Description

The Office of Research Affairs, at the University of California, San Diego, in support of the campus, multidisciplinary Organized Research Units (ORUs) is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured, Assistant, Associate or Full level) in various academic disciplines. At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team, but are not necessarily leaders of the research team.

They are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series. University and public service are encouraged but not required, and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding.

Required Qualification: Doctorate degree or its equivalent in a related field of study. Appointment level is dependent on academic experience, scholarly achievements, and needs of the ORU.

Preferred Qualification: Postdoctoral or equivalent experience, commitment to a research program, funding, mentoring/training, university and community service, and to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

Review of applications will commence on July 17, 2020 and will be ongoing. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on published University of California pay scales. Applications (CV, Research Statement, and Cover letter, at minimum) must be submitted to the UCSD on-line application collection system, AP-On-Line Recruit, at: https://apol-recruit.ucsd.edu/JPF02502.

The Office of Research Affairs at UC San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the academic, staff, and student body. This academic series is represented by the United Auto Workers of America (UAW) and information about the collective bargaining agreement is available on the UCOP website.
