Part-time program assistants are student workers who staff our Student Center or provide administrative support to various ELP programs. As familiarity with the campus is extremely helpful, most program assistants are Penn students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Prospective applicants should check for openings on the Penn Student Employment website: http://www.sfs.upenn.edu/seo/. Questions can be directed to Candice Johnson, Coordinator of Student Services at email@example.com.
With a full-time faculty and staff of over 25, the ELP occasionally has openings. Current openings (if any) are listed below. Qualified applicants must apply through the Penn Human Resources website rather than through the ELP.
