Become a Lab Advisor
UPDATE: 8/2/12 - It looks like we have enough students for Fall 13.
The College of Engineering seeks undergraduate Seniors and Graduate students to work as Lab Advisors in its Student Imagineering Lab (Tinker Lab). The Lab Advisors will provide advice to students working in the lab as well as supervising the overall lab operations and safety. Experience with machine tools and build-it-yourself projects is preferred but not absolutely necessary in this position. Lab Advisers will work 10-15 hours per week. The pay is $11/hr.
Lab hours: Mon-Thurs, Noon to 10pm and Fri, Sat, Sun, Noon to 6pm.
To be eligible to work, you must be registered as a full time student at Boston University. You cannot work more than 40 hours a week for all your jobs at BU. International students need ISSO paperwork to begin work and cannot work more than 20 hours a week for all jobs they have while classes are in session.
(If you are a Graduate Teaching Fellow [GTF], Research Assistant [RA], or Dean's Fellow [DF or DRF], you must have permission from your supervisor to work, since the GTF, RA and DF or DRF [funded] positions are considered 20 hours a week, assuming you receive a stipend and tuition. International students who are in GTF, RA and DF or DRF positions are not eligible to work, since you cannot work more than 20 hours a week. These rules do not apply in the summer or during semester breaks.)
