TAing is a great way to dig a little bit deeper into the material for a course, get practice working in a group of peers, interact more closely with a professor, learn something about how courses are run, make some money, and have fun doing it! If you've taken a CS class, we want you to apply! To see courses hiring TAs, please check out the courses hiring page.
Brown University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, and protected persons. (Click here for more information.)
The TA hiring process is coordinated by the Meta TAs.
The CS UTAs, STAs, HTAs, HSTAs, MTAs, and several other categories of student workers in the CS department are members of a collective bargaining unit represented by the Teaching Assistant Labor Organization (TALO). The employment of these student workers is subject to the 2023 Interim Agreement Between Brown and TALO [Full Text, Plain Language Summary].
All undergraduate and Masters students are eligible to apply. (PhD students are not eligible for HTA / UTA / STA positions, but PhD students in the Computer Science department may be hired as Graduate TAs. Graduate TAs are hired separately from this process—speak to your advisor if you're a Computer Science PhD student who wishes to become a Graduate TA.)
