Description

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. Appointments for Fall and Spring semester are usually reviewed in April/May and Summer appointments are reviewed in October. Positions may range from 33% to 67% time, respectively equivalent to one or two courses per semester.

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.

Due to COVID 19 UC Berkeley will begin the fall semester with fully remote instruction. UC Berkeley is prepared to implement hybrid and/or flexible modes of instruction as soon as public health conditions allow. 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.

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.

Minimum Basic Qualifications Required (at the time of application):

Minimum qualification required to be considered an applicant for the position is completion of all PhD (or international equivalent degree) requirements except dissertation.

Additional Qualifications (by start date):

A PhD (or international equivalent degree) is required by the start date.

Preferred Qualifications:

Prior teaching experience preferred.

A PhD (or international equivalent degree) in Anthropology or Folklore

Salary commensurate with education and teaching experience. Starting minimum full-time equivalent annual academic salary is $56,381.00.

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.

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.
