Additional information

This is an intermittent employment where you as a teaching assistant are paid for the hours you work. The remuneration level is according to our regulations and will be paid per hour in arrears. The number of working hours is individually set in a dialogue with the responsible teacher and director of studies. Since the Department of Computer Science and Engineering is a joint department the employment can be placed at the University of Gothenburg or the Chalmers University of Technology. We only accept applications in the manner described in the advertisement.  We are aware that the course schedule for autumn is not yet published at the time of this advertisement and that it may therefore be difficult to determine if you can work as a teaching assistant in a specific course without causing your own studies to suffer due to conflicting schedules. Please note, we will see your application as a notification of interest, and you will always be able to decline a potential job offer.

Please note, if we offer you a shorter intermittent employment and you will be asked to work in any courses at CSE, you will typically work in 1-2 courses per period.
