Position description

The Department of Music at the University of California, Berkeley, is generating an applicant pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach a range of performance courses in the Music Department.

These courses include, but not limited to the following:

Music 141 “University Orchestra”
Music 143 “Gospel Chorus”
Music 144 “University Chorus”
Music 145 “University Chamber Chorus”
Music 149 “University Baroque Ensemble”
Music 141 University Symphony Orchestra

Music 143 focuses on the performance of choral music of the African American gospel music tradition with a particular emphasis on contemporary performance techniques. The Gospel Chorus, as is the case with other formal University music performance ensembles, will prepare music to be presented to the public in at least two concerts each semester. Students will be selected for the chorus on the basis of individual auditions.

Music 144 performs music primarily from the 17th to the 20th centuries including works for chorus and orchestra.

Music 145 is a smaller mixed chorus that aims at a professional standard of ensemble singing and explores the lesser-known choral repertory.

Music 149 is the performance of Renaissance and Baroque music for voices and instruments.

In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and interacting with students outside of class time via email and/or bCourses. Some courses may require supervision of discussion sections taught by graduate students.
Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists.
