  1. With many universities moving to online class format, are there people out there who are funded with a TAship that find themselves affected by this? Are you still TAing, but now virtually? For people who currently have no classes, did the department reduce your stipend? For incoming 2020 students, have any universities contacted you to change the terms of your offer (rescind a TA offer)?
  2. Hi all! Do you suggesting trying out TAing even if it is not required? As of right now, I don't want to be a teacher in the future, but I am still curious about it. What do you all suggest?
  3. I was not accepted into any of the PhD programs that I applied to this past cycle and have now graduated from my undergrad. I began a new line of research, including developing a novel laboratory measure, over the past year and am working on trying to continue to pursue developing this model and measure (we had some very promising results!). My faculty mentor and I are planning to continue work on this over the next couple of years as I prepare to apply to programs again. This is at a liberal arts school, however, and there isn't any existing funding in the labs or department. My research over the last year was funded by an institutional grant that is only available to currently enrolled students and the line of research represents a substantial departure from any existing research programs at the school and my mentor's experience (I essentially created an entirely new research lab/program for my project). In order to do this, we need to find funding. Does anyone know of any grant opportunities for someone in my position (recent graduate, neither enrolled nor matriculating, trying to gain more experience and continue my research while re-applying to PhD programs)??? Pretty much everything that we are finding requires that one be currently enrolled in a program somewhere or at the post-doc level. I will also be continuing to TA for undergrad psychology classes this summer and through the next couple of years, but there aren't any funding opportunities for this within the department or institution. This is great experience and something that I really enjoy doing so I plan to do it even if unfunded, it would be great if I could find some way to fund myself doing this as I'm not really able to work at the same time and need to find some way to contribute to my household finances (especially since I'll have to begin repaying my student loans soon too). Does anyone have any knowledge of any funding opportunities for this? I'd appreciate any help/advice anyone can offer on where to look; funding opportunities for recent graduates that are neither currently enrolled as students, nor matriculating into a program seem to almost non-existent.
  4. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how typical it is for MA students in classical archaeology/history to receive TA positions. I'm taking a post-bac course in classical languages in the fall and hope to be at Michigan, Cincinnati, Bryn Mawr, or WashU for the fall of 2013. Does anyone have any recommendations or advice about TA-ing or even fellowships? I want to teach when it's all said and done but don't really know how to start.
