Working at Carolina


The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill rates among the nation’s great institutions of higher education, set on an historic and beautiful campus that celebrates all four seasons. Carolina’s students, faculty and staff come here from around the world, bringing varied cultural, racial and ethnic heritages that help make Carolina a thriving intellectual center. We’re repeatedly ranked the nation’s best value in higher education for students seeking to earn a college degree – the University has garnered the top spot each time since the ranking’s launch in 1998.

Chapel Hill, also known as the “southern part of heaven,” is the quintessential college town. Chapel Hill and its next-door neighbor, Carrboro, offer cultural variety, great schools and communities, beautiful natural surroundings and dynamic downtowns. In fact, Chapel Hill was recently named one of the most livable cities in America, thanks to its fare-free transit system.

Beyond the diverse and welcoming community of Chapel Hill, there’s also the Research Triangle — one of the nation’s fastest-growing high-tech centers — and the many cultural amenities of nearby Raleigh-Durham.

Centrally located in the state, Chapel Hill offers a convenient departure point for day trips to explore all that the beautiful state of North Carolina has to offer — from the breathtaking scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the gentle, breaking waves of our ocean coastline.

The Carolina campus features natural beauty and historic and contemporary structures. More than 12,200 staff and faculty and 28,900 undergraduate, graduate and professional students excel in world-class research facilities, excellent libraries and one-of-a-kind historical collections, state-of-the-art living and learning spaces, renowned performing arts venues and a nationally-ranked academic medical center – all right on campus. We hope you’ll join our team.
