Teaching Assistant Position in the Contemporary Studies Programme

The Contemporary Studies Programme at the University of King’s College invites applications for one (1) Teaching Assistant position for “Modern Social and Political Thought” (CTMP2000) in the 2012-13 academic year. This class is a broad, introductory survey of social and political thought from the early nineteenth century to the present day.

Duties include:

  • reading course material (on own time);
  • attending lectures and conducting tutorials (3hrs/week);
  • marking essays (4/yr);
  • holding office hours (1hr/week);
  • and meeting occasionally with the professor.

Candidates may come from various fields but should have at least an undergraduate degree. Graduates who have taken the Foundation Year Programme or other courses at King’s, or who have pursued interdisciplinary interests elsewhere, are particularly encouraged to apply.

The appointment will be at the level of TA260, and the pay scale will match the collective agreement between Dalhousie and CUPE.

The University of King’s College is an equal opportunity employer. Applications should be received no later than Monday, September 17, 2012.
