Position description

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley is generating a new applicant pool of qualified temporary instructors and invites applications for a lecturer position to teach courses in our department in the areas of Energy, Civil Infrastructure and Climate; Engineering and Project Management; Environmental Engineering; GeoSystems Engineering; Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials; Systems (Civil Systems); and Transportation Engineering.

This pool is being generated in case of need to accommodate upcoming course needs and new applicants and will remain open through September 30, 2021. We plan to hire for the Spring 2021 semester, Summer Sessions 2021, and the Fall 2021 semester, if the need arises. It is likely that instruction will occur remotely for the Spring 2021 semester, and perhaps Summer Sessions 2021. The review of applications for spring semester appointments will be in October, for summer sessions in April, and for fall semester appointments in May. Candidates under consideration will be contacted by our department. Selected candidates will hold the title of Lecturer. To learn more about our department please visit http://www.ce.berkeley.edu/.

Preferred qualifications: Ph.D. or equivalent international degree in an engineering discipline (or related field), experience in the field of Civil and Environmental Engineering and prior teaching experience is preferred. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S.A.

Starting salary will be commensurate with highest degree, past college-level teaching experience, relevant industry experience and equity within the department. The minimum annual full-time rate is currently $63,788.
