Teaching Assistant Positions

Winter 2023

Applications are now open. The deadline to submit applications is Monday, November 21, 2022.

Applicants must be students registered in a McGill graduate program.

Please note that given the resumption of most in-person teaching activities, 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.
