Virginia Tech is strategically investing in hiring more than 400 new innovative and collaborative faculty to advance its vision to grow beyond boundaries as a premier 21st-century global land-grant institution through our Destination Areas initiative.  As interconnected areas of strength, Destination Areas facilitate faculty collaborations that bridge disciplines to create innovative and transformative solutions to global issues, while positioning Virginia Tech as a premier destination for talent that seeks to advance the human condition.  

Virginia Tech recognizes the vital importance of inclusion and diversity for our campus community in achieving excellence in all of our work and study.  The university continues to diversify faculty, staff, and students along multiple dimensions, including those that have been historically marginalized and excluded. Through committed university efforts such as AdvanceVT and InclusiveVT, the university continues to build institutional and individual commitment to its motto of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence.  Further, we seek scholars who are committed to fostering an environment in which faculty, staff, and students from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and personal experiences are welcomed and can thrive.

In support of these strategic initiatives, Virginia Tech is recruiting robust and diverse clusters of faculty interested in contributing to transdisciplinary research, teaching, and/or outreach initiatives that align with our Destination Areas.  The university currently has exciting opportunities for new faculty in these areas:
