Faculty Hiring Programs

As stated in our strategic plan, our goal is to expand our faculty by 250 by 2021. We have launched two new efforts: the Midcareer Professor Hiring Program and the Visiting Distinguished Professor Program. We are also continuing the Distinguished Professor and Presidential Postdoc hiring programs, as well as the usual school-based recruitments.
