Lab Instructional Assistants
The department is currently accepting applications from students interested in assisting with spring and/or fall mathematics laboratories; the deadline to apply for either term is March 26, 2017. Winter applications will be accepted during the fall term.
Markers and Proctors
The department employs senior students on a piecework basis to proctor midterm tests and to mark assignments, quizzes and midterm tests in many of its courses. In September, students in senior mathematics courses may register their availability for this work.
Teaching Assistantships are available to full-time students in the Master of Science in Mathematics program. Students are eligible for a maximum of two teaching assistantships over the course of the program. You must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to be eligible.
The chair of Mathematics and the graduate coordinator will decide on the allocation of teaching assistantships to students each academic year. Once you have been assigned to TA a particular course, you should meet with the course coordinator to discuss the duties you will be expected to fulfil. Each course will have a Teaching Assistant Job Responsibility form that you and the instructor must sign. The signed forms are to be submitted to the mathematics office for the signature of the graduate coordinator. The forms must be sent to the Faculty of Graduate Studies by the end of the second week of classes for payroll to be processed.
Research assistantships may be availble to certain graduate students in Mathematics. Contact individual faculty for information. All full-time students are eligible.
