The Environmental and Urban Studies (ENST) major program is seeking multiple teaching assistants for Spring 2023 courses. Qualified applicants will have a background in environmental studies, approached from any discipline. The TA is expected to attend class sessions, hold office hours and grade written work for a single course. A full list of ENST spring courses is provided below. Full course descriptions can be found on the College catalog. Applicants may identify specific course interests or submit a general letter of interest. Teaching assistants will be assigned based on need and applicant qualifications. Interested applicants should apply by sending a CV, statement of teaching experience, and names of at least two references to Sabina Shaikh, CEGU’s Director of Undergraduate Studies.

PhD students in the Division of the Social Sciences, Division of the Humanities, Divinity School, and Crown School who matriculated in Summer 2016 or later may only accept College teaching positions that count toward their degree program’s teaching requirement.
