Faculty Fellows Program 2023-24 AY: Spanish &Portuguese

University of California Los Angeles

Requisition Number: JPF08766

Faculty Fellows must be recent PhDs who demonstrate promise of excellence in both research and teaching. Faculty Fellows (official payroll title: Assistant Adjunct Professor) must be recent PhDs who demonstrate promise of excellence in both research and teaching, as well as a commitment to fostering diversity.

Successful candidates must have satisfied one of the two options below:

a) Received their PhD between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 (the last day before the beginning date of the appointment)


b) Advanced to candidacy, be in the final stages of writing their dissertations, and have plans to complete all requirements for the degree by the appointment date of July 1, 2023.

Fellows cannot be appointed and placed on payroll until the dissertation is filed. A copy of the “Certificate of Completion” will be required before the appointment date of July 1, 2023.

The number of Assistant Adjunct Professors to be awarded each year in the Faculty Fellows Program will depend on available funding

Candidates will primarily be selected for their promise as excellent teachers and scholars, and their commitment to fostering diversity. Selection will also be based on the candidates’ ability to help meet critical departmental needs in undergraduate teaching and their proposal for an undergraduate course that is broadly conceived and calibrated for its intended audience.

Finally, selection will be based on the plan for mentoring the nominee. Faculty Fellows must have a faculty mentor for teaching activities and one for research activities; in some cases, the same faculty person might fill both mentoring functions. Candidates and their mentors should outline clear goals to be achieved during the year of the program. Examples include expanding the dissertation into a book; publishing portions of the dissertation, or other research materials, in refereed journals; creating a professional portfolio; and so forth. Individuals and mentors are also encouraged to explore innovative teaching assignments to enrich undergraduate education. Mentors should plan to work closely with the Faculty Fellow on developing appropriate course syllabi for undergraduate courses and with issues which may arise related to teaching.

Appointments are effective for the academic year from July 1 to June 30. The service period for the
appointment is the beginning of the Fall Quarter to the end of the Spring Quarter. Initial appointment as a Faculty Fellow is for one year. Fellows may apply for one additional year, based on department needs, but preference will be given to students newly coming into the program. Consistent with other non-Senate appointments, appointments will be made on a year-to-year basis, subject to renewal within the established limitations of the program.

Most appointments will involve teaching 3-5 undergraduate courses. Both the percent time of appointment and the actual courses assigned will vary according to the needs of the department and available funding

The appointment will have the official title of Assistant Adjunct Professor (Title Code 3278). See https://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/_files/2022-23/oct-2022-salary-scales/t1.pdf for the salary range for this position. A reasonable estimate for this
position is $70,900-$79,400. The salary is subject to range adjustments (when applicable), but appointees are not eligible for merit increases due to the length of the fellowship.

The dissertation must be filed by June 16, 2023 and a copy of the “Certificate of Completion” must be submitted prior to the start of the appointment for the candidate to be hired officially.

Faculty Fellows will have access to research and/or teaching supplies up to $500 per year. Such funding cannot be used for equipment such as laptops, iPads, cameras, external drives, printers, etc. In addition, Faculty Fellows will receive support for airfare and lodging at the MLA Conference or another conference of their choice in a relevant field for up to $1,000. The serious pursuit of permanent employment should be considered one of the primary goals of the Faculty Fellows.

Appointees at 100% will be provided Health and Welfare benefits. This includes full medical insurance (dental and vision), basic life insurance, employer paid disability, and other benefits.

These titles do not accrue vacation or sick leave. Please refer to the Academic Personnel Manual for further information. The University provides administrative holidays as set forth annually in the University calendar. Appointees are also eligible for all University privileges, such as library access, parking permits, access to recreational sports facilities, and so forth.


Applications will only be accepted through the job posting on UCLA Academic Recruit (Job JPF08081) . You will need to create an applicant profile and submit the following information in the areas provided in the system.

Materials to be submitted include:

Cover letter from the candidate that provides:

• A summary assessment of their qualifications and promise for excellence in research, teaching, and commitment to fostering diversity; proposed teaching and research; and mentoring plan;

• A statement of expected completion date of the PhD and total time since advancement to candidacy.
