Postgraduate Teaching Assistants  (PGTA) 2018-19

Applications are now open for UCL Geography PGTAs. The Department has opportunities for research students to acquire teaching experience through PGTA roles. Students with appropriate expertise and skills may support academic course leaders by demonstrating methods and techniques, facilitating undergraduate seminar and reading groups, marking and discussing formative assessment and similar work. Participation in teaching support counts towards research training credit as defined by the UCL Doctoral School.

Successful applicants will have a relevant first degree, and currently be pursuing a research degree in Geography or a closely related discipline. Selection for duties will be based on relevant knowledge and skills and the department's wish to enable as many students as possible to acquire teaching experience.

Salary is set at UCL Grade 5 scale starting at £12.62 per hour including London Allowance, standard preparation time is included where necessary for the work, and duties are usually offered on an 'as and when' basis.

All new PGTAs are required to attend the UCL Arena One – Teaching Associate Programme Gateway workshop and Department specific induction sessions. PGTAs are responsible for signing up for a workshop at an appropriate time.

Further information:

New applicants should mail the application as one PDF document to Suse Keay; PGTAs continuing from previous years just need to send an email of interest in the course(s).

Applications are considered on a rolling-basis but please apply by 27 July if you wish to be considered in the first round for duties in the first term. Right to Work documentation must have been checked in the department before work can be offered and Tier 4 students will be required to provide a completed Timesheet of any other paid and unpaid work in advance.
