Readers
The Economics Department has a few reader opportunities across the academic quarters. Readers are hourly positions whose function is to grade homework, quizzes and/or exams. We regularly hire undergraduate students as readers to support Econ 197: Economic Rhetoric, Econ 104: Is There Truth in Numbers: The Role of Statistics in Economics and Econ 161A: Marketing; and a graduate or advanced undergraduate reader to support Econ 186: Math Methods for Economics Analysis and a graduate student to support Econ 210B Math Methods for Economics Analysis (for incoming Ph.D. students). General qualifications for reader positions include a sound understanding of the subject matter often demonstrated by "A" grade level work in the course, good academic standing; a commitment to  punctual and reliable behavior; the ability to meet deadlines and maintain confidentiality.  For information about upcoming reader positions, please contact Department Assistant Leigh Faulk.



Teaching Assistants
Teaching assistant (TA) positions are available each academic quarter for graduate students in good academic standing to support economics curriculum. TA positions are excellent employment opportunities for graduate students interested in a teaching career and mastering the subject of the course. TA duties vary based on the needs of the course and faculty supervisor, but generally include leading sections, grading homework, quizzes and exams, holding office hours and proctoring exams.  We normally do not have additional TA positions for non-economics students. Please contact Graduate Program Coordinator Sandra Reebie for more information.
