Teaching opportunities

Teaching assistantships (TA-ships) are offered for graduate students to gain experience in teaching, and as a mechanism for financial support. A large number of TA-ships are available to qualified students for a variety of undergraduate courses. Immunology students usually TA in the life sciences. These positions are offered through individual departments rather than through the graduate group. Therefore, interested students need to contact these departments directly. Adequate command of the English language and a GPA of 3.0 are required for teaching assistantships. Information about availability and the department-specific application forms are best obtained directly from the individual department.

Below is a list of undergraduate classes through which immunology graduate students have received TA-ships in the past. A comprehensive description of these courses can be found online through the General Catalog. Not all courses listed offer 50% employment. Check the application. Most deadlines are two quarters before TA-ship is to be started.
