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 WINTER 2022 term.   
 
It is anticipated that all WINTER 2022 courses will be on campus (excluding the Distance Education courses).  All GA/TA employees are expected to make themselves available, and are required to report for all assigned duties, both on-campus and online.  
 
All classes and labs will be on campus unless otherwise specified.  The University of Windsor health and safety protocols and public health and safety regulations that are in place will be observed for any face-to-face or on-campus duties required to support Winter term 2022 courses.  
 
Note: The on-campus requirement may be subject to change, pending any University of Windsor announcements. 
 
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 WINTER 2022 term period January 1st to April 30th, 2022.

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 Winter term period from January 1st to April 30th, 2022.  
 
Each position can be comprised of a combination of any of the listed courses as needed.
