Academic Student Employees

Teaching Assistantship (TAship) positions for our Society and Genetics courses are available for graduate students throughout the year; contact our Student Affairs Officer.  Familiarity with the vocabulary and basic concepts of modern genetics is useful for TAship in SOCIETY AND GENETICS courses, as is a capacity to grasp and communicate with students about the ethical, legal, and social implications of modern genetics. The following courses require one or more graduate Teaching Apprentices each year: SOC GEN 5 (Fall or Winter), 101 (Winter), 102 (Spring), 105A (Fall or Winter), 105B (Fall or Winter), 108 (Spring), M140 (usually Fall,) M144 (usually Winter,) and 195CE (Fall/Winter/Spring).
