Peer Research Assistant

​Job Title:    Peer Research Assistant
Pay Rate:    $10.60/hour
Department:    Library
Location:  Raether Library and Information Technology Center

The Library invites students in any major to submit an application to become a Peer Research Assistant for the 2019-20 academic year. The Peer Research Assistant program is a new program that seeks to expand the reach of the research librarians. As an assistant, you will be available for scheduled and drop-in appointments to help your peers as they navigate the increasingly complex process of doing academic research. You will work with them to overcome some of the most common difficulties that students face when doing research:

•    Getting started

•    Identifying appropriate information resources

•    Developing effective search strategies

•    Evaluating sources

•    Formatting citations

If you have a passion for research, this is an excellent opportunity for you! You will engage with your peers in meaningful ways when they get stuck with some aspect of a research project. You don’t need extensive knowledge of research – just the desire to learn, improve, and develop research skills in a variety of academic subject areas.

Work schedules are flexible. You will work approximately 5-10 hours per week. Shifts are available Sunday through Thursday, from 7pm to 10 pm.
