It depends on what is Applied Quantitative Methods. If it's the exact name of a course, I would say:

I am a teaching assistant for the course Applied Quantitative Methods.

You can also put the course name inside quotations. Above is how I wrote it my resume.

If Applied Quantitative Methods is an area of research, it would be better to use in.

Of can also be used in some other cases like: I am a teaching assistant of Prof. Davis.
