Distinguished Professor Hiring Program
(Suspended Indefinitely)
The Distinguished Professor Hiring Program is suspended indefinitely. We are exploring other possibilities for hiring senior faculty in strategic areas.
Distinguished Visiting Professor Initiative
New nominations suspended for 2021-2022. Multiyear commitments to current faculty in the distinguished visiting professor program will continue, contingent on positive review of annual renewal application.

The purpose of this program is to attract a variety of highly successful and inspirational scholars to the UCI campus. Ideal candidates should contain a skill set that will contribute to UCI's visibility and research impact, as well as, inspire and mentor students by teaching courses and/or mentoring.

  • The Program will provide a replacement salary equivalent to the home institution up to a maximum of 80K.
  • Length of stay is up to one quarter/year for 3-5 years (cannot exceed 5 year limit ).
Inclusive Excellence SupplementDeans can apply for an “inclusive excellence supplement” to help recruit faculty, identified through a standard department-based search, who contribute significantly to the goal of inclusive excellence. This does not apply to individuals hired in the High Impact Hiring Program (HIHP) or the Midcareer Professor Hiring Initiative.
President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship ProgramThe University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships, professional development and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity at UC.
