Undergraduate TA positions in Biology Teaching and Learning

The Department of Biology Teaching and Learning has several open Undergraduate Teaching Assistant positions for Biology 1001,1003 or 1009 in the Spring 2020 semester.  The essential qualifications for these positions are advanced undergraduate standing (junior or senior carrying at least six credits) and completion of at least Biol 1951/1961 (or equivalent).  Successful candidates typically have more experience in biology through additional coursework, jobs, or research. 

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

The pay is $11.03 per hour with the expectation that you would be working 10 - 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: The week of January 13, 2020. You must be back on campus in time to attend this training. There are also weekly meetings for the courses on Monday or Friday afternoon (depending on the course that you are selected to teach), which 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 all.  

If you are interested, please send your resume and transcript to Dr. Cheryl Scott, scot0136@umn.edu by 4:00pm, Friday November 8, 2019. Please direct any questions to Dr. Scott.
