PhD Students

All Stern PhD students must have prior consent to work as a Teaching Fellow, Graduate Fellow or Grader/Tutor from the Stern Doctoral Office. Please contact Anya Francioli at anya.francioli@stern.nyu.edu. Students must have a GPA of at least 3.0. All appointments are for one semester only. Therefore, students must reapply and gain Doctoral Office approval for each term and position they intend to work.

PhD students fall under the collective bargaining agreement of the UAW-Local 2110 for Graduate Employees at New York University and will receive compensation via payroll which is subject to union dues and taxes. Graders and Tutors are exempt.  For more information, please visit www.makingabetternyu.org/gsocuaw/ or contact Local 2110 at gsoc@2110uaw.org.  Please note that once an application has been approved by the Teaching Assistance Center the compensation amount cannot be amended due to an increase or decrease in the course enrollment.

International students who either have a green card or hold an F-1 visa are eligible to work. If you hold any other visa, such as an H-1B, you cannot work.
International students that have graduated are not allowed to work.
