Writing Program Jobs for 2018-19

Our Spring application round is now open! The next application deadline for teaching for us in the 2018-19 academic year will be Monday, May 7, 2018 at 1:00pm.

You can learn more details about the jobs we have available in the left-hand menu, as well as how to apply for them. We be holding information sessions on Tuesday, April 7 from 12-1pm and Monday, April 30 from 11am-noon, both in Stuart 330. RSVP here.

Because our courses are geared to writers in many different disciplines and professions, we seek to employ University of Chicago graduate students from as many fields as possible: humanities, social sciences, and the sciences. We make our hiring decisions without regard to religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, academic department, or any other factors irrelevant to your ability to teach writing.

Please note: We hire graduate students who are covered by the terms of GAI (the Graduate Aid Initiative) and those who are not covered by GAI. If you are covered by the terms of GAI, please check with your department to see if it has any employment policies specific to GAI students. Some departments have asked their students in GAI funding to follow departmental procedures for using GAI points and for accepting jobs outside their departments. Please check with your department to see if it has developed such a policy.
