Undergraduate RA request form

SIEPR is pleased to provide administrative and financial support for faculty members and postdocs to hire undergraduates as research assistants throughout the year. We will fund up to two RAs per faculty member at the rate of $17.50 per hour. If you would like to hire an undergraduate RA, please complete the Request Form below.
Due to Stanford’s Administrative guidelines, prospective undergraduate RA applicants SHOULD NOT begin work on these projects until their hiring applications have been submitted and approved by Stanford’s Human Resources department. Please note that if the student has an additional job on campus it will directly impact their availability on your project (there is a 15 hour/week maximum for undergraduates.)
If you do not already have an RA identified, we will assist you in publicizing your RA opportunity, with the applications coming directly to you for review.  
Once you have identified the student(s) you’d like to hire, please contact Lisa Gounod ( with the student’s name and email address.  Once the RA has been approved by Stanford HR, SIEPR will let you know that the student can begin work.
