Position Description


The Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a position as an assistant, associate or full teaching professor, with a focus area of experiential learning in engineering. The selected candidate will direct and teach in the Baskin School of Engineering’s Senior Design program , where teams of senior level students design and construct substantial projects during a two-quarter project sequence. Many projects are performed in collaboration with stakeholders from outside UCSC. The selected candidate will also participate in the direction and potentially the teaching of the Baskin School of Engineering’s First Year Design program. We seek candidates with experience directing multiple simultaneous engineering teams who possess a track record of collaboration with commercial, non-profit, or educational groups. We also seek candidates with a strong background in one or more of the areas of focus of the Baskin Engineering Senior Design program, which include software engineering, systems engineering, computer systems design, web and mobile application design, engineering design, product design, service design, electrical systems design, mechatronics, cyber-physical systems, bioinformatics, networking, and computer games. We are especially interested in candidates who are familiar with educational research concerning capstone design programs, first year design, experiential learning, and entrepreneurial thinking.

The selected candidate is expected to work in collaboration with participating departments in the Baskin School of Engineering to develop an updated educational vision for an interdisciplinary and deeply inclusive and equitable capstone senior design program with strong connections to local nonprofit organizations and industrial partners. The selected candidate is also expected to develop an educational research program, supported by external grants, focused on the senior design program or other experiential learning programs.

We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing traditionally underrepresented groups in higher education, and who have engaged in teaching, research, professional and/or public service contributions that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. These can take a variety of forms such as, but not limited to, effective pedagogical strategies used for the educational advancement of students in underrepresented groups; demonstrated contributions to the advancement of access and equal opportunity in education; and participation in activities that support the recruitment, retention, and success of scholars and students.

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.)
