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.

Please feel free to email us for further information at writing-program@uchicago.edu. You may also stop by Stuart 330, the Writing Program main office, which is accessed through the Cathey Center in Harper. Go to the third floor of Harper Memorial Library and enter from Harper Reading Room North. (View a map.)
