Apply to be an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant

The Biology Program has approximately 10 open positions of Undergraduate Teaching Assistants for Biology 1001, 1003 and 1009 for the Spring 2014 semester.  The essential qualifications for these positions are advanced undergraduate standing (junior or senior carrying at least six credits) and completion of at least Biology 2002 (or equivalent).  Successful candidates typically have more experience in biology through additional coursework, jobs or research.

Depending on scheduling, you will be leading two laboratory sections for Biol 1001, 1003 or 1009.  The sections are each two hours long.

The pay is $10.84 per hour with the expectation that you would be working 8 - 12 hours per week, on average, with some weeks being slightly heavier and some slightly lighter loads.  TA training occurs the week before the semester begins on Thursday, January 16, 2014. You must be back on campus in time to attend this training. There are also weekly meetings for the courses on Monday or Friday afternoons (depending on the course that you are selected to teach) that you would be required to attend.  There will be some flexibility in the scheduling of these weekly meetings, and we will work with TA schedules to best accommodate everyone.

If you are interested, please send your resume and transcript to Dr. Cheryl Scott, scot0136@umn.edu, by Friday November 1, 2013.  Any questions should be directed to Dr. Scott.
