Employment Opportunities

Teaching Assistantships

The School of Religious Studies hires graduate students as teaching assistants during the academic year. Students must apply for the positions on a term to term basis. Teaching assistant positions are for a maximum of 180 hours per term. Please consult our Academic Jobs page for Teaching Assistant Postings. These positions are independent of fellowship awards at McGill. Fellowships are awarded without consideration of, but may be combined with, teaching assistant positions.

Sessional Teaching

The School posts all course lecturer positions on our Academic Jobs page. PhD students nearing the completion of their degrees are encouraged to apply for positions in their area of expertise. The following considerations will normally apply: strength in the area to be taught; nearness to completion of degree; a history of steady progress in the program; record of previous teaching.

McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS)

The McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS) assists students in their career development and search for permanent, part-time, and summer jobs, as well as internships, by providing workshops, individual advising, a comprehensive job posting service, and an extensive Career Resource Center.
