Applications are invited for teaching assistant (TA) positions in the School of Advanced Technology at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). The TA positions are open for all qualified interested graduate students (Masters and PhD students) on campus of XJTLU or other graduates in Suzhou. All applications will be considered by the recruiting panel which consists of two or more academic staffs in the School.

TA duties include:

XJTLU postgraduate research (PGR) students

  • Laboratory demonstration and support for practical work in the classroom
  • Attendance on and support with field courses
  • One-to-one or group tutoring
  • Invigilation of formal examinations and/or class tests
  • Delivery of occasional formal lectures within their area of expertise after having received appropriate training and initial supervision from their supervisor or the respective Module Leader. Such training might be provided by individual departments, the relevant cluster or the Education Development Unit (EDU). Relevant health and safety issues should be covered in this training
  • Marking of formative assignments with appropriate training
  • Marking of summative assessments with appropriate training. PGR students must never act as the sole examiner on any summative assessment; any work that has been marked by a PGR student MUST be included in the sample provided for internal and external moderation.

XJTLU masters students, and graduate students (postgraduate research and masters) from other universities

  • Tutoring or lab demonstration
  • Scheduled office hours for one-to-one tutoring
  • Assistance in marking of formative assignments, reports, quizzes, etc. with appropriate training and guidance. For marking of any assessment that contributes to the final module mark, the Teaching Assistant may only perform mechanical marking tasks as supervised by the Module Examiner, not marking tasks that involve academic judgment.
