Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in the biological or social sciences by the time of appointment.
The UCLA Institute for Society and Genetics (ISG) invites applications for a biological OR social scientist with an innovative research program which complements one of our existing areas of strength. We are seeking to fill a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank to begin in Fall of 2017.
The Institute for Society and Genetics is a department within the school of Life Sciences at UCLA, with a faculty consisting of social scientists, biological scientists and humanities scholars focused on innovative, critical research questions that intersect biology and society. Institute faculty members are generally cross-appointed with another department on campus, and develop research programs that transcend traditional disciplinary lines. ISG seeks to expand its research profile with this hire, in either the biological OR the social sciences (including relevant humanities fields); candidates should demonstrate strong research expertise in an area complementary to the current expertise of ISG faculty. ISG also welcomes applications from other research areas that address complex contemporary problems at the intersection of biology and society.
The preferred candidate will also demonstrate a commitment to mentoring students from underrepresented and underserved populations, or demonstrate an interest in campus-wide or departmental programs that provide research and professional development opportunities for a diverse student body. Please include such statements within your Statement of Contributions to Diversity.
