Teaching Assistant (TA) Positions
Teaching Assistant positions in Epidemiology are NOT open to first year students in most cases. Most TA positions are for only one quarter at a time, and many are only 10 housrs/week. Sometimes students have found a TA position, for which they are qualified, in another department at the UW; such as biology or chemistry.

  • To be eligible to TA our one undergraduate class, TA’s must have completed UW courses EPI 512-513+, and be 2nd year students.
  • Usually TA’s must have performed well in the graduate class they wish to TA.
  • If you have the skills, you may apply to TA in another department. Contact the applicable student services office for the appropriate program. Find the email from the program's website. You may have to contact several people to reach the correct one. See the Office Directory
