The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) at the University of California, Berkeley is generating an applicant pool of temporary part‐time or full‐time qualified lecturers to teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in the department should an opening arise. The vibrant community of CBE is home to leading programs including an undergraduate program ranked #2 in the nation, US News and World Report; a graduate Ph.D program ranked #2 in the nation, US News and World Report 2018; and a graduate MS program specializing in product development. Our department is situated within the College of Chemistry, a small college within a large campus, with a connected and collegial feel. The College provides comprehensive student support services including peer tutoring, professional advising, career placement, and drop‐in counseling. Award‐winning student groups including chapters of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), American Cancer Society (ACS) and Chemical Engineering Car (Chem‐E‐Car) enhance the student experience, and faculty members mentor students in clubs and teams in biofuels technology, cosmetics formulation, phytoremediation, and research projects.


We are seeking a dynamic lecturer with a commitment to undergraduate and graduate education in chemical engineering and to lead multiple courses each year. The pool will remain in place for one calendar year; those interested in remaining in the pool beyond that time must reapply. Screening of applicants begins immediately and will continue as needed; some appointments may begin in the 2018 fall semester. Positions range from 33% to 100%. The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the department. Positions typically start at the beginning of the semester, and appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.


General Duties:
In addition to classroom/laboratory teaching and preparation, general duties may include (but are not limited to) managing and mentoring graders and/or graduate student instructors (teaching assistants), holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and using Cal's electronic resources for course management.


Basic qualifications:
Advanced degree or enrolled in advanced degree program at the time of application.


Additional qualifications:
A Ph.D. or equivalent international degree.


Preferred qualifications:
Prior teaching experience is preferred.
