Become a Teaching Assistant at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy

Teaching Assistantship and student in lab

The Graduate Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences offers teaching assistantship opportunities to qualified graduate students. Students must be officially registered in a degree program at the University of Toronto. Typical responsibilities of TAs include supervising undergraduate students in laboratories, assembling and posting course materials, conducting tutorial sessions, responding to student inquiries and marking problem sets, terms tests and exams. These positions may  be tentative, pending final course determinations and enrolments.  After your initial appointment(s), you may apply for subsequent appointment(s) in the following year.

The terms and conditions of the employment are defined in the Collective Agreement between the Canadian Union Public Employees (CUPE  Local 3902, Unit 1) and the Governing Council of the University of Toronto.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons / persons of colour, women, Indigenous / Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ persons, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.


Graduate students will continue to receive their funding packages as stated in their funding letters. Current TA contracts may need to be adjusted to reflect the fact that undergraduate courses are no longer in-person, but the overall number of hours allocated in the contracts will not be reduced.
