 *** ONLINE APPLICATION FORM LINK IS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE ***

All positions and hours are subject to sufficient enrolment and budgetary approval.  
In accordance with Article 12:1 of the CUPE 4580 Collective Agreement the School of Computer Science invites applications for Graduate Assistantship (GA) and Teaching Assistantship (TA) positions for the FALL 2021 term.  It is anticipated that all FALL 2021 courses will be in Windsor Online or Distance Education format and the requirements and duties listed have been redefined to support Windsor Online. 
 
Some labs may be held in person/ on campus. The University's health and safety protocols and public health and safety regulations that are in place at that time will be observed for any face-to-face or on-campus duties that may be required to support Fall term 2021 courses. In the online application (link below), applicants can indicate if they are willing to lead labs (yes or no response) on campus (in person). 
 
Some positions are open to both GAs and TAs; however, GA applicants are given priority.  
 
Each GA position is expected to be for a total of 140 hours. A limited number of GA positions may be available for fewer hours.   GA appointments cannot exceed 140 hours total for the Fall 2021 term period September 1st to December 31st, 2021. Refer to Articles 12, 13, and 14 of the CUPE 4580 Collective Agreement for eligibility details.  
 
The total number of hours of a TA appointment will depend on the number of applications received and is anticipated to be 75-100 hours per position.  Note that Teaching Assistants can be employed for no more than 100 TA hours per semester total. If you already hold or have applied for another TA position (in this or another department) note that the total combined hours for all TA appointments held in all departments cannot exceed 100 hours for the Fall term period from September 1st to December 31st, 2021. 
Each position can be comprised of a combination of any of the listed courses as needed.
