Part time Lecturer position within the UC – many departments need additional teaching staff (note: this will require a temporary reduction in PD appointment).
Total appointment at UC cannot exceed 100%.
In most cases you can maintain postdoc benefits (PSBP) if you maintain at least 43.75% appointment as a postdoc, but verify this before finalizing your lecturer appointment.
Teaching positions outside the UC – many community colleges need lecturers also (though fewer for part time)
Teach part time for summer programs, at UC or otherwise (e.g., COSMOS, others?)
Depending on your visa type, special permission may be required to be paid for work not associated with your PD appointment
Make sure to determine the details of your visa status requirements when pursuing a formal teaching opportunity.
