    Assistant Teaching Professor
    The Assistant Teaching Professor position is a full-time Academic Senate faculty position with potential for security of employment akin to tenure. Applicants should demonstrate a record of teaching excellence relevant to Psychology and the potential to contribute to the scholarly, mentoring, and service missions of our Department and University. We seek applications from individuals with expertise in research-informed pedagogy to improve the inclusivity and effectiveness of instruction for all students, including those from underserved populations. Applicants from all fields of Psychology are encouraged to apply.

    All application materials for the Assistant Teaching Professor position should be submitted electronically at: by October 1, 2023.



    UC Davis is one of the country’s leading research institutions with a diverse student population. It is an emerging

    Hispanic-Serving Institution, with a majority of students identifying as members of historically marginalized groups, and

    over 40% of the students being first-generation college students. We seek candidates with exceptional potential for

    teaching and a commitment to diversity and inclusion.


    The successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of members

    from student communities historically excluded from higher education, including (but not limited to) individuals

    marginalized due to their race or ethnicity, LGBTQIA+ status, veterans, individuals with disabilities, individuals from

    economically disadvantaged groups, first-generation scholars, and undocumented students. In addition to being

    exceptional scholars, successful candidates will help advance UC Davis’s goal of improving access and building an

    inclusive community for all marginalized communities. The successful candidate will also have a track record (calibrated to career stage) of teaching or service activities addressing the needs of individuals historically excluded from higher education, and a clear vision of how their work at UC Davis will contribute to the University’s mission of serving the needs of our diverse state and student population.


    The department and UC Davis are committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples

    and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths, who have taken

    time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia. For information about

    benefits, potential relocation to Davis, career needs of accompanying partners and spouses, and other resources for

    new faculty, please visit:


    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, UC Davis conducts a

    reference check on all first-choice candidates for Academic Senate Assistant Professor or Lecturer with Potential for

    Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6, or Acting Professor of Law positions. The reference check involves 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 Davis requires all

    applicants for any open search for assistant professor to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to

    Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization

    with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application,

    will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire

    application, only finalists considered for these positions (Step 4, 5, or 6) will be subject to reference checks.
