Position description

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach Electrical Engineering or Computer Science courses should an opening arise. These are not tenure‐track positions – selected candidates will hold the title of Lecturer. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the department. Due to budget restrictions, no funding is available for visa or relocation expenses.

In addition to lecturing responsibilities, general duties for these positions include holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g. syllabus), and maintaining a course website.

The Department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching. UC Berkeley has an excellent benefits package as well as a number of policies and programs to support employees as they balance work and family, if applicable.

Appointments for summer sessions are usually reviewed in February. Appointments for the fall and spring semesters are usually reviewed in March. Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists. See the review date specified in AP Recruit to learn whether the Department is currently reviewing applications for a specific position. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time.
