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 2009. 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 February 1, 2009. Please email Kellie at robertsk at ufl.edu with the following
information: your name, address, email, phone number, name of school you
completed your Bachelors Degree 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 small yet competitive program like ours that is tailored to all
levels of policy debate.

Policy Debate Coach, at silber at ufl.edu
