We employ graduate students as either Graduate Teaching Associates (GTAs), Graduate Assistants (GAs), or Instructional Support Assistants (ISAs).
GTAs are employed as instructors of undergraduate lab classes.
Assignments for the GA positions include laboratory preparation and research assistance. Assignments for the ISA positions include running scantrons, grading, graduate and undergraduate advising assistance, tutoring, and facilitating large classes.
To be eligible for a GTA/GA/ISA position, a student must be actively pursuing a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology, Nutritional Sciences, or Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Sciences. Students with classified standing (versus conditional) have higher priority in the award of a GTA/GA/ISA position. A conditionally classified student can hold a position for only one semester.
GTA/GA/ISA positions are one-semester appointments and are renewable for a maximum of four semesters (six semesters for the Concurrent MS Degree in Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Sciences). The stipend or hourly wage depends on assignment and experience. There is no tuition waiver with the appointment.
You may apply for more than one type of position. Please note in your cover letter. To be considered for a position, prospective students must include the following with their graduate program application:
- A personal cover letter describing relevant experiences and certifications
- Application form (docx, updated 10/03/2022)
- Resume or CV
Current students may email the application materials to the School of ENS Graduate Advising Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
