If you’re interested in research or teaching assistantships, internships, or even volunteer work, you should check out the Human Development and Psychology Want Ads, a website where faculty can post these opportunities. This is a particularly good time to look because most faculty members are looking for their spring semester assistants right now. Keep in mind that not all professors will post openings on the website, so if you don’t see someone listed, you may want to visit the faculty links on the Human Development and Psychology websites, see if that person indicates he/she usually works with RAs or TAs, and then email the individual to express your interest.
To visit the Want Ads website click here. Don’t forget, though, that these are just internal positions, and the PRO System through Career Services is where your job search should start. We also have very few internal internship positions. Your internship search might also involve PRO and the list of some of our past internships, but it should begin by making sure you meet pre-requisites and by talking with a faculty member.
