Eligibility

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.

Application procedure

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

  • Letter of presentation addressed to the Chair (include the title, number and section of the course(s) for which you apply for)
  • Academic experience related to the course(s)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Student ID number
  • Email address

Please note that it is NOT necessary to include your transcript along with the application form.

Selection Process

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.

Payment

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.
