Employment Opportunities with Admissions and Records

*Jobs/Internships* No Comments »

Admissions and Records is growing fast at UNR!  There are several immediate needs for assistance in registration and administrative tasks including an introduction to PeopleSoft and other systems.  In addition to the technical needs, we have a slew of new registration responsibilities (Post Requisite Checking, remedial no drops, etc.) that result in troubleshooting issues and processing.  Good student and department service is a must as we welcome our largest class ever.  We are potentially hiring some good help for counter, phones, and potentially much more for the right person.  We tend to “grow our own” and hire from within – plus it’s a good work environment and can be good career experience regardless.  Open to LOBs, casual hires, GAs, and student employees.

Please contact Heather Turk at for more information.

The Engineering Tutoring Center is looking for a few great tutors in all majors!

Do you have a 3.0 overall GPA, received no lower than a B in your Engineering courses, a willingness to help your fellow engineering students, at least a sophomore who has been at UNR for a year, and want to tutor up to 20 hrs per week??  Please submit your application!

Grad Students with or without a 10-hour assistantship can be hired too!!

Classes available for tutoring are only limited by the tutors who apply! Don’t see a class you need help in, know someone who’s already passed it well-ask if tutoring for the ETC is something they’d do!

NASA Academy Internship Program Call for Applications (Due Feb. 15th, 2015)

*Jobs/Internships*, Undergrad Research Opportunity No Comments »

My name is Parag Gupta, and I am the Vice-President of Operations of the NASA Academy Alumni Association (NAAA).  The NAAA is composed of nearly 1,000 former students who participated in the NASA Academy Internship Program.  I was honored to be in this program myself as an undergraduate student at Vanderbilt University, and it provided excellent introductory research and leadership experience for my current role as a doctoral candidate in mechanical engineering at Northwestern University.

The Academy is the premier internship offered by NASA and has a main goal of training future leaders of the space industry.  The summer research program attracts undergraduate and graduate students of various backgrounds, mostly in STEM fields.  More detailed information about the internship can be found here.

The interests of your undergraduate and graduate students may very well align with the opportunities provided by NASA.  Applications just opened on NASA OSSI and can be found by going to the “Search for Opportunities” window and searching for the keyword “Academy.”  The application deadline is February 15th, 2015.

I was hoping you may be able to help promote the NASA Academy to your undergraduate and graduate students who are currently pursuing STEM degrees by emailing the attached flyer and recruitment video link ( to them. ?????????????????????????????????

Thank you so much for your time and assistance on the matter!


Respectfully yours,


Parag Gupta

Vice-President of Operations, NASA Academy Alumni Association
