Research Employment Opportunities


Research and creative activity serve as a driving force for innovation in our society, as a means for understanding and interpreting our world, and as an expression of our noblest aspirations and goals. At The George Washington University, research is a central part of our mission, enhancing our educational goals, as well as our service to the community and nation.

As stated in the GW Strategic Plan for Academic Excellence, our goal is to move GW into the ranks of the top-tier research institutions through continued and enhanced facilitation of faculty scholarship and research growth. A key strategy in accomplishing this is to recruit, reward and retain an outstanding and diverse faculty.

With more than $175 million in research underway every year across the University and its affiliated hospital, GW’s faculty and students are engaged in a wide-range of cutting-edge and innovative research across many fields and disciplines.  Information on the exciting research currently being conducted at GW can be found through the main page for the Office of the Vice President of Research (OVPR).  See a list of GW's centers and institutes.

Full and part-time staff positions in the area of research are searchable at GWU.Jobs.

GW students interested in research may seek internships and part-time jobs on campus with various departments.  Please visit the department websites and/or the GW Career Center for more information on research opportunities for students.
