Who We Are

When you join the University of Virginia, you join an institution known nationally and internationally for the excellence of its teaching, research, public service, and patient care. Every person here – faculty, staff, student, health care professional – helps to advance our world-class institution, encompassing a larger mission of discovery and service.

  • Top Employer

    We employ more than 28,000 people, including approximately 16,000 faculty and staff and 7,000 Health System employees. Forbes magazine lists the University of Virginia as one of “America’s Top Colleges,” as well as one of “America’s Best Employers for 2018” and “America’s Best Employers for Women 2018.”

    As an employer, the University has an outstanding record of growth and stability and offers a wide variety of exciting and challenging jobs, in addition to exceptional benefits and career development opportunities.

  • Leader In Research

    As a Research 1 institution, the University’s research centers, consortia, and laboratories are on the leading edge of discovery and technology, offering collaborative spaces that bring together interdisciplinary research to address and solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. Our marine biology experts are teaming up with hydrodynamics teams, biomedical researchers are teaming up with authorities in commerce and public policy, and big data leaders are teaming up with renowned brain specialists.

    UVA’s Brain Institute brings together researchers from the schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Education for a concussion-induced inflammation project. Similarly, engineers at UVA are working with applied scientists at the UVA LinkLab to solve the most critical problems at the intersection of the cyber and physical worlds.

    Working at UVA means being a part of something greater.

  • Nationally Ranked Health System

    Established as the nation’s 10th medical school in 1825, we now are home to a 612-bed hospital and a Level I trauma center, nationally recognized cancer and heart centers, a Children’s Hospital, and primary and specialty clinics throughout Central Virginia.

    Our renowned academic Medical Center and Health System consistently rank among the nation’s best hospitals by the U.S. News & World Report magazine, as well as named among the top 25 percent in seven specialties. We provide exceptional patient care, conduct translational research, and train medical practitioners in a wide variety of disciplines.

  • Academical Village

    The Academical Village consists of faculty living in the Pavilions, students occupying Lawn rooms, and the world-famous Rotunda at its heart. Despite numerous inconveniences, hundreds of students annually vie for the honor of a room on the University's Lawn. Whether student, staff, or faculty, the Academical Village provides a collegiate spirit unlike any other university where we live and learn together.

Why Work At UVA?

Positions at UVA reflect a wide breadth of professions, ranging from teaching to administration, medical professions to financial analysis, research to Grounds management, talent recruiting to facilities management, among many others. We have something for you.

  • Dedicated Faculty

    Our faculty are known globally for their pioneering work in research and innovative contributions, including more than 130 patents since 2010. Our best professors look for ways to encourage, mentor, and develop tomorrow’s leaders inside and outside the classroom.

    Critical to the planning and governance of the University, many faculties serve on the Faculty Senate, representing all academic functions, as well as advising the President, the Rectors, and the Board of Visitors concerning educational matters affecting the welfare of the University.

    Perhaps most importantly, faculty come to UVA knowing that instruction is as important as research, and they pride themselves on their many teaching awards.

  • Outstanding Staff

    People choose to work at UVA for many reasons, and there are even more reasons they stay for a career. Ranking in the top 3 public universities is no small feat, and requires commitment, dedication, and tight coordination between, faculty, staff, administration, and students.

    UVA’s staff members are represented by the relatively new but very active Staff Senate, which serves as the representative voice for staff in matters relating to the University; supports staff members in the realization of their full potential at the University; and advances University excellence through its efforts. Over 75 Staff Senators represent staff across Grounds, including the Medical Center and University Physician’s Group, to develop leadership potential as effective managers, build sustainable practices across Grounds, attract and retain excellent talent from across the globe, assist and manage valuable departments, projects, and initiatives, ensure electronic security, and so much more.

  • Temporary Employees

    We identify and place a diverse labor force of uniquely qualified employees in a range of valuable, temporary positions across the Academic, Health System, and University Physicians Group divisions, as well as foundations affiliated with UVA.

  • Leaders in Patient Care

    U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Virginia Medical Center as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia for the third consecutive year. The publication's 2018-2019 "Best Hospitals" guide also recognizes nine UVA specialties for adults among the best in the U.S. Together with six specialties from UVA Children's Hospital are ranked in the top 50 nationally by U.S. News.

    Renowned for the latest and most advanced treatment options, the health system's physicians, nurses and specialty team members are actively involved in research that gives patients access to treatments and medicine not widely available. Patients travel from around the world to seek treatment with UVA's team. Our team members utilize emerging technology and lead experimental treatment protocols. In fact, our healthcare makes headlines routinely. However, it's the attributes of every UVA team member that makes our nationally-recognized care anything but routine. Qualities such as persistence, ingenuity, and initiative help to create an environment where respect and responsiveness, is highly valued.
