Graduate Teaching Assistants

Aston Business School is delighted to offer a number of new Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) posts for the October 2014-15 academic intake.  Each of the seven Academic Groups in the Business School will have a minimum of 1 GTA post available.  The Academic Groups are: Economics & Strategy, Finance, Accounting, Aston Law, Marketing, Work & Organisational Psychology and Operations & Information Management.  For specific information with regard to these GTAs please see the Academic Group home page.

Graduate Teaching Assistants are funded for three years full-time and are valued at £20,000 per year.  Fees are deducted from this amount.  Students will be expected to pursue the PhD programme on a full-time basis and will be required to assist their Academic Group with its teaching load for an average of 6 hours per week.

To be eligible to apply for the GTAs candidates must first hold an offer of a place on the PhD programme at Aston Business School.  Further information on the application procedure, application forms, and programme structure are available at http://www1.aston.ac.uk/aston-business-school/programmes/research/

All self-funded students (Home/EU and International) who have already been offered a place on the PhD programme at Aston Business School are eligible to apply for the GTAs. 

An application form will need to be completed as part of the process.

The closing date for applying for the GTAs is Tuesday 6th May 2014.
