Teaching Assistant Positions 2016

15 Sep 2015 - 15:00

Teaching   Assistants (TAs)



Faculty of Law



The UCT Law Faculty hopes to appoint a number of LLB graduates to act as teaching assistants during 2016.


As a teaching assistant you will be expected to tutor LLB students, carry out a certain amount of marking and assist the students in your classes. In the Commercial Law Department you will also be involved in the courses that the department offers to non-law students.  In addition you will be expected to fulfil a number of administrative responsibilities, including the invigilation of exams and tests (outside ordinary work hours). Although this is a full-time position, you will be given substantial time in which to pursue your own research interests. We strongly encourage TAs to register for graduate research degrees; candidates who plan to do so will be given preference in the selection process. TAs qualify for the staff fee rebate.


Each TA is allocated to one of the three Departments in the Law Faculty: Private Law, Public Law and Commercial Law. Please clearly indicate your preference as between these departments in your application.


These are twelve-month contract posts, running from 1 February 2016 to 31 January 2017. However, provided your performance is satisfactory it may be possible to extend your contract for a further twelve months. Remuneration is in the region of R10 000 per month.


Please email your CV, a transcript reflecting your university results, and a copy of your best piece of written work or a part of it (no longer than 8 000 words) to: Liesel Collins, Administrative Assistant to the Dean, Faculty of Law by 30 September 2015.


The applications will be considered by a selection committee comprising of the Heads of Departments in the Faculty. Successful candidates will be contacted by 23 October 2015.
