Posted March 18, 2021
The Department of Theatre and Film hopes to appoint part-time Teaching Assistants from among the MA/MFA/Phd students to assist in the following courses:
Film Studies Course
- FIST 100-921 Intro to Film Studies – Lecture Term 1. May/June. There is a total of 2 positions available (each at 50%).
To apply for any of these positions, please submit your application materials to The Department of Theatre and Film Academic Administrator, Ian Patton via this online portal (https://thfl.air.arts.ubc.ca/?p=305)
Please note that the above listed TA positions are dependent on Department of Theatre and Film budget approval. Some positions will be appointed at 50% (half time) or 25% (quarter time) and will have their duties and salaries reduced accordingly.
Qualifications: At a minimum, the applicant will have a BA/BFA degree or its equivalent, with academic and/or professional experience. The applicant must have a solid knowledge of theatre history, film studies or film production, depending on the course for which they are applying. Students cannot always be assigned to the course that is their first choice, and so it is helpful to provide a range of courses for which you feel equipped to TA.
Duties: TAs may be required, at a minimum, to mark, attend classes, lead seminars, advise students, supervise production labs, hold office hours, give demonstrations and on occasion provide instruction in the courses they have been assigned to.
Hours of work: Varies by course. The average is 12 hours per week for 26 weeks (384 hours) for a full TA position. Please note that TA positions can range from 25% to 100% and hours are scaled accordingly.
Masters Students: GTA 2 $33.14/hour (as of Sept 1, 2020)
Doctoral Students: GTA 1 $34.44/hour (as of Sept 1, 2020)
