Lecturer Pool - Folklore and Socio-Cultural Anthropology - Department of Anthropology
The Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley is generating an applicant pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach courses in Folklore and Socio-Cultural Anthropology, should an opening arise. Applications will be accepted and reviewed according to department needs.
We are especially interested in Anthropologists and Folklorists who can teach one or two undergraduate courses in a topical field of their expertise, or which satisfy our upper division major requirements and electives in Socio-Cultural Anthropology (e.g., geographic area or methods courses). We are particularly interested in applicants who can teach courses in the following fields: Post-communist transformations in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe; language, culture and society; and medical anthropology. We also welcome applicants with innovative approaches to any other field within Folklore and Socio-Cultural anthropology, and whose teaching might supplement current curriculum gaps in the department.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties may include holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g. syllabus), writing exams, and managing GSIs.
UC Lecturers are academic appointees in an organized bargaining unit and are exclusively represented by American Federation of Teachers - Unit 18.
UC Berkeley has a number of policies and programs to support employees as they balance work and family, if applicable.
