Graduate Assistantships and Employment
New Job Posting Template (for Schools/Departments who want to post a graduate position)
A limited number of graduate job opportunities are assigned by individual schools and departments on a competitive basis. Full-time students will assist with faculty research, tutoring and administrative tasks. Graduate assistants may receive a stipend (that varies from program to program) and often a partial or full tuition scholarship. Please be advised that University policy does not permit us to hire a student who may already be employed in any other capacity at the University.
Grad students who qualify may apply for federal work-study positions on campus, or take on part-time, off-campus employment opportunities in Pittsburgh.
