Multiple Faculty Openings

Fueled by visionary leadership and resourced for success, the College of Engineering at the University of Arizona is entering an era of unprecedented growth in student enrollment and faculty hires. Thus, the College invites applications for up to 12 tenure-track or tenured positions – assistant, associate and full professors – in multiple departments. Anticipated start date is August 2021. See below for a list of open positions.

This large, diverse and forward-thinking cohort of new faculty is being recruited as part of the University of Arizona’s ambitious strategic plan, including support of transformational growth in the College of Engineering, where student enrollment is expected to increase by 33% over the next six years. The opportunity to contribute to the future of engineering education, research and outreach in Arizona, and beyond, has never been greater.
