Lecturer in Systems Engineering

Viterbi School of Engineering Faculty Los Angeles, California

The University of Southern California, one of the nation’s top research universities, seeks a candidate for a teaching position (Lecturer or higher rank) to teach undergraduate and graduate students in courses offered by the Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. This is a full-time, benefits-eligible, teaching-track faculty position on the nontenure track.

The USC Viterbi School is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty, and welcomes applications from women, individuals from racial/ethnic populations demographically underrepresented in engineering, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. Competitive candidates will have the training and experience to teach effectively in a highly-ranked department that advances undergraduate students through an accredited B.S. degree program, and graduate students enrolled in world-class M.S. and Ph.D. programs. While we are interested in candidates with backgrounds in all areas of Industrial and Systems Engineering, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in Analytics, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Optimization, Systems Simulation, Cloud Analytics, and Computational Tools for Analytics (proficiency with Python, R, and SQL is a plus).

We invite applications from candidates knowledgeable in Industrial and Systems Engineering, and will focus on a candidate’s experience, track-record, and their potential during the review process. The position will require the majority of effort to be spent on teaching and teaching-related duties. An
earned doctorate degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering or a closely related field is required. While we seek applications at the rank of Lecturer, in exceptional cases applicants with longer and more accomplished teaching experience and/or other significant credentials may also be considered for a
commensurate higher-ranked position (e.g., Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor of Practice, or Professor of Practice).

The anticipated start date is 16 August 2023. Applications must include a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae, a teaching statement (up to 2 pages), and names of at least three professional references (at least two of whom must be familiar with and able to comment on the applicant’s teaching experience). Applicants should include a succinct statement on fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. Applications should be submitted by 16 January 2023 in order to receive full consideration; applications received after this deadline might not be considered.


The annual base salary range for the following faculty ranks in this posting are:

  • Lecturer: $85,000 - $100,000

  • Senior Lecturer: $100,000 - $115,000

  • Associate Professor of Practice: $115,000 - $135,000

  • Professor of Practice: $135,000 - $175,000


When extending an offer of employment, the University of Southern California considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope of responsibilities of the position, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, federal, state and local laws, contractual stipulations, grant funding, as well as external market and organizational considerations. 

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is among the top engineering schools in the world. Department faculty engage in interdisciplinary research through the school’s research centers, including the Information Sciences Institute, the Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Threats and Emergencies, the National Center for Metropolitan Transportation Research, the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society, USC Machine Learning Center, the Institute for Creative Technologies, the Center for Research and Education in AI and Learning, and the Center for Advanced Manufacturing. Viterbi School research
expenditures typically exceed $210 million annually.

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is committed to enabling the success of dual-career families and fosters a family-friendly environment. USC is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, disability, or any other characteristic protected by law or USC policy. USC will consider for employment all qualified applicants with criminal histories in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Los Angeles Fair Chance Initiative for Hiring ordinance.
