*We typically only hire new TAs to begin fall quarter and complete a nine-month contract. Due to the rigorous nature of our TA training, we seldom, if ever, do mid-year searches. If we offer summer courses, those are only taught by current or former senior TAs who have advanced to candidacy and/or lecturers.
