The Writing and Learning Center seeks enthusiastic, student-centered graduate students to apply for Teaching Assistantships in the 2022-2023 academic year. They are hiring TAs to serve as Graduate Writing Coaches and Graduate Learning Coaches from a diverse applicant pool and staff from a variety of fields and backgrounds.

Applications for both positions are due on Monday, March 7. You are welcome to apply to one or both positions. 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 a stipend of $8500/semester. While the Writing and Learning Center does not directly provide tuition support, employment here often makes graduate students eligible for such support from their departments. These are expected to be on-campus positions.

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 working with us as one of their best graduate school experiences.
