Teaching Assistant Positions in Chemistry: The Department of Chemistry employs many graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) to teach introductory and intermediate chemistry courses. Although the majority of our TAs are associated with the chemistry department, we often have positions available during the fall and spring semesters for TAs from other departments.

Eligibility Requirements: 

  • Graduate students with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, biochemistry,
  • A minimum of two years of college chemistry is required,
  • and the majority of successful applicants have also studied physical chemistry.
  • Non-native English speakers must have a satisfactory score on the SPEAK test.

Description of Duties

A teaching assistantship in chemistry is a 50 percent appointment, averaging 20 hours a week. Most TAs who are hired from outside departments will teach in one of our introductory-level courses (Chem 103, 104, 108, or 109), which consist of lecture, lab, and discussion classes. A faculty or staff instructor oversees the course and teaches the lectures. TAs are responsible for two sections of students (~22 students per section) and teach the lab and discussion classes for those students. Other responsibilities include attending lectures and staff meetings, holding office hours, proctoring exams, and grading.

How to Apply / Deadline

Please deliver a completed Chemistry TA Application (.pdf), your resume, and copies of your college transcripts to the Undergraduate Chemistry Office, Room 1328 Chemistry Building. The assured consideration date is six weeks prior to the start of the semester. However, we will continue to accept applications after this date until all positions are filled. If you are unable to deliver your application materials in person, you may send them to:

Contact / address: Nora Burnham, undergraduate services specialist
Department of Chemistry
University of Wisconsin–Madison
1101 University Ave.
Madison, WI 53706

Faculty Assistant (FA) Positions in Chemistry

Interested candidates who are not graduate students should apply as faculty assistants (FAs). A position vacancy listing (PVL) is usually posted on the UW-Madison Office of Human Resources website and on the Department of Chemistry Employment Opportunities page approximately three months prior to the start of the semester.
