Postdoctoral Teaching Assistants (PTAs) may function in a variety of roles in the Graduate and Medical Schools.  Only Postdoctoral Fellows in good standing may be PTAs. Remuneration rate is $40 for lecture hour or $45 for one-on-one tutoring hour. PTAs will need to obtain written permission by their PI and work under guidance and supervision of the PI/Course Director.  The PTA experience will require careful planning and monitoring to ensure that the PTA, the student, and the PI/Course Director benefit from the relationship. Duties will vary from course to course. PI/Course Directors are encouraged to provide feedback and mentoring to the PTA on an ongoing basis. At the end of the course, the PTA will be evaluated using the Teaching Evaluation Form.
