February 5, 2024

We are now accepting applications for both TA and Grader positions for Spring 2024.

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.

The deadline to apply is Monday, February 19th, at 11:59 pm.

 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. If you do not meet this eligibility, you will not be considered. Steps on how to meet eligibility are outlined in policy 5.2.
  • 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.
  • The Spring 2024 PMP classes can be found at https://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/SPR2024/95index.html#ENG. You need to look at both the EE and EE P designations.  PMP classes can be difficult to match so if you are interested and have the skill sets needed, please list the PMP classes as your chances are greater.
  • The Spring 2024 Daytime classes can be found at https://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/SPR2024/ee.html.
  • 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 Spring 2024. It has past workshop information and class supporting resources – https://wp.ece.uw.edu/eceta/resources/. A short summary of how TA’s are assigned will be posted there soon.
  • PhD students are first priority and will take weeks to assign. Masters and Undergrad students are generally not considered until 99% of our PhD’s are place so please be patient.
  • To broaden opportunities, Masters and Undergrad students 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. You can also add additional classes in the notes section.
  • 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 Winter. Please compare this list to the Spring 2024 Time Schedule.
  • The classes we will not be managing assignments for are
    • EE 371 (joint with CSE who is managing TA’s)
    • EE 470 (joint with CSE who is managing TA’s)
    • EE 474 (joint with CSE who is managing TA’s)
    • EE 548 (joint with AA/ME. AA is managing TA’s)
    • EE 593 (joint with ME/AA. ME is managing TA’s)
    • EE 594 (joint with ME/AA. ME is managing TA’s)
  • A final reminder that there is NO GUARANTEE of receiving a TA position, even if a professor suggests you apply. Masters and Undergraduate students should be seeking other funding options. Please check Handshake and don’t forget to contact other departments in which you have the skills to TA. This could be in a language department in which you are fluent or any other subject in which you feel you can be helpful.
