CASHA Graduate Assistant Opportunities


The Center for Applied Science in Health and Aging offers Graduate Assistantship (GA) positions to WKU Graduate students from a variety of related academic programs, such as Exercise Physiology, Psychological Sciences, Social Work, etc. Graduate Assistant responsibilities will consist of research responsibilities, as well as, service-related or general responsibilities.

CASHA GA’s are appointed after rigorous review and a competitive selection process.

Students wishing to apply for a graduate assistant position must submit the following materials:

  • Cover Letter (include previous knowledge/skills and career goals/research interests)
