Fall 2018 SEDRD GTA Positions Posted (deadline July 27, 2018)

Posted on Friday, July 13th, 2018

The Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA) positions for the Fall 2018 semester have now been posted. The deadline for applications is July 27, 2018. In order to be considered for a position, you must apply online at www.uoguelph.ca/sessional_ta/.

In order to apply for these positions, you must be logged into the site. Instructions can be found here: https://www.uoguelph.ca/sessional_ta/faq/how-do-i-apply-teaching-assistant-tagsa-1-work-assignment. Please note that you must use your uoguelph.ca email account or you will not be able to apply. Please do not create a new account.

You can apply to multiple positions. Please note that "consider me for all other positions in the department" will only apply if there are no qualified candidates who have applied for a position - in SEDRD, this is rare. The best way to ensure that your application is considered for a position is to apply directly to that position. 

Remember: you will be assessed based on your application. Include all relevant details, paying particular attention to the qualifications listed in the posting. You will be able to upload a CV in addition to the online form - if you would like to include a cover letter,  you will need to merge the cover letter and CV as the system only allows for one file to be attached. It is important that the selection committee is able to assess your file based on the information you have provided in your application. 

Levels of Consideration:
LOC #1 - These are students who have been guaranteed a GTA position in their offer letter (this does not apply to SEDRD students at this time)
LOC #2 - Students within their prescribed program period (Masters is 6 full-time semesters; PhD is 9 full-time semesters). Most SEDRD applications will fall in this category.
LOC #3 - Students who are outside of their prescribed program period (i.e. beyond the time-frames listed above)

Please see the following FAQs for details on JSP and LOC questions:
