Applications are invited for a Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment or Lecturer with Security of Employment position in the department of Chemical Engineering at UC Davis. The successful candidates will be outstanding educators and should provide evidence of effective and innovative teaching in chemical and/or biochemical engineering. In addition to teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, candidates are expected to lead the development and assessment of a new Master of Engineering (MEng) program in chemical engineering. The one-year Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree enables students to fit their interests and goals with a flexible, tailorable course work that culminates in specialization in biotechnology, process engineering, or computational methods. The successful candidate will participate in continuous curriculum improvement, and diversity and inclusion efforts in the program and department.

We are searching for innovative and collaborative researchers and educators who would seek interdisciplinary collaborations within the department and the campus.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering or a closely related field, excellence in research that complements or extends existing research strengths in the Department of Chemical Engineering, and be committed to excellence in teaching and pedagogical development. Candidates must demonstrate potential or evidence of ability to teach well at both graduate and undergraduate levels and to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses or seminars. Participation in department, college, and university service is an expectation under our faculty shared governance model. We seek candidates who aspire to help advance UC Davis’ strategic goal of improving access and building an inclusive community for all marginalized populations, and who demonstrate commitment to, or strong potential for commitment to the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion for historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities.  We seek candidates dedicated to educating a student body rich in diversity with respect to gender, ethnicity, first-generation status, socioeconomic status, and academic inclusiveness.
