Job Opportunities

The School of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is hiring for several undergraduate learning assistants (LA) to help with MIME 101. In addition to grading student assignments, you will be teamed with another LA to co-lead ~three MIME 101 recitation sections. Each of these sections will include 20-24 MIME freshmen/transfer students and will meet once a week for two hours. Thus, you will have a total of six hours of teaching time per week but will present the same material in all sections (weekly training provided). In your capacity as an MIME 101 LA, you may be working with multiple MIME 101 instructors and Graduate Assistants. This position requires a one-term commitment. Punctuality is crucial. https://jobs.oregonstate.edu/postings/64465
