TA positions available, Emory Department of Biology

Emory’s Department of Biology has opened applications for Fall Intro Bio Lab Instructor positions, which are a great way to gain teaching experience. Lab Instructors may be Emory graduate students, postdocs, faculty or staff, or people outside of Emory with biology research experience. Paid Instructors receive $2000-2500 for each section of BIOL 120 they teach and $2500-3000 for each section of BIOL 141 they teach. Graduate students can either be paid or earn credit for their PhD TA requirement. Our lab course learning goals focus on research skills, scientific communication, and collaboration. Instructors are trained with weekly prep meetings and provided with lab materials, power points and rubrics for each lab period. Additionally, an undergraduate Learning Assistant is assigned to each section to provide hands-on support during lab. Instructors receive mid- and end-of-semester student evaluations, training in pedagogical techniques, and mentoring from the Lab Director and experienced Instructors. Lab projects are organized into multi-week modules using model systems such as bacteria, yeast, bean beetles, and C. elegans. Background with basic biology and research skills are required but no prior experience with the systems or techniques are needed as these are introduced in Instructor prep meetings. The Fall semester runs from August 28th to December 10th. Applications are considered on a rolling basis . Please contact Megan Cole at mfcole [at] emory [dot] edu with any questions.
