  • Ask your professors about research opportunities. They may have positions available, or know of a project that does.
  • The U-M Careers page lists open positions at the University of Michigan. Students may find regular, temporary, or part-time positions here.
  • The U-M Student Employment page lists opportunities specifically for students.
