Position description

The Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) invites applications for all levels but hiring at the level of assistant professor is preferred.

The Department is seeking outstanding candidates with a demonstrated track record in, or show exceptional promise for exceptional and innovative research, excellence in teaching, professional service, and as well as commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Applicants must have an earned PhD in any related discipline in quantum science and engineering, (e. g, Electrical and Computer Engineering, computer Science, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Physics) at date of hire. Beyond the traditional departments, the School will consider applications in all areas of research associated with Quantum Science and Engineering, as well as emerging cross-disciplinary areas, we are particularly interested in the following areas:

▪ Quantum physics, materials, devices, engineering, and systems
▪ Semiconductor and solid-state materials and devices, and fabrication technologies
▪ Quantum sensing, quantum internet and networking, computing, and systems
▪ Computing architecture, methods, algorithms, and quantum error correction schemes.
▪ New directions and approaches for qubits and scalable quantum systems

To help with the evaluation, we would like all candidates to indicate interest/expertise in up to three (3) topical areas specified, both in your cover letter and within the application portal.

Application packages should be submitted online through https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF07922 and include the following documents: 1) curriculum vitae, 2) statement of research interest, 3) statement of contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion, 4) statement of teaching interest, 5) a cover letter. 3-5 references are required (contact information only), and 6) reference check authorization release form .

 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, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant 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 Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
