Academic Research Positions
During the academic year, and most often during the summer, many professors hire students to work with them on a research project. Student Academic Research Assistant positions are not always advertised through the Student Employment Office. Information for such positions can be found at the Dean of the Faculty’s Office.
Student Research Assistants are often paid via grant money. However, if a faculty member hires a student as a Research Assistant who is going to be paid from the department’s employee budget rather than from grant money, the student will be paid at a grade C pay level. Furthermore, like any other student worker, Research Assistants must have their Work Authorization Card and must complete an electronic timesheet on Garnet Gateway.
