UC Davis Dept. of Entomology and Nematology Seeks Assistant Professor of Teaching
Position Title: 
Assistant Professor of Teaching 



Position Summary:
As part of UC Davis’ commitment to hire leading research faculty with an outstanding commitment to teaching, research and service that will promote the success of historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities and address the needs of our increasingly diverse state and student population, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, at the University of California announces an Assistant Professor of Teaching faculty position (9-month) in the Department of Entomology and Nematology. Applications are encouraged from candidates with a strong background in teaching that fits within our department’s disciplinary focus for the undergraduate majors in entomology and animal biology.
This is an academic year (9-month) appointment with potential for security of employment (similar to tenure- track) with teaching, research, outreach/engagement and service responsibilities.
As one of the country’s leading R1 institutions, UC Davis seeks candidates with exceptional potential for research, teaching, and inclusive excellence. In addition, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of members from historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities in higher education, such as (but not limited to) women, underrepresented minorities, individuals self-identifying as LGBTQIA+, veterans, individuals with disabilities, economically disadvantaged groups, first-generation, undocumented students, or students with any intersections in between. Successful candidates will help advance UC Davis’ strategic goal of improving access and building an inclusive community for all marginalized populations. The successful candidate also will have an accomplished track record (calibrated to career stage) of teaching, research, or service activities addressing the needs of underrepresented minorities, and a clearly articulated vision of how their work at UC Davis will continue to contribute to the University’s mission of serving the needs of our diverse state and student population. Applicants’ track record of engagement and activity related to diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion as well as their plans for future engagement will be a significant part of the overall evaluation of the candidate’s qualifications for a faculty appointment.
Applicants should submit materials via the following website:
https://recruit.ucdavis.edu. Additional inquiries can be directed to (Dr. Diane Ullman, deullman@ucdavis.edu).
The position will remain open until filled but to ensure consideration, applications should be received by 12/31/22.

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 FacultyCode of Conduct.
