We normally employ about 10-15 graduate students as either Teaching Associates (TAs) or Graduate Assistants/Instructional Support Assistants (GAs or Instructional Support Assistant).
TA assignments are in the teaching of undergraduate lab classes.
Assignment for the GA/ISA might include laboratory prep, graduate and undergraduate advisors or assistance running scantrons, grading, tutoring, or facilitating large classes.
To be eligible for a graduate/ Instructional Support assistantship or teaching associateship, a student must have classified graduate standing (or be close to it) and be actively pursuing the Master’s degree in Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, Nutritional Sciences, or Exercise Physiology & Nutrition. Student with “classified standing” have very high priority in the award of assistantships/associateships, so you should be taking the necessary steps to getting it. A conditionally classified student can hold a GTA or GA/ISA for only one semester.
These are one-semester appointments and are renewable to maximum of four semesters. The stipend depends on assignment and experience.
For consideration, a student must file:
- A personal cover letter describing relevant experiences and certifications
- The application for Teaching or Graduate Assistantship (pdf, updated 11/7/2017)
