Research Assistants

Welcome to research at Montclair State University's Linguistics Department.

We've listed the items that Montclair's Human Resources Office requires before you can get paid as a researcher. Please contact the Webmaster at johnsond@mail.montclair.edu with your questions.

We need the following documents from you in order to get you into Montclair State's personnel system:

• Passport (if not a U.S. citizen)

• Driver's license

• Social security card

• A Federal W4 tax document that you can print or get in the department office.

• A New Jersey W4 tax document that you can print or get in the department office.

• An Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) form that you can print or get in the department office.

Timesheets
Fill out a green timesheet for each two week pay period and submit to the project director for your project.

Getting Paid
It is vital that you submit all necessary paperwork in order to minimize delays in finalizing each appointment, and ensure that appointees will be compensated in a timely fashion for the services they render.  Once all paperwork is submitted, paychecks will be issued and mailed every two weeks.  Depending on the pay period, a partial payment may be given to you, followed by a supplementary check the next week to catch you up with the regular payment schedule.
