PhDs: paid teaching roles for new online “Understanding Mental Health” unit

The University of Manchester’s University College for Interdisciplinary Learning is looking for 8 Graduate Teaching Assistants to work on the UCIL interdisciplinary online unit “Understanding Mental Health”.

The roles are open to PGR students in any discipline at the University of Manchester. You don’t need to be an expert in mental health – if you’re interested in supporting undergrads who are curious to learn more about this very important topic, you could be just what we need.

The original deadline for applications was Friday 25th January 2019 – but it’s being extended to Monday 28th January.  Start date for the unit is Wednesday 30th January (eek – fast-learners welcome 😀 !)

About the roles:

Understanding Mental Health is delivered entirely online in Semester 2, 2018-19.

The unit is interdisciplinary and GTAs from a wide range of disciplines may apply.

Working as a GTA on a UCIL online unit is a great opportunity to develop skills and experience in undergraduate tutoring and assessment. It could also show your versatility in being able to communicate outside your discipline if mental health isn’t part of your research, plus you’ll get the chance to add innovative online tutoring to your CV.

GTAs will receive training and support in all aspects of the role (and the roles are paid, of course).

Deadline for applications is Monday 28th January 2019.  Successful applicants will need to be able to start immediately.
