The College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary instructors to teach courses in a wide variety of disciplines. At CNR, we study natural and human systems from biological, ecological, economic, and social science perspectives. With more than 120 faculty and approximately 1,800 undergraduate and 300 graduate students, we engage the issues that shape the complex, interconnected world of the 21st century, from sustainable food systems to obesity, from water policy to energy policy, and from the far- reaching impacts of climate change to the linkages between the human genome, diet, and disease. Further information about CNR can be found at http://cnr.berkeley.edu

The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending upon the needs of the college. Appointments are part-time and may be renewable based on need, funding, and performance. Applications will be accepted and reviewed for department needs,
