The School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, is seeking outstanding applicants for a teaching position in Pharmaceutics & Pharmacokinetics within the Department of Clinical Pharmacy Practice. The School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences is one of the five units under the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences.

Candidates at the assistant, associate or full professor rank will be considered, with the potential for security of employment. Teaching Professors are full members of the Academic Senate.
A successful candidate will be expected to provide didactic lectures to PharmD students in various areas of pharmaceutics including dosage form design, compounding (sterile and non-sterile), calculations, basic pharmacokinetics and clinical pharmacokinetics. The candidate will also coordinate and conduct pharmaceutics laboratory courses. In addition, the candidate will participate in teaching within the School’s postgraduate research program. 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 recognized contributions to research/creative activity in the discipline and/or in pedagogy.
This position will report to the Chair of the Department of Clinical Pharmacy Practice.
Salary and appointment level will be commensurate with qualifications and experience and based on published UC pay scales. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled.
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 as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve 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 Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
