Student Work in the Biology Department

The biology department typically hires about 85 student workers for the academic year and additional students in the summer. We hire students to work in the greenhouse, stockroom, stockroom office, department office, to clean the aquaria and turtle rooms, to work as research assistants, teaching assistants (TAs), and more.

For any questions about applying for these positions please email Kathie Towler –

A note about TA positions – applicants need to get permission from the professor who is teaching the section they want to TA prior to applying.  Applicants should have completed and done well in that course.  These are not suitable positions for first year students.
