LECTURER POOL - PHILOSOPHY - DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY (includes summer session)
The Department of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary instructors to serve as teachers or teaching assistants for lecture courses in philosophy should an opening arise. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed (including hiring for Summer Sessions). The number of positions varies from semester to semester and summer, depending upon the needs of the department. Positions may range from 27% to 55% time for one semester or one summer session. Positions typically start at the beginning of the semester (UC Berkeley's academic calendar can be viewed at http://registrar.berkeley.edu/calendar), and appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.
Basic qualifications: B.A. or equivalent degree in philosophy or related field with completion of all degree requirements by the time of application.
Preferred Qualifications: Previous experience teaching philosophy is desirable by start date.
General duties will include leading two or three weekly discussion sections per course, grading student assignments, providing individual student consultations, and attending all weekly course lectures.
Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience. Starting annual, full-time salary is $52,099 (27% of full-time salary for one semester is $7,033). Some credit will be given for prior college-level teaching experience (not including graduate student or summer session teaching).
Contact information for three professional/academic references (required)
Student Course Evaluations - no more than 3 courses (optional)
While only contact information for references is required at the time of application, the Department may later request letters from finalists' references. If requested, all letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.
Appointments for fall semester are usually reviewed in April and May, and in October and November for spring course needs, summer course needs in January and February, and on an as-needed basis. The pool will close on October 24, 2017; if you would like remain in the pool after that time you will need to submit a new application.

See the review date specified in APRecruit to learn whether the department is currently reviewing applications for a specific position. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time.
