Position description

University of California -Santa Barbara (UCSB), College of Engineering's Department of Technology Management invites applications for an open-rank position in the area of technology and organizations with a research focus on technology, AI, and the future of work. The position has a start date of July 1, 2024, or later. Successful applicants will contribute to the exciting intellectual environment within the Department of Technology Management and contribute meaningfully to its strategic initiatives and programmatic activities. The selected candidate is expected to play a key role in the growth of the department and to participate in departmental service appropriate for their rank. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service as appropriate to the position.

The Department of Technology Management resides in UCSB’s highly ranked College of Engineering, where it offers a successful professional master’s degree, a Ph.D. program, and undergraduate and graduate certificates. Core faculty in the Department of Technology Management include: Matthew Beane, Sukhun Kang, Paul Leonardi, Kyle Lewis, Nelson Phillips, Renee Rottner Jessica Santana, and Mary Tripsas; all of whose research and teaching reflect the unit’s intentional interdisciplinary character.

In 2023-24, a wide array of UC Santa Barbara departments are partnering with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to launch a special faculty recruitment initiative named after Benjamin Banneker, the 18th-century African American mathematician, astronomer, anti-racist, engineer, ecologist, and peace advocate. Funded by an Advancing Faculty Diversity grant from the UC Office of the President, with the goal of diversifying faculty, research, and curriculum in STEM (and related) fields, the Banneker Initiative aims to recruit scholars, scientists, and engineers whose disciplinary and interdisciplinary work would take place within the community of interests exemplified by Banneker’s intellectual, ethical, and social commitments as an African American scientist. Applicants may be eligible to be fellows in the Benjamin Banneker Initiative. The community of Banneker Fellows will receive funding for cohort building and professional development activities, including enrollment in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Faculty Success Program, proposal writing training, and seed grants.
