Immunology tutoring and demonstrating positions at Monash University

The Department of Immunology is looking for sessional staff to tutor and demonstrate into our teaching program.  We primarily teach three units:

IMM2011:  A level two unit which introduces students to the basics of the immune system.  We cover the innate and adaptive immune system, MHC processing and presentation, tolerance and mucosal immunity.  Students complete both tutorial and practical classes so we require people to either tutor or demonstrate groups of ~20 students.  Tutorial and practical sessions are repeated (you will run the same class twice with different students over two weeks).

IMM3031:  A level three unit which covers both innate and adaptive immune systems in depth.  An extensive knowledge of immunology is required.  There are eight tutorial classes over the semester.

IMM3051:  A level three unit which covers antibody:antigen interactions in a practical class setting.  This unit is completely practical based.

We will also require people for one-off teaching sessions for BMS1021 (ideal for those new to demonstrating) and MED1011.  Dates and times are indicated in the attached spreadsheet.

If you are interested in teaching into any of these units please see the attached spreadsheet which outlines the days and times that classes run.  For many of the times listed we are looking for multiple tutors or demonstrators.  All classes are at Clayton campus.  We require people to be available for all classes during semester (semester runs from 29 February to 27 May, mid-semester break is from 25 March to 1 April - however see the comments in the attached spreadsheet as not all units have classes each week).

Please indicate the classes you are interested in via the attached spreadsheet and return to me.  You can number your preferences and leave blank cells where you are unable to teach (we cannot guarantee first preferences, but we will do what we can).  Please also indicate if you have or do not have a current casual/sessional contract with the Department of Immunology teaching.  If you are keen to teach more than one class, please indicate this in the spreadsheet.  If you have not taught with us before, please also send a brief CV.

Please note that we are collecting expressions of interest only at this stage.
  It will be early February before we make offers to people.  Please check with your supervisor that they are happy with you tutoring or demonstrating (it does look good on a CV!).  All enquiries and expressions of interest - please contact Kim Murphy ( directly.
