Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
IERES-affiliated faculty members may apply for scholarly research assistance and GW students may apply for the opportunity to work as research assistants for IERES faculty.
Information for students:
For student applicants, priority is given to graduate students, particularly from the Elliott School, but undergraduates may also apply. Preferences go to students who are:
- Enrolled in the European and Eurasian Studies program;
- Enrolled in other Elliott School M.A. programs;
- Enrolled in Ph.D. programs in any discipline working on topics in European, Russian, or Eurasian studies;
- Federal Work Study students;
- Members of other affiliated programs;
Important restrictions: Current holders of full-time fellowships from GWU or The Elliott School of International Affairs are not eligible. Current holders of additional GW-funded job(s) may not work more than 40 hours per week between/among all GW-funded jobs. Hours recorded in excess of 40 hours will not be funded.
Compensation will be at the rate of $12.00 per hour. The number of weeks worked per semester and then the number of hours worked per week will vary. Pay is for hours worked only, as verified by the faculty sponsor. Students cannot be paid for work done prior to their formally getting on the payroll.
Information for faculty:
IERES-affiliated faculty who are conducting research on Europe are eligible to apply. Please send an email to email@example.com containing a brief proposal (no more than one page) that outlines the research assistance you require (including any particular skills, such as language or statistical knowledge) and describes its importance for you. If there is a specific student with whom you wish to work, please specify this; otherwise we will try to match you with a student applicant who best matches your needs. Hours allocated must be used during the semester in which they were awarded.
Applications for Spring 2014 are due January 15, 2014.
Research assistance is supported by the Maria H. Davis European Studies Endowment and by a gift from A. Michael Hoffman.
