Job Posting: Graduate Writing Facilitator with Student Learning Commons

July 30, 2018

The Graduate Writing Facilitator is a paid position for a current SFU graduate student who is committed to helping graduate students develop and strengthen their writing. The Facilitator’s main duties are to (1) deliver (and in some cases, help to develop) writing workshops for graduate students, and (2) provide individual writing support for graduate students in-person and via email.

Teaching experience and/or extensive experience providing writing feedback is therefore a strong asset. Since some workshops take place late afternoons, evenings, and the occasional weekend, a flexible schedule is also an asset. Availability specifically for Saturday, September 15th and a portion of the first week of December will also be considered an advantage.

The Facilitator is based in the Student Learning Commons (SLC) in the Bennett Library, Burnaby, often in collaboration with the Research Commons (RC), but may also serve at SFU Surrey and SFU Vancouver campuses. The Facilitator works under the supervision of the SLC Writing Services Coordinator, in collaboration with the Writing Services Associate, and reports to the SLC Head.

Position start-date is September (or late August) 2018; applications will be accepted up to August 7 or until the position is filled. $25/hour (including benefits); 10-20 hours/week

Minimum Qualifications:

  • An undergraduate degree with a minimum 3.5 GPA
  • Excellent academic writing abilities
  • Excellent interpersonal communication skills
  • Demonstrable knowledge of academic writing processes and editorial conventions
  • Ability to work with students in groups and individually
  • Familiarity with computers and standard web browsers
  • Currently enrolled in an SFU Graduate Program
