Information about Teaching Assistant positions

It is necessary to re-apply for a TA position each semester or term you wish to work. You will not automatically carry over from semester to semester, and, depending on the department needs, you may not even be hired for a subsequent semester.

We give preference to physics & astronomy majors and experienced TAs.

Our department pay scale is shown on this page.


 We usually will not hire people with poor grades in their physics classes.

Tutorial Lab

We are currently not operating a formal tutorial lab.  TAs are assigned to a class and the instructor may have some tutorial type hours, but we do not make offers as only Tutorial Lab.

Lab TAs

In order to work as a lab TA, you must have completed the course with a good grade. Or complete a higher level of the material.

Coursework Requirements

  • To work in the 107 lab you need to complete either Phscs 105 or Phscs 121 (or have taken Phscs 107)
  • To work in the 108 lab you need to complete either Phscs 106 or Phscs 123 and 220 (or have taken Phscs 108)


We hire graders for many of our classes.  In order to be considered as a grader it is necessary that you have completed the class with a good grade.
