Position description

The Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation at the University of California, Berkeley is generating an applicant pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach fall and spring semester courses, as well as summer courses, should an opening arise.

Made possible by a $20-million commitment from the Paul and Stacy Jacobs Foundation, Berkeley Engineering launched the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation at the Clinton Global Initiative in June 2013. As the Institute works to further its mission of educating leading innovators at the intersection of human-centered design and emerging technologies, it provides students with hands-on experiences and opportunities to work in interdisciplinary teams to address real societal issues. Students are challenged to approach the entire cycle of design, from identifying user needs to rapid prototyping to commercialization and manufacturing, from an integrated vantage point.

Lecturers will supervise student design projects, give lectures, prepare assignments and project topics & deliverables, hold regular office hours, prepare exams or hold reviews, give design advice, and submit final grades. Salary is commensurate with the highest degree, teaching experience, and equity within the Department.

We are also seeking Teacher Special Programs (TSP) instructors, should an opening arise. The TSP's principal responsibilities can range from teaching a short course, providing a lecturer with industry expertise, participating in design critiques during a course, teaching at institute bootcamps, or contributing to major curriculum development.

The department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching.
