Doctoral STEM Teaching Assistantship NDSU/UND ONLY Announcement

The National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded New Discoveries at the Advanced interface of Computation, Engineering, and Science (ND-ACES) cooperative agreement consists of two broad components: 1) Center for Cellular Biointerfaces in Science and Engineering (CCBSE), which consists of three research pillars: materials design, cellular systems, and computational approaches and 2) PROmoting Sustainable Partnerships in Education and Research (PROSPER), which consists of four connected project elements: education and workforce development, broadening participation, partnerships and collaborations, and communication and dissemination. Under ND-ACES, the Doctoral STEM Teaching Assistantship program is designed to: 1) increase NDSU/UND doctoral students’ understanding of and experience in undergraduate STEM teaching and 2) provide course release time to the Tribal College/University (TCU), Primarily Undergraduate Institution (PUI), and Master’s College/University (MCU) faculty/instructors/CCBSE researchers so that they are able to spend additional time conducting their research. The Doctoral STEM Teaching Assistantship Program is a semester-long teaching placement (during Spring 2022 or Fall 2022) that will take place at a CCBSE-participating TCU, PUI, or MCU. Under the direction of the faculty/instructor/CCBSE researcher on those campuses, the doctoral students will teach one course determined collaboratively between the doctoral student, the TCU/PUI/MCU faculty/instructor, and the institution. For more information, see the Request for Applications.
