The Department of History & Classical Studies is searching for eligible candidates as Teaching Assistants for the Winter 2023 term.

Positions are only available to McGill graduate students.

Please note that given the resumption of most in-person teaching activities, Teaching Assistants will be required on campus to perform their tasks in person. Should government restrictions prohibit the resumption of in-person teaching activities, courses will revert to remote teaching. In the event of such a change, Teaching Assistants will be advised as soon as possible.  Teaching Assistants may be required to perform tasks suited to a remote/online teaching environment using a virtual learning platform [e.g., Zoom, WebEx] and the McGill myCourses learning management system.

Postings are considered tentative pending the final determination of course offerings and enrolments. Due to insufficient enrolment in courses, not all courses posted may require a TA.
