Teaching Assistant Positions for on-line course

Queen's University and the Public Service Alliance of Canada have formed a new Collective Agreement for Graduate Teaching Assistants and Teaching Fellows. Teaching Assistant positions within the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures in collaboration with Continuing and Distance Studies are advertised in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures requires Teaching Assistantships for the following courses:

Latin Lovers: Love, Sex and Popular Culture

The course explores the emergence, development, and criticism of the Latin Lover figure in the West, from the creation of the archetypical Don Juan in the seventeenth-century to contemporary Hollywood representations of Italian and Latin-American lovers

Graduate TA-ships will only be offered to candidates in Group B, C or D after the qualified candidates in Group A have been exhausted. In addition we will do our best to match your preference to course offerings.

These teaching assistantships are for the support of online courses.  Some training and preparation is needed before the start of the course.  Candidates must be prepared to work outside the regular 9-5 work week, and have access to the internet and a computer that meets minimum requirements.  Experience with learning management systems (eg onQ) and videoconferencing software (e.g. Zoom or Adobe Connect) would be an asset. 

The actual number of hours of work will be determined depending on the course enrollment. The rate of pay is commensurate with the rates specified in the collective agreements of Teaching Assistants (PSAC)

A background in the humanities and excellent written English is required.

What to include in your application:

CV, unofficial transcripts and a one-paragraph statement of why you want to TA for a particular course, including a statement of relevant experience. 

Please forward your applications and other relevant material to Dr. Margaret Maliszewska, by 26 August 2020
