Doctoral Student Opportunity for 2016-7 Academic Year/Office of Residential Academic Initiatives

Modified: June 14, 2016

The Office of Residential Academic Initiatives (ORAI) is hiring a part-time Graduate Assistant for the 2016-17 academic year. The position averages 10 hours per week and, with an annual stipend of $10,560, could round out the funding needs of doctoral students at different stages of degree progress. Candidates must plan on spending all three quarters on campus, but occasional short-term absences for research and conference travel are fine if arranged in advance. 
The substance of the job should appeal to a wide range of doctoral students and would enhance any c.v. for tenure-track or “alt-ac” positions in the future. The ORAI GA advances student learning in Northwestern’s residential college program by participating in programming, organizing student leader training, collaborating with fellow graduate students who serve as Assistant Chairs in the residential colleges, and facilitating assessment of learning outcomes. 
The ORAI GA's workspace will be located within the ORAI suite at 2122 Sheridan Road. The full position description and application is available here.
The Office of Residential Academic Initiatives is eager to fill this position before their programs get underway after Labor Day. The preffered deadline is Friday, July 8, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Interested doctoral students who have questions about the position may contact Associate Director Nancy Anderson by email or phone (847-491-2233).
