Job Description:

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of California (UC), Santa Cruz invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor for Field Biology. The primary focus of this position is the teaching of introductory field courses within the undergraduate curriculum in EEB, including student-centered, inquiry-based courses with overnight field trips. A key aspect of the position is guiding student-led research projects on a wide range of organisms and habitats. The successful candidate should be a skilled instructor with experience in immersive field-based teaching, who is familiar with evidence-based pedagogy and learning assessment methodologies and is innovative and entrepreneurial with respect to developing instructional initiatives. As a member of the Academic Senate, the successful candidate will be an important resource for undergraduate curriculum development and will participate in departmental and university committees as needed to enhance teaching and learning. The successful candidate will share evidence-based teaching methods and be a resource for innovative teaching practices, particularly in field-based learning. The successful candidate must demonstrate professional achievement and intellectual leadership through publication, creative accomplishments, or other professional/scholarly activity. Such activity may include mentoring undergraduate field research projects that lead to publications and/or conducting STEM education research.
UC Santa Cruz values diversity, equity, and inclusion and is committed to hiring faculty who support these values. UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) with a high proportion of first-generation students. The successful candidate will clearly articulate an understanding of the barriers facing individuals from groups underrepresented in STEM and in higher education and will leverage innovative teaching practices to reduce gaps among students from different educational backgrounds. We particularly seek candidates who have experience in equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. Activities promoting equity and inclusion at UC Santa Cruz will be recognized as important university service during the faculty promotion process. More information can be found at .
The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)
