Description

The College of Environmental Design (CED) at UC Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary, part-time instructors to teach studio and non-studio courses for the Master of Real Estate Development + Design program (MRED+D) in the following areas: real estate finance, development, law, and professional practice, architecture, city planning, urban design, and landscape architecture should an opening arise.

Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from semester to semester (fall, spring and summer), depending upon the needs of MRED+D program leadership. Lecturers are appointed at 33% time when teaching one course per semester, and at reduced percentage when co-teaching. The department rarely appoints lecturers to teach two or more courses per semester. Salary is commensurate with experience. This pool will remain open until September 30, 2020 to accommodate upcoming program needs. Those interested in remaining in the pool beyond that date will need to reapply.

General Duties: In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and using Cal’s electronic resources for course management.
