Teaching Assistant


The Department of Anthropology at UBC invites eligible graduate students to apply for the Senior Graduate Teaching Assistant (STA) position for 2017 – 2018.


Senior Teaching Assistant (STA)


A Senior TA is a graduate student who is registered in a masters’ or doctoral program at the University of British Columbia and is required by the University to perform lead hand duties as a Teaching Assistant. These duties typically include coordinating other Teaching Assistants and providing guidance, technical knowledge, and subject matter expertise to other Teaching Assistants.


This is a new classification that provides the University with an ability to recognize a Teaching Assistant who is tasked with leadership responsibility within a cohort of TAs assigned to a course. It is not a supervisory position; rather, it is an opportunity for the University to formally recognize the reality of a role performed by certain TAs….

Please see the attached eligibility and instructions to apply.


Please complete the STA application form and attach a brief CV highlighting teaching experience, accomplishments and training.

Completed applications should be submitted to the Anth Graduate Office via e-mail at anth.grad@ubc.ca by Wednesday August 16, 2017.
