Graduate Assistant Job Openings
The Graduate School provides this information as a service to graduate students and to the hiring departments.
Please keep in mind that our office does not screen applicants, conduct interviews, or participate in any part of the selection process (except when hiring for our own unit). Therefore, if you have questions concerning your application or qualifications for a particular position, please contact the hiring department. You may also wish to contact Student Employment at 331-3238 for information on other student positions.
Positions may become available at any time. Generally, appointments are made prior to the beginning of each semester. However, from time to time, faculty or departments may obtain funding from outside sources for special projects and research grants for which they need graduate assistants.
GA Job Openings
Beware of phishing emails offering research assistantships. Check the sender's email address. If it does not match the sender's name or the signature line, and does not end in @gvsu.edu, it could be a scam. Do not reply, delete the email instead.
Openings are posted in order received, from newest (top) to oldest (bottom).
Departments generally begin creating positions, advertising them, conducting interviews, and making their selections approximately one month or more before each semester deadline.
Not all positions will be posted on this job board. Thus, you should check with the Student Employment job board as well. You should also contact the grad program departments directly as some departments recruit from within their own pool of grad students first.
