The position is open at all levels but hiring at the level of assistant professor is preferred.

Specific focus areas include:

(a) System-level chemical engineering, process design, and process modeling,
(b) Materials for large-scale CO2 capture & removal and elemental recovery, and,
(c) Large-scale additive manufacturing of cementitious materials.

The Civil & Environmental Engineering Department and the Institute of Carbon Management (ICM) house comprehensive laboratories that are equipped to carry out pioneering studies relevant to materials design, fabrication, and characterization across length scales. Access is available to high-performance computing (HPC) platforms via university-wide initiatives. The department hosts very highly-selective undergraduate and graduate programs, and is engaged in various research collaborations, both within engineering and with a spectrum of departments and programs at UCLA, across the UC system, and with other universities and across industrial sectors.

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, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists' current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University's Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant 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 Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
