Description

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach courses in our department 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. Instructors teaching one course with three hours of lecture per week will normally be appointed at 33% time during the semester; exact percentages depend on contact hours and other assigned duties. Due to budget restrictions, no funding is available for visa or relocation expenses.

In addition to lecturing responsibilities, general duties for these positions typically include managing and supporting Graduate Student Instructors, holding office hours, running laboratories and demonstrations, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g. syllabus) and maintaining a course website.

Basic qualifications: Applicants must hold a B.S. degree or equivalent international degree at the time of application.

Additional qualifications: The following additional qualifications are required by the start date of the job. An M.S. or Ph.D. or equivalent international degree or comparable experience (e.g. at least five years teaching and/or industry leadership experience) is required by the start of service. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S.A.

Preferred qualifications: Advanced degree in bioengineering, biomedical engineering or related field. Also preferred: teaching experience, particularly as an instructor of record for a course or courses in bioengineering or related field; experience managing and training Graduate Student Instructors/Teaching Assistants; and mentorship experience.

Salary Range: $61,930 -$162,227. Starting salary will be commensurate with degrees currently held, past college-level teaching experience and equity within the department.

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.

Applicants should submit their most recently updated curriculum vitae, a teaching statement, and contact details of 2-4 references. The teaching statement should include teaching experience (classroom size, format, challenges, and diversity). Include evaluations if available, and a list of courses you are qualified to teach (http://guide.berkeley.edu/courses/bio_eng/). If you wish to, you may also submit a cover letter or statement of contributions to diversity, but are not required to do so.

The posting will remain open until June 28, 2019 to accommodate upcoming Department course needs. Appointments for the fall semester are usually reviewed in February, and for the spring semester in August. Candidates under consideration will be contacted by our department. The pool will close on June 28, 2019; if you would like to continue to be considered after that time you will need to submit a new application. Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists.
