Description
The Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science in the College of Letters and Science at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary lecturers to teach courses as needed in the areas of American Politics, California Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Methodology & Formal Theory, Political Theory & Philosophy, Models & Politics, Political Behavior, Public Law & Jurisprudence, and Public Policy & Organization.

The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the department. Positions may range from 33% to 100%, depending on the number of classes being taught.

Appointments typically start at the beginning of the semester and may be renewed based on need, funding, and performance.

General Duties: In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g. syllabus), and maintaining a course website.

Basic Qualifications: Bachelor's degree (or equivalent international degree) is required at the time of application.

Preferred Qualifications: Completion of all Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree requirements except dissertation at the time of application or, full-time paid political experience of at least 4 years within the last 10 years.

Salary: Initial salary will be based on applicant's teaching experience. The current minimum salary for an academic-year full-time annual salary is $56,381. Lecturers teaching one course in a single semester are typically appointed at a 17% annual rate.

The department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching. UC Berkeley has a number of policies and programs in place to support employees as they balance work and family.

To apply, please go to the following link: https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/JPF02254. Letters of reference may be solicited for finalists.

When and if the department contacts references, all letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.

The department typically reviews applications for fall course needs in April/May, for spring course needs in October/November, and for summer course needs in February/March. Summer session classes are held during the months of May-August.
