SUBJECT: New Faculty Fellows Program
The University of California has approved and permanently funded a new Faculty Fellows Program. The purpose of the new program is to provide new UC Ph.D.s with mentored training and experience in the design and conduct of instructional courses and research; and provide high-quality teaching of undergraduate courses to help accommodate projected large undergraduate enrollment growth over the next decade.
It is anticipated that five to six new awards will be made each year. Faculty Fellows will have a research and a teaching mentor (who may be the same person). Fellows will be appointed at 100% time and typically will devote half time to undergraduate teaching and half time to research. Salary will be $35,940 (plus the October 1, 2000 range adjustment) for nine months. Faculty Fellows may be appointed for up to two ninths in the summer with funding from grants or discretionary departmental resources.
Nominees must (1) demonstrate promise for excellence in both teaching and research and (2) have earned or are projected to earn a Ph.D. at the University of California between January 1, 2000, and the start date of the Faculty Fellow appointment. U.C. M.F.A.s also are eligible to be nominated at UCSD if the nominating department employs ladder-rank faculty with M.F.A.s in the nominee's subfield.
UCSD Ph.D.s may be considered for these awards at any of the eight UC general campuses. At UCSD, nominating departments are restricted to General Campus departments with both graduate and undergraduate instructional programs. UCSD departments are to submit nominations to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research by the following deadlines:
October 13, 2000 for awards starting Winter 2001 and ending Spring 2002
