The College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley is generating an applicant pool of qualified lecturers to teach graduate courses for the Master of Molecular Science and Software Engineering (MSSE) Program should an opening arise. 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. Disciplines where we are seeking instructors include:
- Computational Chemistry
- Computational Quantum Chemistry
- Scientific Computing
- Machine Learning/Deep Learning
- Complex mathematical modeling and simulations
- Leadership, management, and entrepreneurship
The MSSE Program is a unique program that is designed to formally train scientists, engineers, and computer scientists in computational and data science, and to provide them with the tools, software engineering practices, leadership, management, and entrepreneurial skills needed to create or lead science- or engineering-based enterprises. While the degree focuses on the molecular sciences, its content is suitable for any student pursuing software engineering or data science roles in other science-based industries, or in other areas that require advanced machine learning, complex mathematical modeling and simulations, or high-performance computing.
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.
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.
