Welcome Message from the Provost

Provost Kenneth G. Furton

Welcome to the career portal for faculty positions currently available at Florida International University, home to more than 54,000 outstanding students educated by our 1,200 world class faculty and supported by 5,400 dedicated staff.

I have the privilege to serve as the chief academic officer at Miami’s only public research university. Since opening our doors in 1972, FIU has seen tremendous growth both in numbers and the quality of our faculty, staff and students. We are among the ten largest public research institutions in the nation and have many national recognitions including being ranked #17 in the nation by Washington Monthly and classified by Carnegie as a Highest Research Activity University.

Florida International University is part of a vibrant metropolitan community facilitating integration of pioneering research, community engagement and unique learning opportunities. Faculty have opportunities to get involved in relevant issues and make meaningful contributions to this community we call home.

Living in South Florida provides an exceptional mix of diverse perspectives, cultures and opportunities. Within driving distance of FIU’s main campus, there is downtown Miami with its thriving condo scene, suburbs with single-family homes and parks, as well as rural communities in South Dade, South Broward, and Miami Beach. South Florida is home to world-class dining, cultural and sports scenes, and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the Everglades to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. Florida International University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
