Climb the totem pole (requires knowing where you are)
Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – August 9, 2018
Each department works as a fiefdom. If you are desperate, may be you can find some lucky connections to fund your program while TAing in a department that guarantees your funding a week before class starts. For those that like to live on the edge. Play politics right, and you can end up in a nice position. Fall behind or lose favor with your department lab coordinator, GOOD LUCK!
Sometimes the Dean would give a lump sum 2% bonus if school state metrics are up
No healthcare AT ALL, only public Florida school in this situation.
