Student Employment in the Department
We often need undergraduate and graduate students to be teaching assistants in the introductory laboratories, be a supplemental instruction leader, be a grader for a particular course, cover hours in the tutor room, or assist with other departmental needs related to teaching or research. We also get requests from AFRL and contractors to help find students for internships.
Laboratory Teaching Assistant
Teach laboratories for the PHY 1100, PHY 1120, PHY 2400, PHY 2410, PHY 1050, or PHY 1060 introductory or general education courses.
Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Supplemental Instruction instructors help students review course concepts, improve their study habits, and become better prepared for exams and course assignments. A trained SI student leader, working in consultation with the professor, conducts routine SI group study sessions outside of the class throughout the quarter. Students enrolled in the class may attend as many free SI sessions as they desire to review course material and have concepts reinforced.
Grade homework for the PHY 1100, PHY 1120, PHY 2400, PHY 2410, PHY 1050, or PHY 1060 introductory or general education courses and, on some occasions, mid-level physics majors courses.
Be available to answer walk-in questions in the tutor room, mostly related to the introductory physics courses (PHY 1100, PHY 1120, PHY 2400, PHY 2410).
