Research & Instruction Department
The Middleton Library Research & Instruction Department is currently looking to hire a new Graduate Assistant to begin in the Spring Intersession 2014. The Graduate Assistant (GA) program functions both to offer on-the-job training for future librarians and to provide the Libraries with part-time employees, who form a useful and necessary part of the staff of the LSU Libraries. Hours of work may be scheduled Monday through Sunday and will likely include evenings and weekends.
Summary of duties: The Assistant will work an average of ten hours weekly on the Research Desk in Middleton Library, will participate in virtual reference service, and will work on projects related to the Research & Instruction Department.
Salary: $12,000 for twelve month appointment. This averages out to 83 1/3 hours of work per month, or 21 hours per week. This is subject to deductions for federal and state taxes. Graduate assistants are considered residents, for fee purposes only, and only for the period of their appointment. Full-time (20 hours per week) assistantship appointments will receive a full tuition exemption. You will still be responsible for fees.
Note: Preference will be given to those applicants who graduate in 2015 as well as those with previous library experience. Students must be full time (including summer) to be eligible for this position.
Application Deadline: To apply, complete the application on the Libraries Employment page under Graduate Assistant Employment: http://www.lib.lsu.edu/admin/gradasst/gradapplication.pdf, by April 10, 2014. For more information, contact:
