Ongoing: Research Assistant

The Stigler Center invites current undergraduate and graduate students to apply for paid research assistant (RA) positions.

Please keep in mind that the Stigler Center seeks RA support with varying volume and frequency throughout the year. After an applicant submits their RA application form, they will be added to an active directory of students interested in serving as Stigler Center research assistants when the need arises.
