The School of History, Classics & Archaeology is able to offer a wide range of part-time tutoring and demonstrating jobs to research postgraduate students who are currently studying at the University of Edinburgh.
These Teaching Support posts mean we can commit to providing faster feedback to students, whilst ensuring that tutor groups can be kept to a minimum size.
We also hope that you will benefit from this exposure to the teaching environment. Previous employees have reported that this type of work provides a valuable insight for those considering a career in academia and useful transferable skills for those of you whose future lies elsewhere. Work on a particular course might also improve your knowledge of a subject area, or open up new research opportunities.
Tutoring and demonstrating work will be offered to existing Teaching Support staff in the first instance, ensuring that contracted Guaranteed Hours staff receive an offer of work that covers the minimum number of contracted hours. Where there are still remaining positions to fill, new applicants will be considered.
