Computer Science Teaching Assistant: Computer Science teaching assistants provide aid to professors in teaching laboratory sessions. Labs are usually held from 1:30 to 4:20 PM every Thursday and/or Friday. Teaching assistants are required to work closely with professors, helping students understand the lab requirements and develop solutions, answering their questions, and checking their finished lab work. Teaching assistants should have completed Computer Science 1, enjoy working with fellow students, and have the computer science expertise and communication skills needed to assist students in solving lab-related problems.  Teaching assistants are expected to obtain course syllabi and to prepare about 1 hour for each 3-hour lab session.  Compensation is given both for preparation and tutorial time at the standard $7.25 an hour.  Supervisor:  Prof. Arnold Feldman, . (2) Fall and Spring 

Computer Science Tutor: Computer Science tutors provide assistance in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science to students seeking help in their computer science courses. Tutors are required to maintain a regular schedule of one or two help sessions each week, and to attend training classes as needed, for a total of 3 or 6 hours a week.  Tutors should have completed Computer Science 1, enjoy working with fellow students and have the computer science expertise and communication skills needed to assist students in solving course-related problems.  Tutors are expected to obtain course syllabi and to prepare about 1 hour for each 2-hour help session.  Compensation is given both for preparation and tutorial time at the standard $7.25 an hour.  Supervisor:  Prof. Jing Hu, (3) Fall and Spring

Computer Science Lab Manager:  The Math and Computer Science Department is in need of a student to work closely with the professors and the systems administrator of Computer Science in the management of the Computer Science Labs (Stager 005 and 006) and the Mathematics and Computer Science Classroom (Stager 001/002).  The lab manager will maintain the backup of the Lab Computers, install or upgrade the Macintosh and Linux software, assist in building new computers and rewiring/reorganizing labs and classrooms. The lab manager will be responsible for the installation and upgrading of operating system software: diagnosis, repair, and upgrading of computer hardware, installation and upgrading of software on the computers: and maintaining and ordering consumable supplies. Preferably the student should have taken a computer science course beyond CPS170.  Preferably the student should be a responsible junior or senior. Some experience with computer hardware and Linux software is of value; however, experience is not as important as the desire to work hard and learn new skills. Ten hours per week; hours can be flexible around the student’s schedule.  Pay is standard at $7.25 an hour.  Supervisor:  Prof. Arnold Feldman, . (1) Fall, Spring, Winter and Summer
