-Types of Graduate Assistant-
Administrative Assistant: Most common, performs tasks important to daily office functions
Research Assistant: Primary responsibilities are to work directly with faculty doing research-based tasks
Teaching Assistant: Students assigned instructional duties in a course under the supervision of experienced faculty members.
Lab Assistant: Students assigned to aid with lab setup, proctoring, answering questions, helping with Labs
Instructor of Record: This position is different from a TA in that they are fully responsible for their own courses (Teaching, Lesson Planning, Grading, etc.)
Lab assistant and Instructor of Record are automatic allocations through Instructional Support
Funding Applicants have the option of partnering with another faculty/staff member/office to apply for a GA to split their time between the two sites. If two Departments wish to apply together, please add names of both Departments AND both Requesters in the above fields. We encourage you to make it clear in your application how the different offices are connected/how GAs part-time duties will serve both.
For example, a joint application for Summer funding might look like a request for a GA to act as the liaison between the Center for South GA Regional Impact and University Advancement. The rationale being that the GA would be working on projects that included/affected both departments.
