Graduate Teaching Assistantship Information

University of Wyoming Program in Ecology students teach in the LIFE program

Graduate students in the Program in Ecology (PiE) are encouraged to apply for funding in the spring semester for a one-year Standard or Expanded Graduate Teaching Assistantship.  These Graduate Teaching Assistantship’s are intended to serve as bridge funding, rather than full support for a PhD program.  Priority will be given to senior PiE students (post-preliminary exams) who have never received a PiE Graduate Teaching Assistantship. 

 

Standard & Expanded Teaching Assistantship Responsibilities: 

 

Standard Graduate Teaching Assistant: Will assist primary instructor in the fall and spring semester with typical teaching assistant duties to include; teaching, leading labs, grading, etc. in the LIFE program, usually for the LIFE 1010 (intro biology) course. 

Expanded Graduate Teaching Assistant:  Will take a more leadership role in the process of developing and delivering lectures, evaluating and more for the General Ecology course in the LIFE program.  Only one Expanded Graduate Teaching Assistantship is awarded; the student works closely with the primary instructor(s) on this Graduate Teaching Assistantship.  The Expanded Graduate Teaching Assistantship does take more time than the Standard Graduate Teaching Assistantship but will give you more direct experience with teaching courses.  Interested students can email Chris North with questions.

  • Application Deadline: Friday, March 27th, 2020 by 12:00 pm
