About Graduate Teaching Assistantships
Graduate Teaching Assistantships allow you to fund your PhD study through part-time teaching work with the University. The Graduate Teaching Assistant is responsible to the Head of School and the Director of Studies corresponding to the relevant area of research. The successful candidate is expected to undertake teaching related duties as required within the School, not normally exceeding the equivalent of seven contact hours per week during term time.
Funding for this post is available for four years. Appointment to the post is subject to formal confirmation that you are registered, and continue to be registered for the duration of your post, as a full-time campus-based student with the University of Leicester.
The successful applicant will receive an annual stipend and salary package currently worth £14,553 in 2017 and a full UK/EU tuition fee waiver. The positions will continue for four years, subject to a satisfactory annual progress review. The award covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate only.
