Provost's Diversity in Egnineering Fellows (PDEF) Program
Junior applicants with potential home department in the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering should also be aware about the Provost’s Diversity in Engineering Fellows (PDEF) program. This new initiative, created in collaboration with the University of California Office of the President (UCOP), is aimed at supporting emerging scholars as they transition into the professoriate. In addition to a tenure track faculty position and up to one year of funding toward postdoctoral training, participants receive professional development and research funds to assist them to have a successful career in academia. Qualified candidates must demonstrate exceptional promise for, or have a proven record of, conducting independent high-quality published research and teaching, securing external funding, and collaborating across disciplines.  Candidates must also have evidence of a commitment to diversity such as engagement with diverse populations of students, role modeling, and mentoring. To be considered for the Provost's Diversity in Engineering Fellows Program, please indicate interest in your cover letter. This program is currently closed. Please check back for the next opening of this program. 

The University of California at Riverside (UCR) is embarking on a major new hiring initiative that will add 300 tenured and tenure-track positions in 33 cross-disciplinary areas selected through a peer-reviewed competition. Over the next three years, we will hire multiple faculty members in each area and invest in research infrastructure to support their work. This initiative will build critical mass in vital and emerging fields of scholarship, foster truly cross-disciplinary work and further diversify the faculty at one of America’s most diverse research universities. We encourage applications from scholars committed to excellence and seeking to help redefine the research university for the next generation.

We seek applicants who will complement the highly motivated and entrepreneurial spirit of the College faculty, and who will contribute meaningfully to the success of future teaching, research, and service accomplishments. Incumbents are expected to initiate and sustain strong sponsored research and graduate training programs.
