Applied Math Teaching Assistantships

If you are an undergraduate or graduate student interested in working as a teaching assistant or grader for an APMA (Applied Mathematics) course in the Summer 2024 sessions or the Fall 2024 semester, please click on one of the links below to submit an application. 

The deadline for Fall 2024 applications is August 10, 2024, but there is no guarantee that positions will still be available at that point. The deadline for summer courses depends on when individual courses begin; instructors will be hiring before each of the three sessions. 

Please take note of the following:

  1. Faculty periodically review the applications and will individually contact applicants. If there is a particular course or instructor you are interested in working with, you can follow up with an email to the instructor after you have submitted an application.
  2. If an instructor contacts you about TAing for their course, they will be able to explain the exact duties and responsibilities they are looking for. If the duties will include assisting the instructor in the classroom or in office hours, a one credit training course is required: APMA 3501 (for undergraduate teaching assistants) or APMA 6548 (for master's teaching assistants). If you have already taken the course, you don’t need to take it again.
  3. If you receive an offer for a teaching assistant position and agree to take it, you will receive several onboarding tasks in WORKDAY. You will need to complete all steps of onboarding two weeks before beginning work.
