Part-time graduate assistant positions

August 6, 2014

Dear Colleagues,

As the majority of you know, I administer a variety of federal grants that employ 40+ individuals per year. I have always tried to incorporate part-time positions in my grant proposals to assist graduate students who need part-time employment. During the 35+ years that I have administered grants and contracts, I have provided financial assistance (part-time employment) to 550+ graduate students.

At this time, I have several part-time graduate assistant positions available with a starting date of September 1, 2014. The positions do NOT provide a fee waiver; however, they do offer valuable professional experience, and the salaries are very competitive. Some of the basic duties are academic career counseling, providing classroom instruction, conducting workshops, tutoring, financial aid and college advising, and performing a variety of outreach services. We will be interviewing applicants immediately until the positions are filled. If you know graduate students who are currently looking for part-time employment, please have them contact my grant office in the HPER Building at 974-4466 immediately. Individuals with math and science background are encouraged to apply. In keeping with University policy, our application procedure requires that any interested students submit a cover letter and resume for consideration. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.


If you have any specific questions, please call me at 974-4466.


Have a Great Summer!
