Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The STARS program in the College of Engineering has two outstanding teaching assistant/associate opportunities for the 2018-2019 academic year. The program is seeking two TAs who will support STARS students in physics problem solving courses and supplemental workshops. While the principal focus will be on physics, qualified candidates will demonstrate competency in mathematics and be willing to provide support for problem solving courses and supplemental workshops for mathematics courses. Preference will be given to students in the post-qualifying exam phase in their program and/or who can also teach chemistry.
To be considered for these TA positions, candidates must be willing and able to attend approximately 8 to 10 hours of training during May 2018 (specific times and dates TBD). Hours spent in training will result in a commensurate reduction in the total number of service hours required in one or more quarters during the 2018-19 academic year.
- Serve as the lead teaching assistant for STARS physics problem solving courses and supplemental workshops for PHYS 121 and 122.
- Serve as the lead teaching assistant for math (and/or chemistry) problem solving courses and/or supplemental workshops as needed.
- Perform administrative functions such as course planning and grading in addition to teaching and tutoring.
- Work with students individually or in small groups in the Engineering Academic Center to provide academic and study skills support.
- Attend scheduled meetings and training or planning sessions required by the STARS program and/or the Engineering Academic Center.
- Undergraduate degree in engineering, physics, mathematics, chemistry, or related discipline.
- Strong commitment to teaching required. Teaching or tutoring experience strongly desired.
- Strong commitment to working with first-generation and underrepresented students and students from low-income backgrounds.
These are 50% FTE academic student employee appointments and include the standard tuition waiver and health benefits. Salary is commensurate with each appointee’s academic standing.
The positions are open until filled. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and interviews will be scheduled as soon as possible. To apply, send a CV, a cover letter, and an unofficial copy of all graduate and undergraduate transcripts to Christopher Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
