Teaching Fellows for Life Sciences 1a
Professors Robert A. Lue, Daniel E. Kahne, Richard M. Losick, and Susan E. Mango
Life Sciences 1a is a fall-semester survey course that integrates general chemistry, organic chemistry, and molecular biology at the introductory level. The course is large (typically about 450 students), with the majority of students being freshmen. The focus is on developing an intuitive understanding of the fundamental features of living systems, with topics including intermolecular interactions, thermodynamics, acidity, (first-order) kinetics, the central dogma, protein trafficking, cell signaling, enzyme catalysis, and drug design. These concepts are then applied to the treatment of HIV infection and acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
Teaching Fellows lead a three-hour combined discussion/laboratory section each week, are expected to attend all lectures (Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1-2:30 pm) and weekly one-hour staff meetings. Additional responsibilities include holding a weekly office hour, grading weekly lab and problem set assignments, and proctoring exams. Teaching Fellows are compensated $10,260 (post-docs and G3 or more senior) or $9,080 (G2 or below) for the semester.
Please email the course account email@example.com and include your CV and a filled out TF (for Harvard graduates students or TA application (for people who are not Harvard graduate student). Both applications are available on this website, and we can also forward you copies. We will be conducting interviews and hiring primarily in May (you can also bring your application materials to the interview).
