STUDENTS

Each academic year, we have openings for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) and possibly Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs) for courses in FCCS for the September and January terms. Individual faculty also offer Research Assistant positions for both graduate and undergraduate students. RAs are employment opportunities for qualified students offered by faculty members with research grants and contracts.

We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person.
