Engineering Faculty Positions

Since 1873 when Notre Dame became the first Catholic university in the country to have a school of engineering, we've viewed engineering's mission of making the world a better place in which to live as complementary to the University's mission of creating a sense of human solidarity and deep concern for the common good. Today, Notre Dame's College of Engineering is a distinctively Catholic research institution focused on five cross-cutting themes: human health and well-being, energy, sustainability, personal and national security, and economic development. We view these themes as undergirded and integrated with the values of human dignity, the common good, and intergenerational and social justice. Our state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge research, and next-generation technologies, along with our diverse student body and internationally-known faculty, continually demonstrate how one's faith advances one's work, and how one's work enhances one's faith. We have increased our faculty ranks by 30% in the last 4 years and plan an additional substantial expansion. We seek faculty in all disciplines: aerospace, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering, and in computer science and geosciences.

The University invites academically gifted applicants supportive of and dedicated to enhancing its mission as a Catholic research university, particularly women, members of historically underrepresented groups, and others who will enhance the diversity of its faculty to apply.
