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.
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!
College of Engineering undergraduates,
The College of Engineering is looking for around 24 Engineering Pack Leaders for the summer program described below:
Short for “Engineering-Freshman Intensive Transition,” E-FIT is a five-day academic program (August 16-20) designed to increase success for incoming college students. The program offers a glimpse into the University’s rigorous academic expectations and college life prior to the start of the semester.
Pack Leaders will be responsible for:

- Helping students navigate campus-take students to/and attend some study and discipline specific sessions with students, have meals with students
- Running the lab sessions-helping with projects and ensuring safety
- Grading exams and homework assignments
- Interacting with the students and being a good role model
You will be compensated $500 for the 5 day period plus 1 day of training. Meals will be included and if you are living in the residence halls, you will be allowed to move into your room early.
The Mobile Engineering Education Lab is looking for more student teachers!
Mobile Engineering Education Lab (ME2L) Student Teachers will travel to local schools and teach lessons that will both educate and inspire students in various disciplines of Engineering. Student Teachers will be responsible for traveling to schools to conduct demonstrations, speak to young “future” engineers, organizing and maintaining MEEL vans, as well as playing a role in developing new demonstrations. The Regent’s Service Program covers schools within 5 miles of UNR, however Student Teachers may be required to visit schools outside of this range. This position offers a flexible work schedule. The duration of the position is through the end of the 2014-15 Academic Year.
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.
On behalf of the Air Force Research Laboratory, you are invited to apply to participate in the 2015 summer internship program sponsored by the Directed Energy and Space Vehicles Directorates.
The application for the 2015 summer program opens on November 4, 2014, and the AFRL will be accepting applications from students with top academic credentials and an interest in science, engineering, and mathematics. Students from undergraduate- and graduate-level studies, as well as select junior and senior high school students, are eligible for the program. Graduate students also have the opportunity to continue their thesis research, provided the AFRL topic coincides with their research objectives.
