Applications are invited for a Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment or Lecturer with Security of Employment position in the department of Chemical Engineering at UC Davis. The successful candidates will be outstanding educators and should provide evidence of effective and innovative teaching in chemical and/or biochemical engineering. In addition to teaching courses, candidates are expected to lead the development and assessment of a new Master of Engineering (MEng) program in Chemical Engineering.
