Fall 2021

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, June 18, 2021.

Here are the courses expected to have TA positions:

 History & Classical Studies TA Positions

Applicants must be students registered in a McGill graduate program.

Please note that given the planned resumption of most in-person teaching activities in the Fall, Teaching Assistants will be required on campus to perform their tasks in person. Should government restrictions prohibit the resumption of in-person teaching activities, courses will revert to remote teaching. In the event of such a change, Teaching Assistants will be advised as soon as possible. Teaching Assistants may be required to perform tasks suited to a remote/online teaching environment using a virtual learning platform [e.g., Zoom, WebEx] and the McGill myCourses learning management system.
