Graduate Employee Positions (GEs)
A number of Graduate Employment options are available to department graduate students (known as Graduate Research Fellowships, Graduate Teaching Fellowships, Teaching Assistantships or TAs at many other universities).
GEs assist faculty in the teaching of various undergraduate-level courses and receive tuition waivers and salaries governed by the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University of Oregon and the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation.
GEs frequently teach discussion sections of large enrollment courses or are hired to assist in grading for high-enrollment courses. GEs assist faculty in course preparation, communications and grading, and may contribute lectures or other presentations to courses taught by faculty. Graduate Research Fellows conduct research or perform administrative duties.
Students in the department can also apply for positions in other UO units.
