Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker Positions

In order to be appointed a person must have sufficient knowledge in the discipline of the course to interpret the course material, competency in oral and written English, and willingness to undertake some specific course designation training sessions.  Students interested in Teaching Assistant or Tutor-Marker positions should inquire about training sessions. 

Students must complete and submit the TA/TM application form by the posted deadline to be considered for a position. 

All positions are subject to enrollment and funding.

TA/TM Appointment Priorities

In allocating Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker positions, the School of Criminology will also take into account any or all of the following:


1. Suitability for particular courses (e.g. discipline of prior degree(s), publications, experience, instructor preference);

2. Applicant’s preferences.

If an assignment within a priority group requires a selection between applicants, the graduate student without financial support from merit based scholarships or merit based fellowships during the semester of appointment will have priority for the appointment.

In accordance with the Collective Agreement, the assignment given a Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker will not normally be fewer than three (3) or more than seven (7) base units, although it is not possible for the School of Criminology to guarantee applicants an appointment to a particular course and/or to a particular number of tutorials in any given semester.
