The Biological Sciences Program, within the College of Computer, Mathematical
and Natural Sciences, will employ Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs)
Spring 2018 in a program designed to develop teaching and communication
skills, organization ability, knowledge, and leadership. Each UTA will be
supervised by the lab or discussion coordinator for the course they are
assigned to, and will be required to perform the duties typically expected of
a teaching assistant.  

UTA duties will include:

(see below for times)

New UTAs teaching labs must attend a lab safety training session prior to or
during the first week of classes. This work will require 10 - 15 hours per
week, depending on the course requirements.  The stipend is $1500.00 for
the semester, paid in an hourly wage.  Undergraduate students will be hired
for only one UTA position in any given semester, but will be allowed to apply
