Graduate Employment Opportunities

Associate instructor Academic Year Assistantships

The Student Academic Center employs approximately 18 associate instructors. The number of openings varies from year to year, and some positions require specific subject knowledge.

Position Description

Assignments are on a 10-month basis (August through May) for 18 hours per week. In addition to teaching responsibilities, instructors will be involved in outreach presentations, workshops, one-on-one student instruction via the Individualized Academic Assistance Program, inservice training sessions, and professional seminars. Assignments beyond teaching are determined by calculation of specific teaching assignments as related to the distribution of the l8-hour/week assignment. Teaching assignments are not limited to one course area, and may vary from one session to the next.

Qualifications

AIs are selected on the basis of teaching experience, academic background, intellectual abilities, and organizational skills.

Candidates must:

  • be admitted to an Indiana University graduate program
  • be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours each semester
  • be knowledgeable about, willing to learn, basic computer applications (email, WWW, etc.)

Preference is given to:

  • doctoral-level candidates
  • candidates with previous coursework experience that is applicable to the position

 

Application Process

 

Applications are available beginning in January of each academic year for the next year’s session. Applications will be accepted until March 1.  Apply here.

We acknowledge that the experience of teaching at the SAC is both rewarding and occasionally trying. While we value experience, we also anticipate the possibility of burnout among our instructional staff. In doing so we respect the discretion of individual coordinators with regard to hiring and maintaining a quality staff while at the same time recognizing that a commitment of more than three years to a single SAC assignment might prove detrimental to the best interests of both graduate AIs and undergraduate students.

Summer Teaching Opportunity: Student Academic Center (due 1 MAR 2015)

The Student Academic Center invites applications for graduate students for associate instructor positions during summer 2015.  More information is available on our website http://sac.indiana.edu/employment/grademploy/

 

 

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION NO LATER THAN MARCH 1, 2015.

 

If you have any questions feel free to email me.  The application is available online.

Victorian Studies Editorial Assistantships (deadline 26 FEB 2015)

VICTORIAN STUDIES

EDITORIAL ASSISTANTSHIPS

for 2015-2016


Victorian Studies invites applications for the positions of assistant Managing Editor and assistant Book Review Editor to begin 1 August 2015. Applicants will automatically be considered for both positions unless they note otherwise.


JOB DESCRIPTIONS:
The assistant Managing Editor works with the Managing Editor, corresponds with scholars in the field of Victorian Studies via post and e-mail, makes minor updates to the VS website, and edits manuscripts. He or she also has primary responsibility for overseeing the process of manuscript evaluation, including correspondence with outside referees regarding submitted essays.
 
The assistant Book Review Editor works with the Book Review Editor to commission and edit book reviews and review essays for publication in the journal. Both positions require intensive record-keeping, as well as strict attention to details.
 
After one year, the assistant Managing Editor ordinarily succeeds to the position of Managing Editor and the assistant Book Review Editor to the position of Book Review Editor. Applicants should therefore expect to be in residence from 2015-2017.
 
Graduate students gain one extra year of financial support overall by taking a position at VS. Here’s how that works: VS editors are given two years of employment, and departments typically allow students, before forfeiting any time off their contracts, to put their teaching contracts on hold for one year to take another form of graduate student employment. In the English department, for example, graduate students who take the editorial assistantship forfeit one year of their teaching contracts but gain two years of support through the assistantship, which means that they come out with one extra year of support overall.
 
QUALIFICATIONS: 
The assistant Managing Editor and Book Review Editor must be enrolled, through a department, in the Graduate School of Indiana University. A familiarity with the Victorian period and teaching or editing experience are strongly preferred.
 (Most of our successful applicants, historically, have been those whose scholarly work and interests focused on some aspect of nineteenth-century British culture.) Prior administrative experience is also helpful. Successful candidates have, in the past, completed coursework toward the PhD and have taken, or are about to take, qualifying exams. Both assistantships are half-time positions, with contracts beginning around 1 August.

APPLICATIONS:
Application forms are available from the Victorian Studies office in Ballantine Hall 338 (open M-R 10:00-2:00), or you may write to us to request an electronic copy (
victstu@indiana.edu). Applications should be returned with a full graduate academic transcript, a brief CV, a writing sample (reflecting current research), and a letter of recommendation written by a professor other than one of next year’s VS editors (Ivan Kreilkamp and Lara Kriegel) and sent directly toikreilka@indiana.edu. Candidates should accompany their applications with a 1-2 page letter outlining their academic experience and indicating the relevance of Victorian Studies and the assistantship to their graduate work and future plans. Those who have previously applied for an editorial position at VS may reapply simply by indicating that they wish to reactivate their files, and by adding additional supporting materials. Completed applications must be received in the VS office by Thursday, February 26, 2015; they may be returned via post or dropped off in the VS office during regular working hours. Candidates should note that a personal interview has been an important factor in the selection process.
 
If you are planning to apply, please consider sending us an email atvictstu@indiana.edu to let us know. It’s helpful for us to have a sense of how many applications we may receive prior to the due date.
 
INFORMATIONAL MEETING:
If you have any questions or would like more information on the assistantships–even if you’re interested in applying in a future year–we will be holding an informational meeting/Q&A session onThursday, February 12, at 12 p.m. in our office, Ballantine 338. Feel free to stop by! If you have any other questions, you can email us atvictstu@indiana.edu.
