As New York’s flagship university and a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), the University at Buffalo (UB) is among the premier research universities in the nation and world. UB is the thriving epicenter of the Western New York regional community, a national leader in public higher education, and a global hub for excellence in research and education. As a diverse academic community, UB’s mission is to bring the benefits of our research, scholarship, creative activity, and educational excellence to global and local communities in ways that change the world for the better. We believe in public education for the public good.
Building on our existing strong foundation of academic and research excellence, UB’s long-range strategic goal to be recognized among the Top 25 public research universities in the nation is focused on continually pursuing academic and research excellence, and expanding the university’s engagement and impact locally, nationally and globally. UB is determined to continually promote and support collaborative, cross-disciplinary research dedicated to addressing the most critical issues and challenges of our time. UB is also committed to harnessing its educational, research and engagement energies to combat racism, dismantle structural barriers to equity, and make UB a more inclusive place to live, learn and work.
With a historic investment from New York State and in support of our Top 25 goal, we will substantially grow our ranks of tenured and tenure-track faculty over the next two years in areas of great societal importance and university strength: Democracy and Society, Human Health, Sustainability, and Transformational Technology. In particular, we are interested in recruiting faculty who will carry out impactful research and scholarship, provide innovative educational and research opportunities for our students, and enhance UB’s international recognition.
