Careers at the University of Dayton

Founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary (Marianists), the University of Dayton is a top-tier Catholic research university.

The University seeks outstanding, diverse faculty and staff who value its mission and share its commitment to academic excellence in teaching, research and artistic creativity, the development of the whole person, and leadership and service in the local and global community.

For more than 160 years, our Marianist traditions have enriched our community, creating a welcoming and inclusive campus where faith is best communicated through personal relationships. We believe that education can transform society if people work together in a common mission.
