Position description


The Division of Arts and Humanities at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applications for a pool of outstanding lecturers to teach Humanities (HUM) courses should an opening arise. HUM courses are offered centrally through the Arts & Humanities Dean's Office. They are open to students in any major and seek to introduce students to the various disciplines in the division.

In addition to instruction, general duties include holding office hours, developing syllabi and assignments, writing and grading exams, and grading and commenting on papers. Other duties may be assigned by the Chair as necessary.

For those who are not US citizens or permanent residents, a legal permit that allows work in the United States (such as a US visa that allows employment) is required by start date of the position. The Division is unable to provide a visa/work permit.

The number of positions varies from semester to semester, and appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.

Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists. See the review dates specified in AP Recruit to learn whether the department is currently reviewing applications for a specific position. If there are no future review dates specified, your application may not be considered at this time.
