Application for student assistants (SHK/WHB)
Application for student assistants for the upcoming winter term
For winter term 2023/2024 the Institute of Mathematics needs several student assistants as tutors or correctors for lectures of mathematics and math-related service lectures. Additionally we are seeking student assistants for our students' study center "Lernzentrum". The application is now open. Please follow the link "Application Form"
Please read about the new contracts below.
Important additional information about your application:
1. Applications, which are handed in until 04.06.2023 23:59 pm are being prioritized. Please make sure to apply until this date, as the first students will be picked immediately. Applications after 04.06.2023 will have the chance to get employed, if there are still empty positions available.
2. This application is *not* for lectures of mathematical didactics. To apply for a position in mathematical didactics be sure to find their own application process.
3. The "Lernzentrum" is open to students of mathematics and technomathematics for around 30-40 hours per week. For this purpose, student assistants from the major lectures will be there to help their fellow students.
As a student assistant it is possible to support "Lernzentrum", if you are a tutor and/or corrector for one of the basic courses of mathematics. In this case, we ask you to help students with knowledge of "your" lecture, while studying for their homework and exam. Sometimes, students will have random questions about other courses. If you are not sure how to answer, please feel free to help with a matching contact person.
If you decide to apply for additional hours at "Lernzetrum", 8 hours (WHB) or 9 hours (SHK) will be added to your contract and it will be extended to 6 months.
During the semester you should supervise the "Lernzentrum" for about 2-3,5 hours weekly. We are trying to make sure, that your presence will not correlate with the courses you are attending. Additionally we will need you to work 10-20 hours during the semester break. The coordination of working hours will be done by the head of "Lernzentrum" Charlene Weiß.
Working hours after winter term 18/19 change in tariff of SHK/WHB:
Due to a raise of wages for SHK/WHB, WHB can work a maximum of 8 hours and SHK a maximum of 9 hours per week, without crossing the 520€-limit. For that reason will usually employ for 7 or 8 hours per week. To compensate for that, the length of the contracts will be 5 months instead of 4.
As the term only has 15 weeks and there is a minimum of work to do during the break, the working hours will be more than average during the semester. This will be compensated with fewer working hours during the break.
Model SHK/WHB : 5 months with 7-8 hours per week, potentially more if "Lernzentrum" or organizational work is agreed on.
Of course, 19 hours/week contracts are still possible.
