Graduate Research Assistants contribute, with supervision, to a research program within the Department of Political Science. Research projects vary based on faculty member(s) the GA is assigned to and the ongoing research they are conducting. Graduate Assistants are asked to complete such tasks as editing papers or book chapters; grading; managing websites; assisting with instruction; indexing; background research and information gathering; and other administrative duties.
Graduate Administrative Assistants are enrolled in a graduate program and assigned duties by an administrative unit. You may work in offices such as the Dean of Students, Career Services, Residential Education or the Office of the Comptroller. Responsibilities should relate to your program of study and serve as legitimate work experience.
