The Aspirnaut Summer Research Internship Program, which is administered through the Life Sciences Institute (LSI) at the University of Michigan (U-M), offers ten (10) Michigan high school students that are entering their senior year, a six-week immersive experience in scientific research, cultivating and encouraging pursuit of college education and careers in STEM fields. 

The Aspirnaut Program is hiring three (3) Resident Assistants (RAs) who will be responsible for supervising all time spent outside of the scientific research that the student’s will be conducting throughout the program. RA responsibilities will include building a community for high school participants, ensuring a safe environment within the residence hall and providing support for Aspirnaut program activities. 

RAs are expected to work from June 12, 2024 - August 4, 2024 and will receive a stipend of $6,000, in addition to a housing and meal plan during this time period. Please note that due to the on-site supervision responsibilities and the on-duty work schedule (listed under the Responsibilities section), the ideal candidate will not have any competing obligations, commitments, time away from the program or outside employment that would conflict with the responsibilities associated with this position throughout the duration of the program.  

This opening will be posted for a minimum of thirty calendar days (March 23, 2024).  The review and selection process may begin as early as the thirty first day after posting (March 24, 2024). This opening may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.
