The Ethnic Studies Department and the Global Health Program invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Teaching Professor position (also termed Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment, LPSOE), with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024.
The Assistant Teaching Professor or LPSOE series parallels that of the research-focused series but with emphasis upon excellence in teaching and other instruction-related activities. Individuals in the position are expected to provide outstanding teaching, as well as to engage in professional activity and service related to the pedagogical mission of the program and university. This appointment confers membership in the Academic Senate, and, contingent upon promotion, tenure-paralleling security of employment.
We seek candidates who will be able to contribute to the BS in Ethnic Studies: Critical Health and Medical Sciences (CHAMS) and to the full range of Global Health degree programs including Minor, BA, BS, and MA.
Preferred candidates will have strong demonstrated accomplishments in areas contributing to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a desire to play a leadership role in advancing UC San Diego’s commitment to achieving excellence and diversity. We especially welcome candidates whose professional experience and community engagement have facilitated their understanding of and ability to better serve students from traditionally underrepresented communities in higher education.
Faculty are expected to have an inclusive approach to mentoring and advising that incorporates working with underrepresented genders and underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students. This position will include an appointment in the Department of Ethnic Studies and in the Global Health Program.
Applications received by 11/19/2023 will be given full consideration. However, the position will remain open until filled.
Salary is commensurate with experience and based on the University of California pay scales.
