List jobs you are applying for in order of preference by code:

(i.e. D1 or A2*+A3*, then F1, B1, B3  etc.) 



What is your academic program? (i.e. 2nd year physics major):

List all physics courses completed with a grade of B- or above:

  Which physics courses are you registered in this term?

  List previous teaching experience including Physics TA jobs.

  List any other special training or certificates relevant to your application, such as First aid, Physics TA talk (by Dr Collette), Varma Scholar or WHMIS.


Are you doing the Physics TA Certificate Program? (see the Student information page for details.)


The minimum requirements to work as a Physics TA are: 

  • MTA good academic standing
  • Registration in at least one MTA course this term
  • CUM GPA of 2.7 or higher with a grade of at least B- in any course you TA
  • Canadian SIN number (prior to starting work)

Do you meet all 4 of these requirements? (If no, email cpettipas to ask about exceptions.)



Hours for a Physics TA typically vary from 32 to 40 per term. If 23 hours per term or less are expected a * indicates reduced work load. Combining * jobs is possible.

Most jobs are a combination of lab time and marking unless indicated. Marked labs are returned with a week but assignments must be in sooner.
Marking and Help Center jobs are more independent so higher a GPA and experience is normally required. 


Job offers are schedule specific so email cpettipas if you discover a conflict after you have applied.


It is highly recommended that you register for all required classes on Connect before applying.
