Working for CWP

Please read all information about hiring carefully. In order to maintain fairness for all applicants, we follow hiring guidelines very strictly. 

Applications are taken through our annual lecturer pool. You can read more about qualifications and apply at the Academic Personnel Recruitment site. We cannot accept applications via email or postal mail. Please do not send your CV or a letter of application to any individuals in the department.

UC Berkeley GSIs: You may apply for summer positions only. As we are a program rather than a department, we cannot hire GSIs during the academic year, as we are unable to provide fee remissions.

If you have already applied for a position, you will be contacted if we want to follow up with an interview. Please do not check on the status of your application by email or phone. Because of University fairness rules, we cannot meet with any applicant who has not already been selected for an interview.
