2021 Research Demonstratorships



The School offers a very wide range of courses at all levels and across the mathematical sciences. There is a large amount of associated tutoring work, and we rely on our graduate students to act as tutors or demonstrators (in computer laboratories, for instance).

For graduate students this work may provide supplementary income, as well as invaluable experience - for their future careers - of teaching and dealing with students. Indeed, it is one of the requirements of PhD students in the School that they do a certain minumum amount of tutoring or teaching, as the skills acquired will be useful in whatever career they later take up.
