Spring 2010 Appointment Information

 

Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) - Duties are assigned to students with the necessary qualifications by the hiring department and are included in the written notification of appointment provided to the student by the hiring department. Subject to assignment by the department, typical duties might include, but are not limited to, conducting discussion or laboratory sections, attendance at lectures, holding office hours, evaluating and commenting on student assignments, participating in training or orientation sessions, performing a limited number of administrative duties directly related to the course, and preparation. GSIs always work under the supervision of a regular member of the faculty (defined as Academic Senate faculty and lecturers), and they do not assign final course grades for students. See UCOP for current pay rates.

Reader - Duties are assigned by the hiring department and are included in the written notification of appointment provided to the student by the department. Appointees to the Reader title are employed to render diverse services as course assistants, which will normally include the grading of student papers and examinations. Subject to assignment by the department, duties might also include attendance at lectures, office hours, consultation with the instructor, and other course-related duties. Readers may not perform teaching duties.

Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) - GSRs perform research broadly related to their degree programs in an academic department or research unit under the direction of a faculty member or authorized Principal Investigator. GSRs may or may not collaborate in the publication of research as determined by the faculty member directing the work. GSRs may not be assigned teaching, administrative, or general assistance duties. This is not intended to exclude research-related duties such as quantitative analysis, bibliographic searches or summaries, text editing, lab projects, computer programming, and a reasonable amount of lab maintenance and cleaning. GSRs are hired initially at Step II, move to Step III after passing the Prelims and move to Step IV after passing the Qualifying Exam. See UCOP for current pay rates.
