Applicants for these positions should be full-time graduate students at the time of employment, who have at least a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in Statistics. Desired skill set may vary depending on the course.
Successful candidates will be assigned duties by the course instructors, which could include marking Statistics papers, homework and exams, conducting tutorials and laboratories, holding office hours, invigilating exams, assisting instructors with course content development, updating the course webpage, answering emails, and various other duties. Markers will assist with marking when needed, and will only be required to mark from a provided answer key. There will be approximately 20 FTE positions available for the 2016-2017 winter session.
Students will be paid amounts as negotiated in the collective agreement. Currently, GTA 1’s (students holding a master's degree) will be paid $31.04 per hour and GTA 2’s (students holding a bachelor's degree) will be paid $29.87 per hour. Markers will be paid $14.15 per hour, and undergraduate TAs will be paid $14.90 per hour. Wages will increase on July 1, 2016 because of the Economic Stability Dividend and again on September 1, 2016 as part of the negotiated wage increases in the last round of bargaining.
