Lecturer Pool - Molecular Science and Software Engineering - College of Chemistry
Job posting number: #7063514
Posted: February 14, 2020
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The College of Chemistry at the University of California-Berkeley is generating an applicant pool of part‐time or full‐time qualified lecturers to teach graduate courses for the Master of Molecular Science and Software Engineering (MSSE) Program should an opening arise. MSSE is a unique program that provides critical thinkers with the practical skills needed to develop sophisticated computational models to solve large-scale challenges. Our degree provides the formal preparation in basic computational science practices, from algorithms to software to hardware that is usually missing from the undergraduate or graduate curriculum. Our program integrates numerical approaches to solving complex problems with software best practices to enable students to become effective scientific and engineering leaders. Our students graduate with the abilities to translate highly sophisticated theory, models, algorithms, and data analytics into software frameworks that others can use or build upon.
We are seeking dynamic lecturers with a commitment to graduate education in computational science, data science, and software engineering to lead multiple courses each year. The pool will remain in place for one year; those interested in remaining in the pool beyond that time must reapply. Screening of applicants begins immediately and will continue as needed; some appointments may begin in the fall 2020 semester. Positions range from 25% to 100%. The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the College and program. Positions typically start prior to the beginning of the semester, and appointments may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance.
Classroom teaching and preparation, managing and mentoring graders and/or graduate student instructors (teaching assistants), holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and using Cal’s electronic resources for course management.
Completion of all Ph.D., or equivalent international degree, requirements, or have degree candidate status at the time of application.
A Ph.D., or equivalent international degree, and authorization to work in the U.S. is required by the start date of the appointment.
Prior teaching experience in computational science, data science, and/or software engineering is preferred.
The College of Chemistry and the MSSE Program is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching.
Application materials should be submitted electronically through our web-based system at: https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/JPF02491.
We will only contact references for the finalists. 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 (apo.berkeley.edu/ucb-confidentiality-policy) prior to submitting their letters.
