Specialist Instructor Positions

These positions are paid employment opportunities through CUPE Local 4163 and, as such, your commitments as a Specialist Instructor (SI) will run through the dates as stated in the position postings. You are expected to fulfill all of your duties and responsibilities as a Specialist Instructor within those dates, so do not make any travel plans without first verifying your work schedule with the course instructor. If you feel that you cannot meet your commitments during this period due to an extended planned absence from the campus, then please do not apply for a position.

For those of you who have been offered to teach labs through your letter of offer, it is very important that you let John know if you will not be taking an SI position so that he can offer your labs to other grad students.
