Position description


The Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS) at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary lecturers to teach CDSS courses should an opening arise. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from semester to semester (fall, spring and summer sessions), depending on the needs of the unit.

About CDSS
The Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS) is a dynamic, innovative new structure at UC Berkeley that represents a once-in-a-generation transformation. The Division brings together faculty, researchers, and students from computing, statistics, the humanities, and social and natural sciences, mirroring the cross-cutting nature of data science and redefining the research university for the digital age. Core to the Division is a commitment to examining how the digital revolution affects equity and opportunity-and building the capacity to respond to these challenges. CDSS connects the Data Science Education Program, School of Information, Departments of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences and Statistics, the Berkeley Institute for Data Science, and the Data Science Commons. The Division is responsible for growing Berkeley's broad-based data science education program, including classes and programs serving thousands of undergraduate students a year.

CDSS is committed to hiring and developing staff who want to work in a high performing culture that reflects the outstanding work of our faculty and students. CDSS is interested in candidates whose previous experience has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Responsibilities
CDSS is seeking outstanding instructors to be appointed in the non-Senate Lecturer title series who can teach small and large courses in several areas. We are particularly interested in instructors who can combine computational and inferential thinking in a way that reflects the new field of Data Science Education.

Core courses include:
Fundamentals of Data Science
Principle and Techniques of Data Science
Human Contexts and Ethics of Data
Data and Justice
Data, Inference, and Decisions
Honors Thesis Seminar

Connector Courses: Instructors may be hired to teach Connector Courses that connect Foundations of Data Science with other disciplines, such as neuroscience, legal studies, public health, demography, English or others. Connector courses allow students to apply theoretical concepts from data science to a particular area of interest. Course design and syllabus will leverage the sequence of computational and statistical techniques that students learn in the Foundations course.

Teaching a Data Science course may include holding office hours, assign grades, advise students, prepare course materials (e.g., syllabus), provide clear and prompt feedback on student work, and maintain the course website.

CDSS is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching.

Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists.
