    Position description

    Assistant Professor in Science Education

    DESCRIPTION The School of Education at the University of California, Irvine is carrying out a search for a faculty member in the area of science education. We are interested in candidates whose research contributes to expanding the learning opportunities of minoritized communities, addresses racial and socio-economic inequities, and supports educators to build on students and communities' cultural and linguistic assets and advocate for diversity, equity, and social justice. We welcome applicants from any disciplinary perspective and methodological tradition, whose scholarship focuses on science teaching and learning at any level of K-12 schooling and/or any stage of the teacher education continuum, from teacher preparation, to professional development, to supporting the development of teacher educators. Candidates will be expected to contribute their expertise to our CalTeach and MAT teacher preparation programs as well as our undergraduate and PhD programs. A successful candidate will have experience and/or interest in engaging with local partnerships via existing networks and university centers.

    The School of Education at UC Irvine has devoted substantial resources to supporting research on teaching and learning, and engaging with the diverse surrounding communities to promote research-practice partnerships and professional development opportunities for educators across the K-12 continuum (https:// education.uci.edu/communityengagement.html). UCI is home to a vibrant, collaborative research community committed to improving science education. The Center for Research on Teacher Development and Professional Practice fosters collaboration among faculty, students, and practitioners on projects focused on a variety of aspects of teacher development and learning and on the study of teaching and teacher professional practice. The Orange County Education Advancement Network is a network of partnerships between the School of Education and local K-12 schools and non-profit organizations that engage in actionable scholarship to positively impact the diverse communities of Orange County and Southern California. The Teacher Academy offers teachers and educational leaders with professional learning opportunities to improve instructional practice to advance equity and justice in K-12 contexts. The Center for Educational Partnerships hosts the UCI Science Project, a California subject matter program.

    We welcome applications at the Assistant Professor level. Applicants should have a PhD or EdD by July 1, 2022 and a record of scholarship, teaching and mentorship, and service commensurate to their career stage.

    Application and Review Full consideration will be given to complete applications received by November 5, 2021, but screening will continue until the position is filled. Completed applications should include: • a cover letter explaining research interests • curriculum vitae • a separate teaching statement • a separate statement that addresses past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion (for more information, see https: // ap.uci.edu/faculty/guidance/ieactivities/ and https: // ap.uci.edu/faculty/guidance/iecontributions/) • 3 relevant publications/papers • The names and contact information of three references (letters of recommendation will be solicited for a selected number of applicants)

    Applications must be uploaded electronically through the on-line Recruit system: https: // recruit.ap.uci.edu/JPF07173

    Inquiries about the position may be directed to Search Committee Chair Rossella Santagata (r.santagata@uci.edu) or Tammy Ho (tammy.ho@uci.edu). For more information on the UCI School of Education, see www. education.uci.edu. The University of California, Irvine is Hispanic- and Asian-American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution that is consistently ranked as the top university in the country providing opportunity to low- income learners. UCI is located in Orange County, a highly diverse community with more than 25 colleges, ten of which are part of the California State University or California Community College systems.

    The University of California, Irvine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer advancing inclusive excellence. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, or other protected categories covered by the UC nondiscrimination policy. 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.
