Assistant Professor of Sustainable Aquaculture and Coastal Systems

Department of Environmental Science & Policy,
University of California, Davis

Position Description

As part of UC Davis' commitment to hire leading research faculty with an outstanding commitment to teaching, research and service that will promote the success of historically underrepresented and marginalized student communities and address the needs of our increasingly diverse state and student population, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, at the University of California announces an Assistant Professor faculty position (9-month in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy, based at Bodega Marine Laboratory). This position is part of the UC Davis "Sustainable Marine Resources Initiative: The Future of Food from the Sea," coordinated by the Coastal and Marine Sciences Institute. Applications are encouraged from candidates with a strong background in any current or emerging area that will fit within our department's disciplinary focus in sustainable aquaculture and coastal systems.

This is an academic year (9-month), Assistant Professor tenure-track position with teaching, research, outreach/engagement and service responsibilities. As one of the country's leading R1 institutions, UC Davis seeks candidates with exceptional potential for research, teaching, 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. Successful candidates will help advance UC Davis' strategic goal of improving access and building an inclusive community for all marginalized populations. The successful candidate also 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.

To ensure consideration, applications should be received by 3 January 2021. Additional inquiries can be directed to John Largier (jlargier@ucdavis.edu) or Anne Todgham (todgham@ucdavis.edu).
