University of California, Davis
Open date: September 6, 2023
Next review date: Sunday, Oct 1, 2023 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)
Apply by this date to ensure full consideration by the committee.
Final date: Sunday, Jun 30, 2024 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)
Applications will continue to be accepted until this date, but those received after the review date will only be considered if the position has not yet been filled.
Applicants are required to submit a research statement describing their research to date and future research goals, and a contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) statement describing (a) their track record of engagement and activity related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as (b) their plans for future engagement (see https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/guidelines-writing-diversity-statement for guidance and information about the university’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion). The DEI statement will be carefully read as a standalone document and should, therefore, include all relevant information related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, even if aspects are also discussed in other submitted materials.
The first round of review will focus exclusively on the research statement and the DEI statement. We will anonymize both statements to reduce potential for bias based on an applicant’s identity, including their mentor(s) and university affiliations. In addition, applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a teaching statement describing their experience as well as perspectives and practices related to effective teaching, up to three representative publications (or preprints), and names and contact information for at least three individuals who
may be asked to submit letters of recommendation. All application materials should be submitted electronically at: https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF05981.
The start date for this position is July 1, 2024. The position will remain open until filled. Applications must be submitted by October 1, 2023 for full consideration. Applications submitted after this date may not be considered. If you have any questions about the search or position, feel free to contact the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Petr Janata (email@example.com), or any member of the search committee: Dr. Erie Boorman (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr. Joy Geng (email@example.com), Dr. Andrew Fox (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dr. Lindsay Bowman (email@example.com), Dr. Jingwen Zhang (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Yicong (Alan) Zheng (email@example.com) .
The department and UC Davis are committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths, who have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia. For information about benefits, potential relocation to Davis, career needs of accompanying partners and spouses, and other resources for new faculty, please visit: https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/new-faculty.
The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference check on all first-choice candidates for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions. The reference check involves contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for assistant professor to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions will be subject to reference checks.
