Doctoral Teaching Assistantships

By May 22, 2018Employment

The United States Sports Academy is offering a limited number of Doctoral Teaching Assistantships to those who are interested in pursuing a Doctor of Education in Sports Management (Ed.D.) degree as a full-time, residential student. The purpose of the doctoral teaching assistantship is to augment and support the student’s doctoral academic program.

The Doctoral Teaching Assistants will play an integral role in the course writing and development of both distance learning and continuing education courses for web-based instruction. Recipients will teach online courses in the Academy’s undergraduate program and undertake other assignments; such as assisting in data collection and analysis for Institutional Effectiveness, doing special projects, serving as Ambassadors for special events.  They may also be eligible for teaching international sports programs (a valid U.S. Passport is required). Teaching assistants will also assist faculty with the development of workshops, seminars, short courses, symposia, and continuing education programs.

The Doctoral Teaching Assistant will receive a competitive annual stipend, a fully paid individual student health insurance policy (pending medical examination, if required), as well as a tuition waiver for two courses each semester.

Applicants for a Doctoral Teaching Assistant position must first be accepted as a student into the doctoral program to begin residential coursework at the beginning of the Fall 2018 Term.

Interested parties should contact: Dr. Tomi Wahlstrom, Vice President of Academic Affairs, for more information. Along with all admissions documents needed for the doctoral program, a resume, letter of interest and three references should be sent to
