Next posting August 2014.
In accordance with the TRAC Collective Agreement, the CMLL department posts the upcoming Teaching Assistantship positions on this website. Please check this page regularly, as the dates of postings may vary from year to year.
Teaching Assistantships are available to undergraduate/graduate students registered in a program at Concordia University.
Students must be in good standing and not to have been found guilty of academic misconduct.
Please make sure that your class schedule does not conflict with any of the courses you apply to TA for as attending classes is typically part of TA duties.
Students apply in person by submitting the following documents in hard copy to the CMLL Department reception during regular business hours:
One application per student
Please note that it is NOT necessary to include your transcript along with the application form.
Candidates are selected by a Search Committee; for this reason, students should refrain from contacting individual instructors with job application-related inquiries. Once the selection process is complete, the successful candidates will be notified by email. Unsuccessful candidates will also be contacted.
NOTE: There is no seniority list and although previous teaching experience in the same or a similar position is considered, it does not ensure that the applicant will be selected automatically.
Teaching Assistants are paid on a bi-weekly basis on the average of the total number of hours assigned to the respective position. Arrangements related to the organization of the work schedule and distribution must be discussed with the instructor. Teaching Assistants are responsible for keeping track of the worked hours and for staying within limits of the number of hours assigned.
