Graduate assistants and doctoral associates

The Department of Educational Leadership, Research and Technology hires graduate students (typically doctoral students), as needed, to assist faculty with research and program development. In addition, usually one graduate teaching assistant position is available to teach certain undergraduate educational technology courses. Students applying for any of these positions typically must have familiarity with the educational systems and organizations that our programs prepare students to work in.  To apply as a new student, or to re-apply as an existing student, please fill out the ELRT DA/GA APPLICATION and send a letter of interest and a current resume to Gretchen St. John no later than February 15 of a given year. Decisions about graduate assistant and doctoral assistant positions are usually made in early spring for the following fall semester.
