Research Assistantship Opportunities


Every semester each faculty allocates a number of research assistant positions to graduate students.  Depending on the number of available research assistant positions in the departments, applicants may be considered for full-time or part-time research assistant.  A full-time research assistant receives a salary and is exempt from paying tuition fee whereas a part-time assistant receives half of the salary that is received by full-time research assistant, and is exempt from half of the tuition fee, excluding the student fund, for a semester. Applicants are advised to contact the relevant academic department for application and evaluation procedures.

Please provide your current CV and a letter of intention with your application. Your letter should explain how your skills, knowledge and experience match the needs of the research assistant post you are applying for.
