Applications are invited for the BAAS Graduate Assistantship in American History at the University of New Hampshire, starting in August 2017 for two years. Candidates will normally be final-year undergraduates in American Studies and related fields and disciplines at a British university, but applications will also be accepted from recent graduates.
Teaching Assistants receive a stipend, paid September-May. The stipend for M.A. students is approximately $14,800.
Teaching Assistants do not pay tuition. They are responsible, however, for paying for two items: 1) Student fees (for Health Services, the Student Union, etc.), which are approximately $850 for full-time students; 2) Health insurance, which International students are normally required to purchase and which costs approximately $1000.
