The Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) in the Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) invites applications as part of our ongoing efforts to build upon UCR’s strengths and foster innovative new cross-disciplinary initiatives, both within and outside of BCOE (e.g., with UCR’s School of Medicine, or the College of Natural & Agricultural Sciences). We invite applications across the board in the areas of Robotics, Energy, and/or Health. The successful candidates will receive a primary appointment within ME; however, opportunities may exist for additional affiliations with other departments and programs at UCR.
The Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering is a well-established, rapidly growing college at UCR. Ranked in the top 20 best public global universities for engineering by U.S. News & World Report, BCOE has 138 faculty members, more than 3,400 undergraduate students, 1,000 graduate students, and more than $44 million in total annual research expenditures. The college is home to five departments, 11 undergraduate degree programs, 10 graduate degree programs, and 11 research centers.
Successful candidates will have a proven record of, or exceptional promise for, developing a vibrant externally funded research program and developing a portfolio of high-quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. UC Faculty are expected to maintain an active research agenda and record of publications; teach a regular course load at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; and to participate in service activities at department, college, campus, and professional levels. Candidates should also demonstrate clear potential for complementing and/or synergistically leveraging existing research activities within the department, college, and campus. Appointments are expected to begin July 1, 2023. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience. Candidates must have met the requirements for the Ph.D. by the time of appointment. Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
