Salem State's School of Graduate Studies offers a wide range of graduate and research assistantship opportunities, which benefit both students and faculty.
Graduate Assistantships provide students with professional development opportunities and work experience through involvement with projects that support university projects.
Research Assistantships link a graduate student with a faculty member to work on a meaningful research project, which may lead to a presentation at a conference, a joint publication or other significant professional activity.
Each assistantship consists of 10 hours per week or 160 hours each semester (fall and spring) at $17/hour during the fall and spring semesters (excluding summer and winter sessions). Schedules are subject to agreement between the graduate/research assistant and their supervisor.
Students enrolled in a graduate program for the 2024-2025 academic year should apply for graduate and research assistantships by the priority deadline of Monday, March 4, 2024.
