Hi everyone, following up on our TF crisis from yesterday’s discussion… Below is an updated list of TF and TA candidates. FYI, the target number of TFs (and TAs) for spring is 31!
Only 18 PhD students so far, candidates for TF. Again, please email me ASAP if you have other PhD students to add to the TF list, before we start considering MS/MA students for TA (or possibly PhD/MA students from other departments, e.g. Math – more on this below).
So far, we have 8 requests for TA, 5 of which are recommended by faculty (see below). Considering those 5 recommendations, that would bring the number to 23 TF/TAs, so still short 8 TF/TAs. I would really like us to hire TF/TAs who we know are good, so please let me know if you can recommend strong MS students to serve as TA.
NOTE: it is also possible to hire PhD (or MS/MA) students from other departments (e.g., Math), given CAS approval. Let me know if you know of any who are strong and willing, and we can try. THANKS.
