Future Faculty Lectures
The UCLA Samueli Future Faculty Lectures is an opportunity for PhD students and postdoctoral scholars interested in faculty positions to personally assess how they fit within the UCLA Samueli community. Selected participants will be invited to give an hour-long seminar and meet with faculty and department chairs over lunch and dinner. We believe a relaxed environment with open dialogue is the best approach to know potential faculty members.
Our goal at the UCLA Samueli School is to enable as much positive change as possible via the impact engineers can have on society and the impact engineering can have on the individual. As part of our Engineer Change philosophy, we are focused on research that targets today’s greatest societal challenges, education that empowers students to become future change agents, access for the many to succeed in engineering careers, and entrepreneurship that helps bring great ideas to the market.
Candidates will be evaluated based on their research and teaching statements, and statement of contributions to diversity. UCLA Samueli will support travel and lodging expenses for all qualified candidates.
