Graduate Teaching Fellows

Graduate Teaching Fellows Application

he McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning invites applications from exceptional Princeton graduate student teachers from all disciplines to lead the upcoming Orientation to Teaching for new assistants in instruction (AI Orientation).

Past McGraw Graduate Teaching Fellows have found that this role provides an excellent opportunity to gain additional teaching experience while reflecting on and enhancing one’s development as a teacher, all of which can be helpful for both academic and non-academic job searches. Successful candidates will demonstrate a passion for teaching, a commitment to helping new teachers, and a willingness to collaborate in support of teaching and learning at Princeton.

Compensation is based on a rate of $25/hour, including time spent in training and preparation.

We are particularly interested in candidates who:

  • have experience or interest in research-based teaching strategies and active learning
  • are aware of or interested in learning more about best practices for inclusive teaching
  • bring a diverse array of perspectives to the role and are prepared to help develop workshops and resources on one or more of the following:
    • Creating an Inclusive Classroom
    • Leading Discussions in Humanities and Social Sciences
    • Leading Discussions in Science and Engineering
    • Effective Teaching in the Lab
    • Teaching Problem Solving
    • Acting as a liaison between your department and McGraw

Fellows must be available to participate in summer training workshops (dates TBD) and fall Orientation (Aug 31 - Sept 1, 2023). There is also a spring Orientation (Jan 25-26, 2024). It is expected that fellows will participate in both fall and spring Orientations if at all possible. Fellows may be invited to train for additional work (collaborating on workshops, consultations, and/or observations) during the academic year, but no ongoing commitment during the semester is required.

To apply, please submit a brief cover letter explaining your interest in the position and CV, which includes your teaching experience (including experience as an AI at Princeton).

Application reviews and interviews will occur on a rolling basis until open spots are filled. Generally, all spots are filled by May. Apply ASAP for the fullest consideration.

Please note that we seek broad departmental representation among the Grad Fellows, so where we have returning staff we may not be able to hire in all departments. Applicants in STEM departments are especially encouraged.
