The Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is seeking stellar applicants for the position of Professor of Teaching at the Assistant Professor rank. Successful candidates will be responsible for teaching in the undergraduate and graduate level prelicensure and doctoral programs.

Appointment, merit, and promotion in the Professor of Teaching series requires, in addition to excellence in teaching and service, that the candidate makes outstanding and externally recognized contributions in research/creative activity in pedagogy and/or the discipline. This position parallels the tenure-track faculty series. The search is inviting applicants at the Assistant level, which includes potential for security of employment (analogous to pre-tenure). This is a full-time faculty position designed for individuals who wish to focus their careers on teaching, professional activities, and University and public service, with some focus on research. Professors of Teaching are members of the University of California Academic Senate and have all the usual benefits of Senate membership.

The successful candidate will play a significant role in the prelicensure programs.

Both in-person and online classes are taught in the UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing. This position requires teaching excellence, public service, and engagement in original scholarship/creative activity, with emphasis on nursing education. The standard teaching load for a Professor of Teaching is 6 courses per calendar year.

The final candidate will join a welcoming and supportive community of clinical and teaching-oriented faculty, senate research faculty, and continuing lecturers.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE POSITION: Candidates must have a PhD, DNP, or EdD degree, and be eligible to be a California licensed Registered Nurse (RN) with a California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) Public Health Nurse Certification. Applicants should possess excellent oral and written communication, and pedagogical skills. Experience with didactic teaching in community health/public health nursing, and evidence of scholarly activities. Multiple BRN specialty approvals preferred.
Candidates must show evidence of collaborative interdisciplinary partnerships that advance the science of improving health outcomes for individuals, families, and communities, and of teaching the next generation of nursing professionals. Qualified applicants must have the demonstrated ability to work with a diverse group of colleagues and to teach and mentor a diverse student body.

DUTIES: Teaching in the prelicensure programs, either, or a combination of, medical-surgical, pediatric, maternal/newborn, community, or psychiatric mental health nursing and, if appropriate, courses in the doctoral programs. Conducting original scholarship/creative activity and providing service are also expected.
