About the University of California Los Angeles

The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) is a public land-grant research university in Los Angeles, California. It became the Southern Branch of the University of California in 1919, making it the second-oldest (after UC Berkeley) of the 10-campus University of California system. UCLA offers 337 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a wide range of disciplines, enrolling about 31,500 undergraduate and 12,800 graduate students.

Position Description

This opening is for a tenure-track Assistant Professor whose scholarly focus encompasses Black health inequities and “Big Data” methodology. Stark discrepancies associated with the COVID-19 pandemic have elevated public consciousness of broader social inequities and recognition of racial justice as a crucial priority. Further, methodological expertise is essential to translating data into policy-relevant initiatives. This search is a partnership between the Department of Community Health Sciences, the Department of Biostatistics, and the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies as part of the campus-wide effort to rise to the challenge of racial and social justice at UCLA. The applicant would have academic appointments in both departments and would be expected to have a formal affiliation with the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA.


Responsibilities include conducting research; teaching; advising students; involvement in the School, Department, University, and the applicant’s professional field; and building a record of extramural research funding.
