It is highly recommended you apply for TA and Reader positions with other departments. You can look for position listings in Handshake and also can check individual departments' websites for more information on how to apply for TA and Reader positions with other departments. Our students have been hired in other departments -- math, physics, statistics, chemistry and design -- as well as various departments in the humanities and social sciences depending on that student's background.

Non-CEE Students: You are welcome to fill out the CEE TA/Reader Application, but please understand that we do prioritize the hiring of all CEE students, and therefore rarely hire outside of our department. 

* Please note: For CEE Google forms, you must be logged in through your Kerberos login, and not through a personal google or Gmail account.  If you receive an error message stating you don’t have access, please log out of all other accounts and try again.
