RA & TA Matching

Research Support maintains an actively advertised and updated directory of Northwestern students who are interested in Research Assistant and Teaching Assistant/Grader opportunities.

To request NU student RA or TA/Grading support, please submit the RA & TA/Grader Support Request Form. Upon receipt of your form, our team will review applicants and provide you with a brief list of qualifying students, whom you are free to contact for interview scheduling and hiring purposes.

Please note that our team does not pre-interview students--this is an important step for faculty requesting support to complete before selecting a student for hire. As before, the hiring process should be completed within the faculty member's home department.

We request that you inform the Research Support RA & TA Matching team whenever a new student is hired such that we can keep their availability information up to date within our directory.
