As part of UC Davis commitment to hire faculty with a strong commitment to teaching, research and service that address the needs of our increasingly diverse state and student population, the College of Biological Sciences announces an Assistant Professor of Teaching faculty position in the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. Professors of Teaching are Academic Senate faculty members whose expertise and responsibilities center on undergraduate education and scholarly analysis/improvement of teaching methods. The successful applicant will teach both lower and upper division undergraduate lecture and laboratory courses within the NPB major. They will also be expected to play a leadership role in the scholarship of teaching and learning, work with other faculty to develop, implement and assess new pedagogical initiatives, and develop a successful discipline-based educational research program.

As one of the country s leading R1 institutions, UC Davis seeks candidates with exceptional teaching, educational research 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. The successful candidate 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.

The official title of the position is Lecturer with the Potential for Security of Employment (LPSOE). LPSOEs are Academic Senate faculty members eligible for promotion to Security of Employment, which is analogous to tenure.

Minimum Qualifications

* Teaching large undergraduate classes.
* Experiential learning.
