As an undergraduate teaching assistant, you will assist other students in classes you have already taken.
We need UTAs for several very different classes, and so we are interested in candidates with any one or more of the following skills: strong English writing; strong presentation capability; strong coding skills; expertise in Python, Java, or C; expertise in hardware architectures, digital logic, or systems coding. It is also helpful to have performed well in previous classes in the CS major, but we very often have UTAs beyond CS students.
The UTA position is an hourly wages job that is meant to work with and around your school schedule. You may be able to work as few as 2 hours per week or as many as 15-20, depending upon your experience and what is needed for the class(es) you assist with. Also, many of a UTA's duties can be done at home, and so the hours are often highly flexible. It helps if you're a CS major, but we often hire UTAs beyond CS students, so long as you possess the required skills.
UTAs are hired (or rehired) each semester. Typically, more positions are available in the fall than in the spring, because we give preference to students who have previously worked successfully as UTAs.
To apply, complete the application on HireMason and submit all of the supplementary materials by the "primary application deadline." You can apply later, but applications received by that date will get first priority. Please search for the job posting on HireMason for additional details.
Please note that you must already be accepted as a GMU student to apply for an undergraduate teaching assistantship.
