Academic Employment


An additional application is not required to be considered for academic employment.


Teaching assistant and Assistant Instructor appointments provide students with financial support as well as valuable experience working in the classroom under the supervision of a faculty member. Students who hold an academic position receive a tuition reduction benefit, a waiver of non-resident tuition, and faculty-level medical insurance at no cost to the employee.



Graduate Research Assistantship

Faculty members with grant-funded projects are sometimes able to offer paid research positions to qualified graduate students. Qualified students are approached directly by the faculty member requiring assistance. The salary will vary depending on the grant and scope of the project.
