CSDP Faculty Affiliates:
CSDP encourages scholarly engagement between our students and faculty by subsidizing the employment of CSDP-affiliated graduate students as research assistants. CSDP covers half the hourly wages of eligible students, up to $2000 per student per fiscal year (first-years are capped at $1500) as a 50-50 match. (CSDP-affiliated graduate students received language to this effect in their offers of admission to the Politics Ph.D. program.) CSDP faculty affiliates who wish to hire an eligible student as a Research Assistant should meet with the student to agree on the nature of the work, expected duration, and hourly pay rate, and then contact Daniel Rusnak ([email protected]) so he can set up an account and approve the RA’s hours bi-weekly. If you have a project but no specific student in mind, please provide Daniel with a brief description and we will attempt to facilitate a match. CSDP-affiliated graduate students are listed on this website.
