This search is for exceptional faculty candidates in all areas of chemical engineering as well as disciplines related to chemical engineering with applications to chemical engineering.

Candidates whose technical interests complement and augment the Department’s existing strengths and are well-positioned to develop collaborations as part of multidisciplinary research teams are of particular interest.

Los Angeles is a global city renowned for its dynamism, robust economy, rich cultural diversity and spectacular climate. UCLA has been ranked the No. 1 public university in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for seven straight years. UCLA Samueli is a tightly-knit community with more than 6,500 undergraduate and graduate students, nearly 200 full-time faculty members, and is in the midst of its largest growth since the school was founded in 1945. The school is consistently ranked in the top 10 among U.S. public engineering schools and its master’s online program is ranked No. 1 overall by U.S. News & World Report. UCLA Samueli is known as the birthplace of the internet, and where countless other fields took some of their first steps – from artificial intelligence to reverse osmosis, from mobile communications to human prosthetics. UCLA Samueli is deeply committed to diversifying the ranks of its faculty, staff and students, and to providing an equitable and inclusive environment for all its members.

The posted UC salary scales set the minimum pay determined by rank and/or step at appointment.

Please be advised that the final candidate recommended for hire into a critical (or otherwise designated) position will be required to successfully complete a background investigation. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position.

With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
