Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) Positions

Graduate research assistants play a key role in many of the research projects in the Center for Children & Families. GRA positions provide graduate students with financial support while giving them the opportunity to work with faculty or staff members to do applied research with children and families. GRA positions come available periodically throughout the year as new projects start or as changes occur in continuing projects. If you are applying for our doctoral program and are interested in one of the Center initiative areas or the specific work of one of our researchers, please indicate this on your doctoral application.
