TFs and TAs for LS 1b Genetics, Genomics, and Evolution: Spring 2017
Life Sciences 1B is an interdisciplinary course designed to teach genetics and genomics in an evolutionary framework. The course is taught at the introductory level and the majority of students are freshmen. We take an integrated approach, showing how evolution and genetics are intimately related and how genomics provides tools to analyze case studies of human disease, normal variation, and evolution. The course instructors are Professors Kevin Eggan, Pardis Sabeti, and Hopi Hoekstra.
Teaching Fellow Duties:
Teaching fellows lead a weekly section that combines laboratory and discussion and grade all section assignments, including labs and problem sets. TFs must also attend all lectures (TuTh 10-11:30am in the Science Center), staff meetings (Th 11:30am -12:30pm) and lab pre-runs. Additional duties include proctoring or helping to prepare for exams and problem sets and attending all staff meetings. Teaching Fellows and Teaching Assistants are compensated $10,600 (post-docs and G3 or more senior) or $9,400 (G1 or G2, and some TAs) per section taught for the semester.
To Apply for a Position:
Fill out an application (found at http://www.mcb.harvard.edu/mcb/p/applicationforms/) and email it to us at email@example.com, along with a current CV. Applicants who are not currently Harvard graduate students should fill out the “teaching assistant” application.
