From time to time, the department hires undergraduate teaching assistants if we do not have sufficient graduate-student TAs to meet our requirements. Preference is given to Physics students who have completed 2nd year, but others may apply. At present (Summer 2022), we need to hire several TAs for each of the fall and winter terms, and are seeking applications from qualified people. We will keep your application on file for the school year, but it may be useful to re-apply in March for the summer terms. Hiring decisions are mostly made just before the start of each term (end of August, beginning of January, and in April for the summer terms), although sometimes we need to hire in the middle of a term.
If you have any questions, you can contact Aileen Pineda at email@example.com.
Applications are now open for the Summer 2022 NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs).

As part of the Department’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusive excellence, we have established the Physics and Astronomy Research Experience Award for undergraduate Faculty of Science students who identify as racialized, Black, and/or Indigenous and have an interest in research. More information including the list of available projects and how to apply can be found in the link above.
The McMaster Work Program (McWork Program) gives opportunities to students who demonstrate financial need to work on campus part-time (max 10 hours/week) during the fall/winter terms and full-time (max 35 hours/week) over the summer. Please refer to the McWork Program website for more information.
The Student Partners Program (SPP) provides undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to participate as partners with faculty, instructors and staff on projects that contribute to the enhancement of teaching and learning at McMaster.
