Debate Graduate Assistantship at The University of Florida
Coach Debate and Study in Any Academic Department
****Apply soon---Graduate Admission Deadlines Approaching Quickly!!!!!****
The University of Florida Speech and Debate Team would like to invite candidates to apply for a graduate coaching/teaching assistantship to work with our policy debate program beginning fall 2012. The position would not require any teaching, just assisting with the debate program. However, teaching opportunities may be available for additional funding.  Because there is no graduate program in Speech Communication at UF, assistantships can be awarded to either MA or PhD students studying in any academic department! There is also the potential for using the assistantship’s tuition waiver to cover a portion of Law School tuition if the student is enrolled in a joint degree program. The assistantship includes a full-time (9 credit hours per semester) tuition waiver, a salary stipend, graduate student health insurance, and a tournament travel stipend.

The Graduate Assistant coach is expected to supervise and provide models for research and argument writing, oversee practice debates and speaking drills, manage research assignments, judge at and travel to at least three tournaments per semester. Kellie Roberts, our Director of Forensics, takes care of most of the administrative responsibilities such as travel arrangements and paperwork, so your responsibilities are much more focused on coaching the debaters.
Candidates are required to complete the admission application for the department they are interested in studying in by the department’s deadline (go to UF’s homepage at www.ufl.edu to link to academic departments and the graduate school). Please complete this process soon as several departments’ application deadlines are fast approaching.
In order to apply for the assistantship, please supply Kellie Roberts with the following information no later than January 15, 2012. Please email Kellie at robertsk@ufl.edu with the following information: your name, address, email, phone number, name of school you completed your Bachelors Degree (and Masters if completed) at and Major. Please also include contact information for three references as well as a one page coaching philosophy statement. This statement should include information about your coaching style and goals for a competitive program like ours that is tailored to all levels of policy debate.

If you are interested in more information about graduate assistantships with the University of Florida Debate Team, feel free to contact Kris Willis, Director of Debate, at kwwillis@ufl.edu.

Bump....Deadlines for PhD programs are coming soon. Let me know if you are contemplating applying to UF. We are actively recruiting on the national high-school circuit as well as developing a novice and J.V. program from within UF. In other words, we have something for everyone to coach.
