Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Lecturer Pool in MSE


The Department of Materials Science and Engineering 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. 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.


The department offers BS, MS, MEng, and PhD degrees in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in the College of Engineering. The department educates students in the fundamental science and engineering principles relevant to materials, emphasizing the relationships between processing, nano/microstructure, characterization, properties, processing and design of advanced materials. The program trains students in the experimental and computational skills for a professional career, graduate study and advanced research in MSE. The duties will include (but are not limited to) teaching or co-teaching a course including: lecturing, holding office hours, grading and administering exams and coursework, managing and mentoring graders and/or graduate student instructors (teaching assistants), course preparation, holding discussion or lab sections and additional duties as needed.


Minimum Qualifications: Applicants must minimally have a Bachelor's or equivalent degree in area of expertise at time of application.


Additional qualifications: A PhD or equivalent in an engineering discipline (or related field) is required by the start of service.


Preferred Qualifications: Prior teaching experience is preferred.


Salary Range: $58,945 -$158,270. Starting salary will be commensurate with degrees currently held, past college-level teaching experience and equity within the department.


Positions are typically part-time. Instructors teaching a 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. Lecturers hired to teach during the Fall semester are employed from August through December. Lecturers hired to teach during the Spring semester are employed from January through May. This pool will remain open through January 31, 2018 to accommodate department needs. Appointments for fall semester are usually reviewed in April and May, and for spring semester in October and November.


Please submit your application materials electronically through the Berkeley’s Academic Personnel Recruiting website: https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF01170. Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and past teaching evaluations or other evidence of teaching experience.
