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.

Full-time positions

With over 30 full-time faculty and staff, the ELP occasionally has openings. Qualified applicants can check for open positions and apply through the Penn Human Resources website.
