We are seeking 15 exceptional scholars to expand our tenure-track faculty in four thematic areas: Health and the Human Condition, Sustainable Urban Communities, Global Environmental Impact, and Data-Driven Discovery. These are the research thrusts of UTA's 2020 Strategic Plan.
These thematic areas also align well with the College of Engineering’s Strategic Plan, which places a priority on Energy, Security, Healthcare and the Environment. The key objective is recruiting faculty members with outstanding qualifications who share the University’s core values of high standards of excellence in teaching, innovative and collaborative research, and service. Major emphasis will be on potential collaboration for research with faculty members from other departments across UTA and outside the University.
