Notes
  • Hours for a Physics TA vary from 30 to 50 per term and normally include some marking. If 30 hours or less are expected a * indicates a smaller work load. Experienced TAs may request to combine smaller jobs, for example, Setup and Float marking could be combined.
  • Marking must be done in a timely manner and in particular undergraduate TAs must complete marking before the exam period.
  • Marking Only and Help Centre jobs are more independent so a higher a GPA and experience is normally required.
