In addition to those with specializations in the above subject areas, and as part of UCLA’s Rising to the Challenge Faculty Hiring Initiative, we are also seeking junior lateral candidates whose scholarly work, teaching and/or mentoring focuses on Black experiences. This search is a partnership between the School of Law and the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies as part of the campus-wide effort to rise to the challenge of racial and social justice at UCLA, sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor and the Executive Vice Chancellor & Provost.
