Position description

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering invites applications for a pool of temporary research positions (Specialists). Appointments are subject to availability of funding and departmental needs. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies depending on the needs of the department. Temporary research positions may vary from part-time to full-time and may range from short term to long term.

Appointees to the Specialist series engage in specialized research, professional activity, and University and/or public service. Specialists use their professional expertise to make scientific and scholarly contributions to the research enterprise of the University and to achieve recognition in the professional and scientific community. Specialists may participate in University and/or public service depending upon funding source and duties of the position.

[full] Specialists normally provide considerable independent input into the planning and execution of the research, have a significant record of academic accomplishments, including contributions to published research in the field, and a demonstrated record of University and/or public service.

Salary is dependent on experience, qualifications, and hiring level. The UCSB salary scales may be found at: https://ap.ucsb.edu/compensation.and.benefits/ucsb.salary.scales/

The Department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research. We strongly encourage applicants to submit an optional Statement of Contributions to Diversity. These statements, if submitted, will be reviewed for evidence of research contributions that promote diversity and equal opportunity.

The posting will remain open until October 31, 2022 to accommodate department needs. Appointment start date and program duration will be determined when positions become available. The pool will close on October 31, 2022; if you would like to continue to be considered after that time, and the pooled position is advertised again, you will need to submit a new application.

Please note: The use of temporary research titles pool does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. See the “Next Review Date” specified in UC Recruit to learn whether the department is currently reviewing applicants for an upcoming opening. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time.
