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 2022 term.  
 
All FALL 2022 courses and labs will be on campus (excluding the Distance Education courses).  All GA/TA employees must make themselves available, and must be available for all assigned duties, both on-campus and online.  
 
The University of Windsor health and safety protocols and public health and safety regulations that are in place must be observed for any face-to-face or on-campus duties required to support FALL 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 FALL 2022 term period September 1 to December 31, 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 FALL term period from September 1 to December 31, 2022. 
 
Each position can be comprised of a combination of any of the listed courses as needed. 
 
Most positions are 12-week duration (September 1 to December 31, 2022), except the two 6-week intersession courses in bold below.

Note 1:   Graduate Student Information 

A)      Phase I information:  Graduate students must maintain fulltime registration throughout the term and must be in good standing in the degree program to hold a GA position. Students who meet the Phase I tuition refund deadline for the Fall 2022 term are therefore not eligible to hold a GA in the same term. See Faculty of Graduate Studies Important Dates.  
B)      Graduate Assistants must apply each term by the application deadline, in accordance with Article 13: "With respect to those students who have applied for and been accepted for Assistantships, the Assistant will not be paid for any shortfall of hours at the end of their respective program, provided the University has satisfied its obligation to post available positions each term in writing and on the AAU website and to offer the minimum terms of support in accordance with Article 13:01 (a) & (b) and provided that the Assistant has applied in writing or via e-mail by the application deadline for each term until they have received the minimum terms of support in accordance with Article 13:01 (a) & (b)."   
C)      MAC information: The Master of Applied Computing Program (MAC) is not an eligible program to support GA funded positions. Consequently, applications from students registered in the MAC program will not be eligible for consideration.  
 
Note 2: Undergraduate Student Information 
Undergraduate students must be registered throughout the term and must be in good standing in the degree program to hold a TA position.  
 
International undergraduate students must be registered fulltime and be in good standing to hold a TA position.
