2. Bioinformatics Teaching Assistant

Posted: 5 June 2008

The Life Science Modules of the National University of Singapore includes several bioinformatics modules such as LSM2104 Essential Bioinformatics and Biocomputing (year 2 undergraduate) and LSM3241 Bioinformatics and Biocomputing (year 3 undergraduate).

Each year, nearly 500 students take these modules. To manage this scale of operations, we hire Teaching Assistants who are well versed in bioinformatics, molecular biology and computational biology to participate in the teaching.

TAs are heavily involved in teaching undergraduate students in terms of managing the lectures, handling tutorials, running practicals, scheduling tests and exams, supervising mini-projects.

If you are a self-motivated bioinformatics person with a love for teaching others how to do bioinformatics, and with a passion for bioinformatics research and education, please send your CV to immediately. We will arrange for an online interview by skype and a visit to our labs. You will be expected to participate in team teaching as part of our group. You are also expected as a TA to seriously consider taking up a higher degree e.g. PhD in Bioinformatics.

Examples of how challenging and fun it is to teach our NUS students may be seen at our websites:
