DU/Iliff Joint PhD Program

Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs)

Graduate teaching assistantships are intended to provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable teaching assistance by working closely with a faculty member in an undergraduate or master’s level course. A limited number of positions are offered each year on a competitive basis. Only students in their second and third years of study are eligible to serve as GTAs.

A call for applications will be sent to students annually during the spring quarter for positions available during the upcoming year. Every effort will be made to place successful candidates in a position that corresponds with their research interests and teaching capabilities. GTAs will be compensated at the rate of $2,000 per position, per quarter.

Please note that, per university policy, students are not eligible for employment in work-study positions while they are working as GTAs. GTAs must demonstrate fluency in spoken English by scoring a 26 on the TOEFL speaking section or an 8 on the IELTS speaking section. All GTAs must be legally eligible to work in the United States.
