Computer Science is one of the fastest growing industries and employers are always interested in hiring our students. Throughout the year we may receive many job postings in addition to the opportunities offered within the Department.
Teaching assistantships are assigned at the beginning of each term. To apply for a Teaching Assistant position, submit a job application on-line via the Department of Computer Science Moodle link (https://moodle.cs.usask.ca/), “Computer Science Student Job Application”.
Any graduate student is eligible for a teaching assistantship although maximum income limits (as well as limits on time spent per week) may be imposed as a condition of other awards. It must be noted that a teaching assistantship is a job. Every student who is employed as a teaching assistant must meet the requirements of the job to which he or she is assigned and is expected to carry out the duties accordingly. Failure to do so may result in the termination of a student's employment as a teaching assistant, and may jeopardize the student's future employment with the Department.
A limited number of sessional lectureships are available, either during the regular academic session or throughout the summer. Interested students should contact the Computer Science main office for more details and watch for postings.
Students are eligible to apply if they fulfill the following requirements:
- Completed at least the first year of a Computer Science program by the time their research position begins.
- Full-time student status (note that students in their final year of study are eligible).
- Must have an average of at least 75%, but due to competition we recommend at least an average of 80%.
Note that the USRAs provided by NSERC, but not those of the Department, have the additional requirement that applicants be Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
The application deadline is typically in early January. Please contact the Computer Science main office for more information regarding student application procedures and important deadlines.
Students gain valuable real-world work experience in their field, while also developing their industry network and receiving a full-time salary.
For details regarding student eligibility and deadlines, visit the Computer Science Professional Internship Program website.
Not sure what to charge per hour? A guideline to student compensation information can be found on the University of Saskatchewan website.
