New Tenure-Track Faculty Opportunity

  • UCLA recruiting new faculty in transportation engineering, policy & equity

    Seeking a transportation/infrastructure scholar working at the intersection of engineering and policy, with an explicit focus on equity — both by increasing transportation benefits enjoyed by Black and other marginalized travelers and by decreasing the harms transportation systems disproportionately impose on Black and disadvantaged communities. This faculty search is a partnership among the Departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Public Policy and the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies, as part of the campuswide effort to rise to the challenge of racial and social justice at UCLA, sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor and the Executive Vice Chancellor & Provost.
