Undergraduate students that are interested in public service careers should consider working with the Government Research Bureau (GRB). The GRB is an academic research organization that combines intellectual risk-taking with current research methods to analyze issues affecting the State of South Dakota.
By partnering with students to participate in actual research, the GRB fosters a learning environment with close interaction of faculty. This close interaction with student workers gives faculty the opportunity to provide professional feedback and recognition.
It is well known that scholarly activity helps make undergraduates’ resumes more attractive to graduate schools and prospective employers. It also gives faculty members the interaction needed to write detailed letters of recommendation.
Positions are available for work-study eligible and non-work-study eligible students. If you are unsure if you are work-study eligible, please contact the Registrar’s Office at 605-677-5339.
Hired students are able to work a maximum of 10 hours per week. Some travel may be required (e.g. visit sites, meet with officials). Work hours are to be completed in the computer lab at the Farber House on USD’s campus.
Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis, but hires typically coincide with the beginning of each semester (e.g. fall, spring, summer).
