Hello ECE student community,

We are now accepting applications for both TA and Grader positions for Autumn 2023.

Unlike previous quarters, we will open and close both the TA and Grader applications at the same time.

We are piloting a new form, so please email stepswan@uw.edu if you have any problems with the form.

TA Application Link: https://forms.office.com/r/wqpFDzN4NY

Grader Application Link: https://forms.office.com/r/8hHyxdDcbQ

You may apply for a TA position, a Grader position or both.

Note: Grader positions do not come with a tuition waiver and are paid hourly. PhD students should not apply for a Grader position as PhD students are on a guaranteed funding model.

A few reminders:

  • You must use your UW NetID to log into the forms
  • International students are required to meet policy 5.2 criteria to be eligible to TA
  • A resume is required. Please have a section where you list ALL skills (Java, Python, CUDA, OpenCL, GPU,  Verilog, etc). The rest of your resume should reflect all duties related to teaching, mentoring, tutoring or project leadership, etc.
  • If you are interested in EE 393, please provide a writing sample. Your essay on an application to your program or a course paper are examples you can use.
  • The Autumn 2023 PMP classes can be found at https://peden.ece.uw.edu/pmp/pmp-course-history/. Sometimes PMP classes can be difficult to match so if you are interested and have the skill sets needed, please list them.
  • The Autumn 2023 Daytime classes can be found at https://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/AUT2023/
  • Syllabus for Daytime undergraduate classes can be found at Course Descriptions – UWECE. Click on the Master Course Description link.
  • The TA website managed by our Lead TA, Sushree Jena will be updated for Autumn 2023. It has past workshop information and class supporting resources – https://wp.ece.uw.edu/eceta/resources/
  • PhD students are first priority and will take weeks to assign. Masters and Undergrads are generally not considered until 99% of our PhD’s are place so please be patient.
  • To broaden opportunities, Masters and Undergrads should reach out to other departments in which they have the skills and knowledge to inquire about TA positions and processes.
  • You have a higher chance of finding a TA position if you list up to the maximum of 8 classes that you are confident you have the skills to TA.
  • A list of courses that *might* receive a TA position based on previous enrollment patterns can be found here. This is not a complete list and not all courses will be offered in Autumn. Please compare this list to the Autumn 2023 Time Schedule.

The deadline to apply is Friday, August 8 by 5 pm.
