Teaching assistant opportunities

Our department provides opportunities for undergraduate students to serve as undergraduate teaching assistants (UTAs) on an ad hoc basis. This is a great way to gain experience for your resume. To learn more, contact our Director of Undergraduate Studies, Ann Bunger.

Groups & Labs

Research doesn’t take place in a vacuum—it coalesces around reading groups and labs. Reading groups are fluid research clusters of students and faculty from our own and other departments. Participants get together to look at original research, ask questions, share current thinking, and work through problems.
