The American Studies program anticipates making several Associate Instructorship appointments for the academic year 2012-2013. Students will assist faculty in the instruction of A100, "What is America?" or A150, "Introduction to Native American & Indigenous Studies." Assistance will include grading and the leadership of discussion sections.
The stipend for this appointment is expected to be at least $13,500. Note that this does not include a fee remission. Students must be at the G901 level in order to take this appointment.
Any qualified student may apply, but preference will be given to students enrolled in the AMST combined PhD, the AMST doctoral minor, and the NAIS doctoral minor who have not taught for us before, and who represent a range of departments. Students who AI for American Studies during the regular academic year will receive priority when it comes time to assign summer teaching.
Interested students should submit a brief letter of application, describing teaching history and research interests, a CV, and a prospective syllabus for a focused topics class that could be taught in the summer; students should state in their letter if they are in the AMST combined PhD program or minor, and if they have taught for us before. A letter of recommendation from an IU faculty member should also be sent to the program. Materials are due by April 20, 2012.
