Graduate Teaching Assistantships


Because of the nature of the work involved with our assistantships, the Department typically hires teaching assistants only from within mathematics graduate programs. The hiring process is managed internally within the department. 

In rare circumstances, we have hired graduate students from other programs who meet our required qualifications. If you are not a graduate student in mathematics, you may notify us of your interest in an assistantship by submitting your qualifications; however, we cannot guarantee availability of any graduate assistantships with the Department of Mathematics and we do not guarantee a response to your inquiries.
