Lecturer - Department of Astronomy - Division of Math and Physical Sciences - UC Berkeley



The Department of Astronomy at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach courses in Astronomy should an opening arise. Screening of applicants begins immediately and will continue as needed (including hiring for Summer Sessions). The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the department. Appointments are for one semester, and may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.

Due to Covid-19, courses taught during the spring semester will be taught remotely. During the summer and fall of 2021, courses may be taught remotely, in-person, or via a hybrid model, as required by county and state public health guidelines. Remote instruction may be synchronous, asynchronous, or a combination of both. Instructors must have internet access and be prepared to adjust pedagogical approaches with a remote setting and use new teaching tools.

Teaching responsibilities: We are seeking outstanding lecturers who can teach one or more courses in the undergraduate Astronomy/Astrophysics curriculum. A listing of current course descriptions is available at:

https://astro.berkeley.edu/courses-category/undergraduate

General duties: teaching responsibilities, holding office hours, developing syllabi, assignments, writing exams, supervising GSIs and maintaining course website. Other duties may be assigned by the Chair as necessary.

Basic qualifications: The minimum qualification required to be considered an applicant for the position is the completion of a Bachelor's (or equivalent international degree) at the time of application.

Preferred qualifications: A PhD (or equivalent international degree) in Astronomy, Physics, Astrophysics, or related fields, by the start of the date.

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience. Starting annual full- time salary is currently $56,381, prorated according to teaching workload (most lecturer positions are 33% time or lower, depending on duties). Some credit will be given to prior college-level teaching experience.

UC Lecturers are academic appointees in an organized bargaining unit and are exclusively represented by American Federation of Teachers - Unit 18.

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

UC Berkeley has an excellent benefits package as well as a number of policies and programs to support employees as they balance work and family.
