Undergraduate Employment Opportunities
Hourly positions (grader, tutor, research assistants) are regularly available at the start of each academic term. Ads for these positions are posted on the CS student mailing list. Good students that are especially helpful and friendly are also nominated by the faculty to the department to be hired as tutors.
Graduate Employment Opportunities
A limited number of Assistantships are available each academic year. As graduate applications are received, accepted students are reviewed for possible assistantship offers. If you are not offered an assistantship as part of admission but would like to be considered for an assistantship in the future, please consult with your advisor.
Funded research positions are regularly available. While no specific positions are being advertised at this time, it is highly recommended that you contact faculty members in your specific area of interest to seek additional funding opportunities.
