Graduate Student Instructor (GSI)

Graduate Student Instructor (GSI)

We begin recruiting Summer and Fall Physics GSIs in March of the same year. We begin recruiting Spring Physics GSIs in October of the preceding year.

We are currently accepting Summer 2017 Physics GSI applications. Copy and paste: https://docs.google.com/a/berkeley.edu/forms/d/1qU-c-i_p-_DCdRhckmFsM7zt1-M5O_8WYA3ub6p4PJ8/prefill

ONLY REGISTERED SPRING 2017 BERKELEY GRADUATE STUDENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

You must be logged into your @berkeley.edu account to submit a Physics GSI Application. Only one Physics GSI application per XXXX@berkeley.edu can be submitted. You do not have to complete your application in one sitting; however, you must submit your application to save any information you entered. You may return to your submitted application for further editing.

Outside graduate students applying be a physics GSI for the first time must submit a copy of their undergraduate transcript. International students must provide proof that they have met the University's spoken English proficiency requirement.

We offer far fewer discussion/lab (D/L) sections in the summer than we do in the fall or spring. We typically offer the following numbers of D/L sections in the summer: 4-D/L sections in 7A and 7B, 3-D/L's in 7C, 9-D/L's in 8A, 8-D/L's in 8B, and 1 section each in 77, 89, and 137A. Outside graduate students will only be considered for Physics 7A/7B and 8A/8B.

GSI hiring order is as follows: 1) physics graduate students, physics grad students, 2) continuing or returning Physics GSIs from outside departments with high GSI evaluation scores, and 3) remaining qualified applicants. We will recruit GSIs as long as there is a need.

Physics graduate students must submit their summer GSI application by MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2017. To outside graduate students, we will accept Summer GSI applications as long as there is a need.
