Teaching Assistantships (TA) are co-ordinated and administered at the departmental level. TAs usually work an average of twelve hours a week. Pay rates are negotiated by the TA Union (CUPE 2278).
The call for TA position for each Winter session (September 1st to April 30th) is posted around February or March of each year. TAs for each Winter session are awarded during the summer preceeding each Winter session, and successful TA applicants are notified sometime in June or July.
Prospective Anthropology grad students who wish to be considered for a TA position in their incoming year should submit a TA application form and two (2) TA recommendation forms with their admission application package. Current Anthropology grad students who have not previously held a TA position within the department should submit a TA application form and two (2) TA recommendation forms to the Graduate Office no later than March 31st of each year.
More information can be found on the left sidebar.
