General Duties: Teaching or co-teaching a CalTeach course includes holding office hours, assigning grades, advising students, and preparing course materials. Responsibilities may also include assisting with student field placements in local schools, providing supervision and support to student and intern teachers in their classrooms, and supporting CalTeach students through the credentialing process. Successful temporary lecturers will teach or co- teach one or more CalTeach course. For descriptions of these courses see http:/calteach.berkeley.edu

Basic Qualifications: Masters degree or equivalent international degree is required at time of application.

Preferred Qualifications: A doctorate or equivalent degree. At least 3 years of secondary math and/or science teaching experience is preferred, particularly within the Bay Area. Undergraduate teaching experience, excellent oral and written communication skills, good interpersonal skills, and the ability to multi-task and balance competing priorities are also desirable. The ideal candidate will also have practical experience with scientific laboratory or field research, or science or mathematics education research and program evaluation.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with experience and is based on the Non-Senate Faculty Scale established by the University of California. The current scale, for academic year 2019/2020 is $56,381 to $159,045 for a full-time academic year salary.
