Inter-College Faculty Hiring (Cluster Hiring Program)
The inter-college or “cluster” hiring program, made available through the Office of the Provost, offers the ability for Purdue and the colleges to invest in areas that span multiple disciplines across colleges and to contribute to national and global research/education leadership.
The goals are to position the University for growth in the discovery enterprise, to attract faculty who will educate the interdisciplinary scholars of the future, and to attract students, other faculty, and staff who will define and impact the disciplines of tomorrow.
Faculty hired through this program can be affiliated with applicable departments within two or more colleges. Currently the College of Engineering is participating in cluster hires related to integrated imaging and in pharmaceutical biologics.
