Staff Positions

Engineering Faculty Positions 

  • Chemical Engineering (1 position) in Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering

    The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering invites applications for an open-rank faculty position in Chemical Engineering.  Junior candidates are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded Chemical Engineering research program while senior candidates must have already demonstrated a record of success in this field.  Areas of interest include research topics complimentary to existing departmental strengths in Chemical Engineering.

  • Computer Engineering in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Control, Robotics, and Autonomy (CORA) - Joint search in Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Departments

    The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Mechanical Engineering (ME) invite applications as part of ongoing efforts to empower and broaden UCR’s current strengths in Control, Robotics, Autonomy, and Machine Intelligence, and foster new cross-disciplinary initiatives both within and outside the college of engineering, for example with the School of Medicine and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences. We seek applicants with complementary expertise to current ECE and ME faculty. We invite applications across the broad areas of Control and Robotics, with particular emphasis on medical robotics, human-robot interaction, micro/soft-robotics, distributed and autonomous systems, and control theory and optimization. We are especially interested in applicants who will be able to create new synergies among the disciplines of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science. Successful candidates are expected to lead cross-disciplinary theoretical and experimental research, and develop courses on Control and Robotics. Applications must be submitted via one of the links provided below. All applications will be reviewed and considered by both departments; thus, applicants need only apply to one department. If so desired, applicants may specify their interest in one or both departments in their cover letter. While applying via AP Recruit, applicants are kindly asked to append “CORA: ” before their dissertation title in the system’s appropriate field. Applicants are also requested to specify their interest in this search explicitly in their cover letter (i.e. Joint ME/ECE Search in Control, Robotics, and Autonomy).  For questions regarding the ME and ECE positions contact mesearch@engr.ucr.edu and ecesearch-robotics@ece.ucr.edu, respectively.

  • E-Health, Nanomedicine and Quantum Materials (1 position) in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
    The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is conducting a faculty search in the area of materials with possible applications in two areas of interest: (1) eHealth / Nanomedicine and (2) Quantum Materials. Applicants in area (1) are expected to pursue collaborative research with UCR's new School of Medicine, which offers the potential for clinical testing. With this position, we seek to complement our existing expertise to create close collaborations with the medical school. Interest in area (2) is driven by the fact that information science is rapidly moving to the quantum world and the realization of solid-state implementations of quantum processing and communication requires high-quality quantum materials. With this position, we seek to expand the existing campus expertise in the area of quantum materials and structures.
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor of Teaching
    The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) invites applications for an Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Teaching (Lecturer with Security of Employment LSOE), beginning the 2018/19 academic year. The appointment requires evidence of a long-standing record of exceptional undergraduate teaching, professional achievement, and service to the academic community. An LSOE is a member of the academic senate and will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and provide university and public services related to the undergraduate program including curriculum development, student advising, ABET accreditation, recruitment outreach etc.. Applicants with strong teaching experience in robotics, circuits and systems, computer engineering, control, signal processing and computer vision are encouraged to apply.
  • Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing (1 position) in Department of Computer Science and Engineering

    The Department of Computer Science & Engineering is conducting a tenured/tenure-track open-rank faculty search in the areas of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Natural Language Processing. A successful candidate will augment our current strengths in machine learning and data mining, and will join an inter-disciplinary team in the newly formed Data Science Center. We welcome candidates whose research focuses on theory, algorithms, applications, or mixtures thereof.

  • Neuroengineering and Imaging (1 position) in Department of Bioengineering 

    The Department of Bioengineering invites applications for a tenure-track or a tenured faculty position. While we are especially interested in the areas of neuro-engineering, imaging, and cellular and molecular engineering, exceptional candidates in other areas of Bioengineering will be considered. We are mainly interested in applicants at the Assistant Professor level; however, exceptional senior applicants at the Associate or Full Professor levels will be considered. Candidates are expected to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations with other departments, and the School of Medicine in particular.

  • Visualization, Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Algorithms (1 position) in Department of Computer Science and Engineering

    The Department of Computer Science & Engineering is conducting a tenured/tenure-track open-rank faculty search in the areas of Visualization, Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual/Augmented Reality, and Algorithms.  A successful candidate will build collaborations with current strengths within the department in graphics, networks, or high-performance computing, or collaborations across the university in the sciences, data analytics, or medicine. We welcome candidates whose research focuses on theory, algorithms, applications, or mixtures thereof.

  • Water Quality Engineering and Technology (1 position) in Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering

    The Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering invites applications for an open-rank faculty position in Environmental Engineering with an emphasis on Water Quality Engineering and Technology.  Junior candidates are expected to develop an internationally recognized and externally funded program with an emphasis in water quality related engineering and technology while senior candidates must have already demonstrated a record of success in this field.  Areas of interest include research topics complimentary to existing departmental strengths in Water Quality Engineering and Technology.
