The University of Connecticut is Currently Seeking Applicants for 100 New Faculty Positions Published: November 15, 2013 By: Andy Sohn The University of Connecticut is currently seeking applicants for 100 new faculty positions. This aggressive hiring plan is only one component to Next Generation Connecticut, an unprecedented 1.5 billion dollar investment by the State of Connecticut demonstrating our joint commitment to STEM research and education. New faculty will be joining the University at an exciting time, with Next Gen CT initiatives such as UConn Tech Park, Bioscience CT and our partnership with The Jackson Laboratory furthering UConn on the trajectory of excellence as a major Research 1 institution and Top 20 Public University (USN&WR). Faculty are central in shaping the landscape of our inclusive and diverse community, and the university is dedicated to providing a breadth of resources to new faculty as they transition to UConn. Storrs Center , virtually on campus, is home to new shops, restaurants, businesses and apartments. While our main campus is located in Storrs, CT, our reach is regional. We are within a two and a half-hour radius of New Haven, Providence, Boston and New York. A thirty-minute drive away is Hartford (home to UConn Law and the School of Social Work), which is a vibrant city with a deep history of innovation and intellectual vitality. It is undoubtedly an exciting time at UConn. Visit UConn’s Faculty Hiring to learn more.
