Invitation for faculty position applications
UC Berkeley is one of the world’s premier public universities, and Berkeley Engineering maintains top rankings among engineering programs nationally, public or private. Located in the heart of California’s tech industry, Berkeley Engineering hosts a vibrant and growing community of faculty and students and enjoys close relationships with National Laboratories, NASA, UC San Francisco, Silicon Valley and more. Our talent for developing technologies that improve society and quality of life is reflected in the members of our community and our physical environment. We offer dynamic, interdisciplinary, hands-on education; challenge conventional thinking; and value collaboration, creativity and innovation in research and teaching.
Berkeley Engineering’s mission is to educate inclusive leaders, create knowledge equitably, and serve a diverse society. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students and staff who share our commitment to these values. As a leading institution in engineering education, both nationally and internally, we seek candidates whose commitment to mentorship and service match their excellence in research and teaching. This includes candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion as UC Berkeley works to become a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), reflecting California’s population. Resources are available to pursue activities that help accelerate our efforts to achieve greater inclusion and belonging in engineering, with the full backing of the college. Examples of ongoing programming at the college to promote diversity, equity and inclusion are available on our website.
Berkeley Engineering is also committed to addressing family needs, including dual career couples, single parents and those who provide elder care. For more information, please visit the Office for Faculty Equity & Welfare.
We invite applications to open faculty positions in Berkeley Engineering and strongly encourage applications from individuals from underrepresented groups in engineering. New job announcements are added throughout the year, so please check back regularly for updates. Note that each job listing has its own application deadline and requirements; please refer to specific details in each announcement.
