Academic Employment


Thank you for your interest. The information is for your information only. Please check back for current postings!


There are three categories of academic employees at the German Department. The first two are represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. They are divided into two bargaining units, as listed below. The third group are those represented by the University of Toronto Faculty Association (UTFA). Each employee belongs to only one category, depending upon their status at the university.

CUPE 3902 Unit 1: This group includes graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and undergraduates at UofT. Job opportunities include course instructorship and TA work.

UTFA: This is the University of Toronto Faculty Association (which is not a union). Employees hired under this rubric include Faculty members, Lecturers (full and part-time), as well as CLTAs (Contractually Limited Term Appointments).

People applying for positions can only do so within the category they belong to, (i.e. to apply for Unit 1 positions one has to presently be a registered student at UofT).

Please note that should rates stipulated in the collective agreement vary from rates stated in this posting, the rates stated in the collective agreement shall prevail.
