The Students as Scholars Database of Opportunities uses the existing HireMason framework to allow faculty and staff to post research and creative projects for undergraduate students. Career Services has worked with OSCAR to establish a specific category of "Undergraduate Research Projects" that allows faculty to list these positions and students to search for them.
You can log in to HireMason with your GMU username and password. If you encounter problems with logging in, please contact Career Services directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you need assistance or have any questions about OSCAR HireMason opportunities, please feel free to contact Samira Lloyd or Denise Nazaire at email@example.com.
Faculty have the option of listing positions with compensation, including academic credit and/or wages, and limiting the potential students applicants by GPA or major. Faculty can also ask students to submit a resume with their applications, using the very convenient resume-builder tool within HireMason. For assistance with posting these Undergraduate Research Projects, faculty can download the OSCAR HireMason Quick Guide.
Students can find available opportunities by logging in to HireMason
with their GMU username and password, then searching specifically for Undergraduate Research Projects (see our detailed instructions
). This is a great way to find research or scholarly projects, and to get familiar with HireMason so that you will be prepared to start your job searches later. The resume-builder is also an excellent tool!
