The UC Davis School of Education invites applications for a pool of part-time lecturers, should an opening arise, across several programs: Undergraduate, Teacher Credential, and Doctorates in Education (PhD) and Educational Leadership (EdD). Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies each year. These are quarterly positions and are for the quarter of appointment only in most cases (exceptions being for two- or three-quarter sequences). Reappointment, if any, is based solely on instructional need. Each Lecturer must undergo an annual review, the outcome of which must be positive before a Lecturer can be considered for reappointment. Candidates should be competent to conduct instruction independently and without supervision, as well as to supervise and work collaboratively with Teaching Assistants assigned to their courses (if any).
