Position description

University of California, Irvine - FACULTY POSITION IN CHEMISTRY

The Department of Chemistry of the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a tenured faculty position. We seek a senior-level colleague with a vigorous research program in Inorganic Chemistry; candidates with expertise in Inorganic Chemistry, particularly in the synthesis of molecular compounds or materials relevant to quantum science, are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry or a closely related field. Successful candidates will have a strong record of research achievement, enjoy national and international recognition for their scholarship, demonstrate excellent teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and show a strong commitment to service, equal opportunity, diversity, and inclusion. Applications must be submitted electronically at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF07011 and should include a cover letter, a Curriculum vitae (including publication list), and concise research and teaching statements. A separate statement that addresses past and/or potential future contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion also must be included in the application materials. Names of external references may be requested at a later stage. To ensure full consideration, applications and supporting materials should be received by October 15, 2021. A recipient of an NSF ADVANCE award for gender equity, UCI is responsive to the needs of dual career couples, supports work-life balance through an array of family-friendly policies, and is dedicated to broadening participation in higher education.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates/finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
