Appointments and re-appointments
Teaching Assistants shall be offered appointments and re-appointments in the following ways:
New graduate students: The Director of Graduate Studies, upon recommendation of the Graduate Admissions and Recruiting Committee, shall offer teaching assistant positions to students in this category for a one-year term, renewable for the second year subject to satisfactory performance of duties and satisfactory progress toward a degree in physics, as mentioned in Article 3 below.
Preference for advanced students: A student in his/her second or later year of graduate study may request an appointment as a teaching assistant for a specified length of time. It is understood that students who request and accept these offers have obligated themselves to serve as teaching assistants until the end of the semester, regardless of alternate forms of financial support (fellowships, research assistantships) which may become available at a later date. Students who request and are denied a position under the conditions here may avail themselves of the grievance procedures described in Article 7.
