The University of California Riverside is embarking on a major new hiring initiative that will add 300
tenure-track positions in 33 cross-disciplinary areas selected through a peer-reviewed competition.
Over the next three years, we will hire multiple faculty members in each area and invest in research
infrastructure to support their work. This initiative will build 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 We encourage applications from scholars committed to excellence and

This announcement aims to fill up to three positions in the area of multiphase atmospheric chemical
transformations at both the junior and senior levels. Research areas of interest include, but are not
limited to, atmospheric chemistry mechanisms, ambient and laboratory measurements, atmospheric
transport and meteorology, and numerical modeling. The placement of each successful candidate may
be in the departments of Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Earth Sciences, Chemical and
Environmental Engineering, or another relevant department, depending on the preferences of the
candidate and the host departments. Junior candidates are expected to develop an internationally
recognized and externally funded research program in one or more areas related to atmospheric
chemistry and atmospheric transformations. Senior candidates must have a demonstrated record of
success in these areas. All candidates must have a doctorate in a relevant field (such as Chemistry,
Environmental Sciences, Earth Sciences, or Environmental Engineering) and be strongly committed to
both undergraduate and graduate teaching. Preference will be given to applicants whose research
interests complement those of existing faculty affiliated with the Chemistry, Environmental Sciences,
Earth Sciences, or Chemical and Environmental Engineering Graduate Programs and strengthen our
future research initiatives in environmental sciences. Preference also will be given to applicants who
have the potential or demonstrated ability to successfully work with and benefit a diverse student body.
