The Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Program (ISSP) at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applications for a temporary lecturer to teach interdisciplinary core courses serving the Global Poverty and Practice Minor.
ISSP offers two innovative and interdisciplinary undergraduate majors: Political Economy and Global Studies. The department also serves as the academic home of a unique interdisciplinary undergraduate minor, Global Poverty & Practice, in collaboration with the Blum Center for Developing Economies. One of the largest minors on campus, GPP's rationale is that any major on campus is enriched with attention to poverty and inequality.

- Global Poverty: Challenges and Hopes

Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the department. Appointments for Fall semester are usually reviewed in April, Spring semester in October or November, and Summer Session appointments in March.
Please note that for those who are not US citizens or permanent residents, a legal permit that allows work in the United States (such as a US visa that allows employment) is required by the start date of the position. The department is unable to provide a visa/work permit.
Due to Covid-19, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 courses may be taught remotely, in-person, or via a hybrid model, as required by county and state public health guidelines.
