Project Assistants help an individual professor with a research project or work in the Visual Resources Collection (slide room). Duties and requirements vary according to the particular position. Most appointments are in the 33-75% range. Besides a stipend, fringe benefits such as health insurance and tuition remission are also included. The department and individual professors must post notices announcing the position and detailing the requirements; students apply directly to the individual faculty members or unit heads, who have complete discretion to hire whom they wish.
