Students will be expected to commit 15 hours per week, and a hybrid work schedule is allowed. GA funding term is up to one semester initially, with potential for extension. Stipend, tuition, and SHP are provided.

Interested students should send Josephine ( an email detailing their interest in the project and their qualifications, a CV or resume, and the name and contact information of at least one reference. Students also need to confirm they have not committed to another source of funding for the spring semester. References will not be contacted without prior notification.
