Undergraduate Research Assistant (SRA)

We are constantly integrating NYUAD students from different fields of studies into our research: engineering, psychology, economics, computer science, media design, to just name a few. NTSI's interdisciplinary team always looks for talented, self-motivated undergraduate students as Research Assistants, either working during the Fall/Spring-semester, or during the summer break. As those undergraduate students will be actively involved in project work. We especially want students to engage in advanced research and apply critical thinking to find and assess possible solutions to existing tasks and problems. SRAs are paid a non-negotiable stipend of AED 30 per hour with a maximum of 15 hours per week, irrespective of class level, or the number of assistantships held. January Term and Summer Term assistantships are limited to 10 hours per week. Prospective applicants may be trained in the crossover of art & design, technology and innovation. An outstanding learning experience that is particularly essential for students interested in graduate school in the broad fields of design and engineering. Interested students should email a CV and a PDF (Portfolio with example projects) to the lab director. You should apply at least a semester in advanced.
