Position Openings

Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (UTA)

Each semester, we seek undergraduate students who are interested in being UTAs for selected APMA courses. UTAs are an integral part of our teaching effort and play an important role.  Responsibilities include assisting with recitation sessions or study sections, holding office hours where students can get guidance on topics arising from the course, and helping review student assignments.  Through peer-to-peer engagement, UTAs can play a very positive role in shaping a student’s perspective on the learning and application of applied mathematics.  Serving as a UTA can also be a learning experience, developing communication skills and reinforcing one’s own knowledge of course topics.

UTAs receive an hourly wage, but we do not currently give course credit for being a UTA. UTA positions are advertised in Workday.  Usually, positions are advertised in mid-April (and then possibly again in mid-September) for the fall semester, and in mid-November (and possibly again in early February) for the spring semester.

For the current academic year 2020-2021, with the three semesters, we are now asking for applications for UTA positions for the spring semester and these should be submitted before November 30. We will begin applications for UTAs for the summer semester in mid-March. This will probably be combined with applications for the following fall semester. Specific dates will be set when the dates for course registration are posted.
