At the beginning of every semester, the Jewish Studies program will announce professors who are seeking Research Assistants (RAs). This is an excellent opportunity for students to find out more about academic work in their areas of interest.
Being an RA typically means working 5-10 hours per week helping a professor with research and can be for credit or for payment. Sometimes our faculty members are looking for students with particular technical or linguistic skills. At other times they may be seeking students who have already completed relevant coursework.
