Position description

The College of Environmental Design (CED) at UC Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified instructors to teach studio and non-studio undergraduate and/or graduate courses, including for the Sustainable Environmental Design (SED) major and the Master of Urban Design (MUD) program.

The Sustainable Environmental Design major recognizes that the emergent, multidisciplinary field of sustainability science is growing rapidly. As the world population urbanizes, the planning and design of resilient, resource-efficient, healthy and socially just cities and metropolitan regions is profoundly important. The major offers students a critical understanding of the sustainability challenges facing urban regions in California and around the globe, and equips them with the technical, analytic and design tools key to devising creative solutions.

The Master of Urban Design degree program is a one-year, advanced, interdisciplinary program of study for students with a prior professional degree in architecture, landscape architecture, or city and regional planning. The program's goals are to further train designers who are able to work effectively in teams across a large range of scales and who have a well-developed understanding of urban places and the interdependencies of the fabric of buildings, landscapes, public ways, and the social interactions that shape them.

Lecturers will supervise student design projects, give lectures, prepare assignments and project topics & deliverables, hold regular office hours, prepare exams or hold reviews, give design advice, and submit final grades.

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 the College. Your application is only complete and available for review when you receive an auto-generated confirmation from the recruitment system.
