Undergraduate Temporary Employment

Argonne provides undergraduate students with excellent opportunities to work on a temporary basis with scientists and engineers as a Research Aide.

In this position, students are assigned specific technical tasks to support their assigned division’s research agenda and needs.

As temporary employees, students earn a salary and are expected to possess the skills required to do the assigned task when they arrive. Understanding the scientific basis for the work is generally not emphasized. Unlike research internships, research aide appointments are considered jobs at Argonne.

These appointments are made primarily during the summer months.
