The Center for Teaching is Hiring Graduate Students for the 2020-2021 Academic Year
Each year the Center for Teaching (CFT) recruits a number of graduate students to support its work with graduate students as teaching assistants and future faculty members.
The CFT has several types of positions available for graduate students for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Graduate Teaching Fellows (GTFs) engage in a variety of activities focused on the development of graduate students as teachers, including facilitation of the CFT’s Certificate in College Teaching (CiCT) Program and graduate student consultations. This is a 12-month position carrying a $30,000 stipend and graduate health insurance. We expect to hire four GTFs next year.
Teaching Affiliates prepare and lead sessions at our annual Teaching Assistant Orientation (TAO) in August 2020, working about 70 hours total (mostly in August), and are paid $1,000 total stipend. We expect to hire 10 Teaching Affiliates next year. This is a useful option for graduate students who can’t commit to an entire year working at the CFT.
CiCT Facilitators will, alongside the GTFs, each lead a section of the CiCT program. Facilitators will read and prepare lesson plans, lead class sessions, and attend weekly meetings with the GTFs. When the CiCT program is in session (8 weeks per semester), the approximate workload will be between 5-10 hours/week. The CiCT Program Facilitator position carries a $3,000 total stipend, and we expect to hire two next year.
These positions can provide valuable professional development experience for graduate students interested in careers that involve teaching.
