Associate Professor in Residence

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


The responsibilities of this 25% Associate Professor in Residence position include research, teaching and mentoring, as well as university and public service at the same level of performance as those holding corresponding titles in the professor series in the School of Education (SOE) at UC Davis.

Research responsibilities will include maintaining an active program of research on equity and K-12 school reforms, adolescent well-being, as well as community youth development policy and implementation. Research expectations consistent with Associate Professors within the SOE will include: publication of peer reviewed manuscripts, book chapters and other working papers, as well as presentations at relevant conferences in the field. Since this program of research is aligned with the work of various faculty and centers in the School of Education this may involve collaboration with the Center for Transformative Justice in Education, the Center for Community and Citizen Science, CAPEd and Wheelhouse as well as other individual faculty. This may also involve collaborations with other units within UC Davis including but not limited to Global Affairs and Student Services. Grant writing and obtaining external funding for research is an essential part of the research responsibilities for this position since the In Residence appointment does not carry either tenure or security of appointment. Consequently, APM 270-17-b-2 recommends that appointments with no specific ending date to this series be made only when there is reasonable expectation of external funding.

Teaching responsibilities will include offering an average of two courses a year on topics including but not limited to K-13 School Reform, the Social Foundations of Education, Schooling in Community Contexts, Youth Engagement, Qualitative Methods, and/or participatory action research as it relates to education in community planning and decisions. These courses may be taught in the Undergraduate Program, Teacher Education Program, or the PhD or the EdD Graduate Programs. In some years one course may be a new SOE offering on Nepal: Community Technology and Sustainability offered on campus and virtually linked to a parallel course taught in Nepal. This course will provide learning opportunities in cross cultural community engaged education and research on professional development. Teaching responsibilities may also involve graduate student mentoring in research for the PhD, EdD or Master's Teacher Education program. These responsibilities include recruiting and mentoring students within the in residence faculty members' program of research. It may also include membership in faculty-student advisory committees, membership on qualifying examination committees, membership on thesis committees or membership on dissertation committees.

Service responsibilities may include but not be limited to membership on School of Education recruitment advisory committees, curriculum development or oversight committees, and graduate group committees. Service may also include university level committee work. It is recognized, however, that service to the university will be consistent with this 25% appointment.
