Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering
University of California, Davis
Applications are invited for a faculty position as a Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment (LPSOE) or Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE) in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at the University of California, Davis.
This position has primary responsibilities in undergraduate teaching, particularly in the area of engineering design and communication. The successful candidate will teach the first-year introduction to engineering design course administered by the department for the College of Engineering and other courses in the Biological Systems Engineering (EBS) curriculum, participate in continuous curriculum improvement, develop additional design experiences in the EBS curriculum, advise student research and design projects, lead accreditation activities, and lead diversity and inclusion efforts. We are particularly seeking faculty who have demonstrably shown evidence of a strong commitment towards expanding opportunities for women and underrepresented groups in the engineering sciences. The candidate is also expected to engage in scholarly creative activity in pedagogical and curricular innovation. The candidate should have a strong teaching record and commitment to undergraduate instruction. A Ph.D. in engineering or equivalent is required. Clearly demonstrated evidence of excellent teaching and pedagogical innovation are required. Experience in engineering design is required and a background in teaching technical communication is preferred. This is a non-tenure track position but does include the potential for security of employment. Appointment at the LPSOE or LSOE level will depend on qualifications of the applicant.
