💼 DESIGNATION / JOB POSITION
- Teaching Fellow Positions in Physics
🎓 QUALIFICATION & EXPERIENCE / REQUIREMENT
The physics courses are of two types – theory and lab – and form part of the curriculum leading to a major in physics. The theory courses are canonical undergraduate physics courses: mathematical and computational physics, waves & optics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, statistical physics, properties of matter. The labs are somewhat different from standard undergraduate labs in Indian universities, but at the same level. The number of students in a typical lab or class is less than twenty-five, while a foundation course class has a maximum of 100 students.
A theory course has two 90-minute classes and one 90-minute discussion session per week, besides office hours. A lab has one three-hour session and another three hours of extra work time per week. Each course has one faculty instructor, aided by two TFs in a lab, and by one TF Teaching Fellow in a theory course. Each TF Teaching Fellow is attached to one lab and one theory course, or to two theory courses.
The duties of a TF Teaching Fellow in a lab course include making hand-outs, preparing experiments, supervising students, and grading lab reports. The duties in a theory course include attending classes, grading homework assignments and tests, and leading weekly discussion sessions (intended to improve problem-solving skills). In addition, a TF Teaching Fellow is expected to hold office hours so that students with difficulties may consult them. The total number of working hours in a week is about fifteen, usually spread over four days.
Foundation courses at Ashoka University form an essential part of its broad-based liberal arts programme. They are taken by students of all backgrounds and majoring in all disciplines. There are two 90-minute lectures per week given by a professor. The class is divided into six groups of 15-20 students, three led by one of the two TFs assigned to the class. Each group has one 60- minute discussion session (DS) per week
The appointment will be for one semester (Monsoon 2021) initially but subject to satisfactory performance could be extended for the following semester also
🏆 SALARY / REMUNERATION / PAY SCALE
