The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Teaching with a target start date of July 1, 2024. Professors of Teaching are hired under the Lecturer with Security of Employment series at the University of California and are full members of the Academic Senate. Assistant Professors of Teaching, upon promotion to Associate Professor of Teaching, receive security of employment, which is comparable to tenure. Appointment, merit, and promotion in the Professor of Teaching series requires, in addition to excellence in teaching and service, that the candidate makes outstanding and externally recognized contributions in research/creative activity in pedagogy and/or the discipline.
Responsibilities will include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in chemical and biomolecular engineering; developing, supporting, and assessing best practices for education across the department; evaluating and deploying new and emerging instructional tools and resources; and leading undergraduate accreditation initiatives. We seek candidates with a doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering or a closely related field. Candidates should demonstrate evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Postdoctoral experience and a proven teaching record at the university level are highly desirable. Preference will be given to candidates who have innovative ideas for lecture and laboratory instruction and for the development of courses relevant to graduate professional degree programs.
