Teaching fellows (TFs) teach part-time under the supervision of course heads (who hold formal teaching appointments) as an integral part of their training for the PhD or, in exceptional cases, for a master’s degree.   

Review Harvard Griffin GSAS’s teaching fellowship policies and your program’s departmental requirements to determine your teaching expectations. The FAS Office of Undergraduate Education maintains information about instructional support, which includes a link to TF pay rates. 

Teaching appointments are made by FAS academic departments or by other Harvard Schools. Students in the humanities and social sciences may also access the Central Application for Teaching Sections, a tool that lists TF opportunities. For additional teaching opportunities, including reading senior theses, reach out to FAS departments directly.  

Teaching fellow positions are covered by the HGSU-UAW Collective Bargaining Agreement with Harvard University. TFs also receive complimentary membership at the Harvard Faculty Club, located at 20 Quincy Street.
