About the Writing and Learning Center

The UNC Writing and Learning Center is hiring Teaching Assistants for the 2021-2022 academic year. These enthusiastic, student-centered graduate students will serve as Graduate Writing Coaches and Graduate Learning Coaches.

Full-time, degree-seeking graduate students in all UNC-Chapel Hill schools and departments may apply. TAs work 15 hours per week, are eligible for health insurance, and receive the University minimum TA stipend, which was $7,850/semester this past academic year. While the Writing and Learning Center does not directly provide tuition support, employment often makes graduate students eligible for such support from their departments. Work locations and formats will be determined at a later date after we have more information about the COVID-19 pandemic and the University’s plans for Fall 2021.

Joining the Writing and Learning Center staff is a great opportunity to work in a dynamic, student-centered community of professionals dedicated to serving UNC students. Past Teaching Assistants have found that their Writing and Learning Center training and experience are valued by employers and have described their work as one of their best graduate school experiences.

Graduate Learning Coaches

Graduate Learning Coaches provide academic coaching to individuals and groups. Coaching is a popular method of working with students that help them develop the organizational, time management, and study skills they need as they learn to balance the responsibilities of college and face increased academic expectations. Graduate Learning Coaches also contribute to staff meetings, develop web materials, deliver workshops, and participate in other activities related to our overall mission.
