The Department of Psychology will appoint a number of Teaching Assistants to support our undergraduate courses during the Winter 2019 academic session. Applicants must be UBC students enrolled in a degree program during the 2019/20 academic year. Ideally, applicants will have a BA or BSc degree or its equivalent, and academic or professional experience in an area appropriate to the course topic. Typical duties include: assisting in the preparation, teaching and marking of course assignments and exams; helping to set up instructional equipment; attending class sessions, leading seminars or discussion groups; advising students individually or in groups through regular office hours or by appointment; invigilating tests and exams, may include deferred exams.
Hour of work vary by course, with a maximum assignment of 12 hours per week (384 hours, from Sept 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020). Salary and applicant selection is based on the process outlined in the CUPE 2278 Collective Agreement.
Applicants not in the UBC Psychology Graduate Program must also submit a copy of their curriculum vitae and a list of courses completed in Psychology directly to Tara Martin, the department administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
