The faculty assistant program gives selected master's students the opportunity to work closely with faculty members at the School of Information Studies. The program provides a unique and valuable extra opportunity to interact with the iSchool’s distinguished faculty researchers and practitioners. Each student who is selected can work for up to ten hours per week with the faculty members and can earn $10 per hour.
Positions are generally renewable each semester based on performance. We strongly encourage each student to work with only one faculty member over a period of time in order to build a strong professional relationship. These positions are intended to provide a meaningful professional experience as you move forward in your degree program.
Our matching and selection system intentionally uses a one-page skill summary in order to provide an opportunity for each student to develop and hone their skills for self-presentation. Please print a copy of the form, complete it, and send it to “Faculty Assistant Program, School of Information Studies, 206 Hinds Hall, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, 13244, USA.” To maximize your opportunity of being matched with a faculty member, submit your profile by August 1.
If you are successful, we will use your form to start the on-boarding process and you will receive a message from an iSchool staff member to complete the process.
