Employment Opportunity for Teaching Fellows at Harvard College

Life Sciences 1b: Genetics, Genomics, and Evolution


Course Description:

Life Sciences 1B is an interdisciplinary course designed to teach genetics and genomics in an evolutionary framework. The course is taught at the introductory level and the majority of students are freshmen. We take an integrated approach, showing how evolution and genetics are intimately related and how genomics provides tools to analyze case studies of human disease, normal variation, and evolution. Taught by Professors Andrew Berry, Pardis Sabeti, and Hopi Hoekstra.


Teaching Fellow Duties:

Teaching Fellows (TFs) lead a weekly section, combining laboratory and discussion, and grade all lab assignments and problem sets. TFs must also attend lectures (Tue & Thurs 1:30-2:45 pm), staff meetings (Thurs, time TBD) and lab pre-runs (January 21-24th, 2020). Additional duties include helping with exams, such as proctoring. TFs are compensated $11,040 (post-docs and G3+) or $9,840 (G1 or G2, and some TAs) per section taught for the semester.
