How many hours will I work per week? Will I work nights and weekends?

Printer-friendly version

Students work typically 40 hours per week, however actual hours vary depending on project needs. Some projects require early morning, late night or weekend work; details will be included in the project description, and will be discussed by the researcher/mentor during the interview process. Work includes all aspects of the research process, including field and laboratory data collection, data management and analysis, and developing methods, proposals, and presentations. In addition, there are one-hour educational workshops and seminars held one to two evenings per week after dinner. All participants are required to attend these educational programs.
