Microbiology Undergraduate Assistants

Every semester, the UGA Microbiology department recruits undergraduate students to assist faculty members in encouraging student participation and active learning approaches in classrooms, which has shown great benefits to the UGA teaching and learning community. The department of microbiology has three opportunities for undergraduates to gain experience as a lecture or lab assistant:

1) Microbiology Undergraduate Lab Assistant (MULA): paid $9.50-$15.00/hour (based on funding available and number of MULAs) for assisting in our teaching laboratories - under the direction of a graduate teaching assistant. 
2) Microbiology Peer Assistant (MPA): volunteers that help facilitate 3-5 group work days per semester for microbiology lecture courses (MIBO2500 and/or MIBO3500)- under the direction of the instructor. 
3) Peer Learning Assistant (PLA): paid $11/hour by the Division of Academic Enhancement to assist in a large lecture section of MIBO3500, involving 5 hours of work a week.
