TEACHING ASSISTANTSHIPS @ OSU

  • 20-25 TAs are needed each semester in the Department of Microbiology, with 4 being sent to the Department of Biology. Microbiology 4000, Basic Microbiology, is the largest course and is taught every semester, so quite a few TAs will be assigned to that class.
  • The call for Spring 2017 TAs will begin early this Autumn Semester. Contact Program Coordinator Staci Schweinfurth (schweinfurth.22@osu.edu) for more information.
