Faculty Openings

The University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) is embarking on an aggressive plan to hire 50 new faculty members in five years. 

In line with the Academic Master Plan and the Third Century initiative, Provost Davenport is pleased to announce a drive by the college to hire 50 additional CEAS faculty members- approximately 10 each year, over the next five years. This hiring initiative, labeled “50 in 5,” is sure to benefit the college by adding high caliber faculty to the existing group of respected educators and researchers. 

The University of Cincinnati, a top-25 public research university, is strategically concentrating research efforts on five primary pathways representing our strongest programs and recognized leadership in interdisciplinary research and education: environment, information science, manufacturing and services, sensing, and health.  These pathways represent focus areas for broad-based cross disciplinary research (interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary) involving multiple units and colleges at the University of Cincinnati to develop specific expertise and international recognition as true leaders. 

Successful candidates will have a primary appointment in one of the six departments in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, and potential secondary appointments in other programs within and outside of the College.  The Departments in the College are:

The University of Cincinnati has a strong commitment to the principle of diversity and, in that spirit, seeks a broad spectrum of candidates including women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans.

The University of Cincinnati is the recipient of the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the participation of women in academic science and engineering careers.
