Paid undergraduate research positions available

April 26, 2012

A red rubber stamp of the word "PAID"NIU’s Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning is launching the Undergraduate Research Assistantship program.

The new initiative pairs inquisitive undergraduates with faculty who are conducting research. These paid assistantships are a great way for undergrads to get ahead in their field.

URAs will support approximately 15 to 20 students during the fall or spring semesters or the summer term.

Students selected for Undergraduate Research Assistantships are able to work under the guidance of a faculty member in a position that is directly related to their career path and/or academic discipline.

All student applicants will follow the instructions outlined on the URA proposals.  Selection faculty will select their student for the URA, and hiring paperwork will be processed through OSEEL.

Call (815) 753-8154 or [email protected] for more information.
