Each postdoc will spend 30% of his / her time to teaching, which includes the supervision of MSc and BSc thesis projects.
