Jingsheng Song is a Special-Term Professor of Management Science at Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF), and Professor of Operations Management at the Fuqua School of Business, Duke University. Before joining Fuqua, she served on the faculties of Columbia University and University California, Irvine, and held visiting positions at the University of California, Berkeley, The Johnson School of Management at Cornell University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, and National University of Singapore. She has also held special-term professorships at the business schools of Tsinghua University, Hohai University, Tongji University, Fudan University, and Shanghai Jiaotong University (and served as the special-term head of the Operations Management Department there).

Professor Song's main expertise is in operations and supply chain management. She studies topics like supply chain coordination mechanisms, global sourcing strategies, inventory and logistics system design and planning, e-commerce channel design, product variety and order fulfillment, supplier management, and supply chain sustainability. She has published over 40 articles in leading international academic journals such as Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management (M&SOM), and Operations Research. She also co-edited the book, Supply Chain Structures: Coordination, Information and Optimization. She is the recipient of several research grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation. In 2003, she was awarded Distinguished Overseas Young Scholar by the National Natural Science Foundation of China. In 2009, she was named the Chang Jiang Scholar by the Ministry of Education in China. In 2013, she won the First Prize of Best Paper Competition at CSAMSE Annual Conference in Beijing, China.
 
Professor Song has served as an Area Editor for Operations Research in the Manufacturing, Service and Supply Chain Operations area, a Department Editor for IIE Transactions, as well as associate editors for Management Science, M&SOM, and Naval Research Logistics. She is also a former President of the Manufacturing and Service Operations Management (MSOM) Society of INFORMS. Recently, she won the 2014 MSOM Distinguished Service Award for her many contributions over the years to the MSOM society.
 
Professor Song holds a Ph.D. in Management Science (1991) from Columbia Business School, Columbia University, and an M.S. in Operations Research (1984) from Institute of Applied Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
