Faculty Recruitment

Over the next five years, Virginia Tech is strategically investing in hiring 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. 

We are looking for new faculty to join our team. 

Virginia Tech faculty should be encouraged to understand difference and disparity for the practical pursuit and application of their scholarship, and Virginia Tech students should be equipped to promote equity in the human condition in their professional and personal lives.
