They provide professional non-teaching assistance to faculty members. GRA work typically consist of performing research tasks in a specific funded project. The availability of GRA depends on individual faculty. Please contact the faculty members for inquiries
Graders are hired by the department to work outside their degree pursuits and may be hired for a limited number of hours in any particular semester. Graders generally perform such tasks as grading and procuring exams, general classroom assistance, administrative assistance to the professor including entering grades, record keeping, and office hours, and serving as lab assistants. It is desirable that the grader for a course has taken the course before and earned a grade of B and above. Graduate students have priority when other qualifications are similar. Please send inquiries to the Department Chair with your information/qualifications and the courses you are interested in grading for.
