General Information

  • Teaching Assistantships are available in the Department and their allocation is governed by a Union Collective Agreement – CUPE 3902 Unit 1.
  • TA job postings can be found on the University of Toronto CUPE 3902 Unit 1 Job Posting Board.  They may also be sent electronically to graduate applicant alias and/or posted on the CUPE 3902 Bulletin Board across the hall from the ECE Undergraduate Studies Office, Sandford Fleming Building Basement Room 600A.
  • All jobs are posted in accordance with the CUPE 3902 Unit 1 Collective Agreement. It is understood that some announcements of vacancies are tentative, pending final course determinations and enrollment and approval of the Associate Chairs of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies.
  • TAships are not part of the ECE funding package and therefore there is no guarantee that a graduate student will receive a TAship from ECE.  Students are encouraged to apply for any positions they are qualified for at ECE or other departments.
  • The Department considers all completed on-line applications submitted by the deadline but the competition for certain jobs can be keen. A position cannot be guaranteed.  Please note that a complete application includes all fields and course preferences completed/updated and includes a Teaching resume.
  • Hiring preference is given to current or admitted graduate students.
  • It is the University’s (and the Department’s) expectation that TA employees must be available to fulfill the duties required during the time-frame set out in the letter of offer unless they are absent or on leave in accordance with the collective agreement as approved by their supervisor (Course Coordinator/Instructor).
