Graduate Assistant Positions

Graduate assistant positions with faculty and staff become available within SOM each semester. Graduate level positions are hired on an hourly basis with a pay rate of $12.75 to $14 per hour, depending on the expectations and type of position.

Available positions within SOM are posted on  Handshake.

Below are the guidelines for applying to these hourly positions. When applying:

  • You must be a full-time SOM student (taking 3 units or more) in good standing (which includes maintaining a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and not having any unpaid balances on your student account).
  • Late applications will not be considered. Be sure to apply by the deadline for the position.
  • Please allow up to 3 weeks from the position application deadline for notification of a decision on a posted position.

Due to a University policy, all employees, including students, must have a bank account that will allow the direct deposit of paychecks. Any student who receives an offer letter for a posted position must show proof of this before his or her work authorization can be completed.

Please note:  Most GA positions will not qualify as fulfilling a SOM internship degree program requirement for graduation. Contact the SOM Stevenish Career Management Center at SOMCareers@clarku.edu prior to the start of a GA position if you would like to ask about the requirement.

If you have any questions, please send them to SOMCareers@clarku.edu.

Additional On-Campus Jobs

All Clark departments post their jobs in Handshake. If you are applying to a job in another department, be sure to follow the instructions in the posting.
