The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) invites applications for three open-rank faculty positions in Water Quality Engineering and Technology, Air Quality and Climate, and Advanced Materials beginning the 2018/19 academic year. Junior candidates are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded research program in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Senior candidates must have a demonstrated record of success in one of the appropriate fields. All candidates must have a doctorate in a relevant discipline (Chemical/Environmental Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Environmental Science, Chemistry, or closely related) and be strongly committed to both undergraduate and graduate teaching.

UCR is implementing a major expansion of faculty and investing in state-of-the-art research facilities to support their work. This expansion will build critical mass in vital and emerging fields of scholarship, foster truly cross-disciplinary work, and further diversify the faculty at one of America’s most diverse research universities. We encourage applications from scholars committed to excellence in research and teaching and to helping define the university for future generations. Details and application materials can be found at http://www.engr.ucr.edu/about/employment.html. Full consideration will be given to applications received by December 31, 2017. Applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled. 

Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input. UCR is a world-class research university with an exceptionally diverse undergraduate student body. Its mission is explicitly linked to providing routes to educational success for underrepresented and first-generation college students. A commitment to this mission is a preferred qualification.
