Lab monitors:

The CSE department operates two instructional labs in Packard Lab that are open six days per week during the fall and spring terms.  We hire lab monitors to work in the labs.  Judging by results, we think this might be the best job on campus. About 95% of people who start this job as freshmen or sophomores continue working until graduation.  To find out why they do this and how to sign up, visit

Junior systems administrators:

The CSE department operates its own computer systems and network.  We hire junior systems administrators to help operate and maintain every facet of our operations.  About 98% of our departmental-level systems run some flavor of Unix or Linux.  If you are adept with computers and have more than passing interest in working in a academic production environment, we would be happy to chat about this job.  This is a small crew of students; typically we hire one student each year.  This is a work-study only position.  The pay is good but not great; if you just want to earn your money, we recommend that you consider the lab monitor position.  Interested people should contact the CSE systems manager.
