Open Rank Faculty Positions in Electrical and Computer Engineering

University of California, Los Angeles

Building upon its commitment to foster an inclusive environment and promote the success of underrepresented students, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science invites applications for open rank tenure-track faculty positions.

Applicants for the positions must have a demonstrated record of excellence in, or show exceptional promise for, high-quality research, teaching, and professional development. In addition, applicants must have a demonstrated record of interest in, and commitment to, the mentorship of students from underrepresented and underserved populations. The successful candidate will be expected to advance their active mentoring activities and participate in programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for our diverse student body (such as our Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity, our Women in Engineering program, and our student organizations listed at https://samueli.ucla.edu/equity-diversity-and-inclusion/). Teaching and service expectations will not exceed those of other faculty positions. Applications will be considered at all levels, with a preference for appointments at the Assistant Professor level.

Applicants must have an earned PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering or closely related discipline at date of hire. The Department is interested in all areas of research traditionally associated with Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as emerging cross-disciplinary areas. We are interested in outstanding candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching and scholarship and to a diverse campus climate.

Application packages should be submitted online through https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF06862 and include the following documents: 1) curriculum vitae, 2) statement of contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion with particular attention to mentoring achievements and future mentoring goals, 3) statement of research interest, 4) statement of teaching interest, and 5) a cover letter.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2021 and continue until the positions are filled.
