Dr. Pam Hanratty will be teaching BIOL L311 (Genetics) this summer during the First Six Week Session and is looking for some great, enthusiastic potential UTAs.
The class will be offered Monday-Thursday, 8:00-9:50 AM via Zoom. Both the lectures and learning groups are meeting synchronously and live.
Learning groups will meet twice per week on Zoom, at the following times:
- Monday and Wednesday 10:20-11:10 a.m.
- Monday and Wednesday 11:20 a.m.-12:10 p.m.
- Tuesday and Thursday 10:20-11:10 a.m.
- Tuesday and Thursday 1:00-1:50 p.m.
In order to be eligible to serve as a UTA, you must meet the following requirements:
- Class Standing: UTAs should have at least junior class standing by the time the appointment begins. However, exceptional underclassmen may also be considered.
- GPA: Candidates must have an overall GPA of 3.25. That is, only applicants with a GPA of 3.25 or higher will be considered for UTA positions.
- Specific Grades: You must have earned an A- or better in the course for which you are applying to assist. You must also have earned excellent grades in related classes. You will need to submit a copy of your unofficial IU transcript with your application.
- Written Statement: This is a very important part of the application. When candidates for a position are relatively equal in the above areas, the statement can make the difference. Be sure to proofread your statement.
In addition, only students who have not yet graduated can be considered, due to university requirements.
You can find the UTA application online at: https://biology.indiana.edu/undergraduate/research-opportunities/undergrad-teaching-assistants.html
You should also provide an up-to-date unofficial transcript, and also complete the written statement associated with the application.
