Undergraduate Teaching Assistantship Application

 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 2021), 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 Tina Stewart at
