The Department of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley is recruiting a pool of qualified lecturers to teach core and upper-division undergraduate courses in Economics.
UC Berkeley plans for instruction to be given in person. However, UC Berkeley is prepared to implement hybrid and/or flexible modes of instruction in response to unforeseen circumstances (e.g., public emergencies). Remote instruction requires an online course to be designed from the outset for delivery via distance learning methods. Instructors must have internet access and be prepared to adjust pedagogical approaches with a remote setting and use new teaching tools. Department policy requires instructors to create and maintain a bcourses site.

In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include (but are not limited to) managing graders and/or graduate student instructors (teaching assistants), holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and maintaining a course website. Those teaching large courses are expected to work with, meet with, and mentor graduate student instructors.
Basic qualifications (required at time of application)
PhD (or equivalent international degree) or enrolled in a PhD (or equivalent international degree) program.
Additional qualifications (required at time of start)
Ph.D. (or equivalent international degree).
