Chemistry Labor Program

The chemistry labor program is essential to the education program in our department. We normally hire nine students on 10-hour primary contracts (with a maximum academic year workload of 176 or 192 hours), six students on 15-hour primary contracts (with a maximum academic year workload of 240 hours), and another five for secondary 0-5 hour contracts (with a maximum academic year workload of 88 hours). Each year we select one worker as our student manager who helps coordinate duties and generally organize the other workers. Required duties include doing chemical preparation for the various general, organic, and analytical laboratories. Grading homework, quizzes, and laboratory notebooks for these same classes. Our teaching assistants also are instrumental in our tutoring program that runs on Sunday afternoon from 3-5 and Monday-Thursday evenings from 7-9.

Chemistry Laboratory Checklist

We will be hiring one position for Spring 2021 and multiple for Fall 2022. For the Spring 2021 position, the application is due on November 15th. Here is that application form. We will be hiring secondary positions in the fall at the beginning of the term to fill in laboratory TA positions as fits the scheduling needs of the program.
