Cluster Hiring


The University of California at Riverside is embarking on a major new hiring initiative that will add 300 tenure-track positions over the next three years. This significant expansion of our faculty, along with strategic investments in research infrastructure, will focus on 33 interdisciplinary areas that were selected through a peer-reviewed competition. This initiative will achieve critical mass in vital and emerging fields of scholarship, foster truly cross-disciplinary work, and further diversify the faculty at one of America’s most diverse research universities.

UCR is home to some of the most productive faculty in the world. They are at the core of a campus community that achieves success through access rather than exclusion. Student surveys consistently show that UCR is a national leader in creating a campus climate where underrepresented minority students and lower-income students feel respected and welcomed. This inclusive environment has led to some of the lowest racial and socioeconomic graduation rate gaps in the country.

Why Ucr? Diversity, Excellence, Community

UCR embodies how diversity can foster truly innovative research, creative curricula, and a healthy, engaging, and vibrant campus climate. We encourage applications from scholars committed to this mission. Join us in defining the new American research university.
