We have assistantship opportunities for students who will support our youth programming and research. Students will work with interdisciplinary teams of faculty and students to launch a study on youth perceptions about their rural communities; as well as to develop and conduct programming for youth. These assistantship will provide excellent opportunities for gaining hands-on experience in research and its direct application for various audiences. We have several ongoing projects so we will assign students based on fit with the project. These assistantships can be partial (e.g., 10 hours) so that they can be combined with other positions, or full (19.6 hour assistantship). Applications will be accepted from any major.

Required hours per week: 10 to 19.6
