Teaching Assistant Positions

The Physics Department believes that teaching is an important part of a graduate level education in Physics. Consequently, three quarters of teaching are a requirement for the Ph.D. in physics. Teaching duties vary from course to course but can include leading discussion sections, laboratory sections, meeting with students informally through office hours, and grading homework and exams. A TA application form must be completed before any quarter in which a student wishes to teach.

TA applications for 2017/18 will be accepted through the application site during the following Two-week periods.
