Teaching Assistant Employment

Job postings for UTM Anthropology Teaching Assistant positions are listed under the Jobs section of our website on the Teaching Assistant - Unit 1 page.

UTM Affiliation and Amenities

Graduate students who have UTM professors as supervisors are not automatically affiliated with UTM.

Please download the Perks of Graduate Student Affiliation document (PDF file) and visit the Office of the Vice-Dean, Graduate, UTM website for more information on UTM affiliation and amenities.

UTM Anthropology Graduate Carrels

UTM Anthropology has a limited number of carrel desks available for UTM-affiliated Anthropology graduate students to use. The desks are located on the 4th floor of the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex. Graduate desk assignment is not automatic, so please contact the Departmental Assistant at if you would like more information about the process. Please note that desks are typically shared due to the limited number available, so you should not expect to have an unshared desk.

Please remember that all Teaching Assistant work and meetings with students must take place in assigned TA office spaces and not in the carrel area. 

UTM Graduate Lounge

UTM-affiliated graduate students can use the UTM Association of Graduate Students (UTMAGS) Lounge, located in Room DV 2068B. Visit the UTMAGS Graduate Lounge web page for more information.
