At the Institute of Computational Linguistics we employ a relatively large number of students in more advanced semesters as assistant assistants and tutors. The tutors are mainly employed for the programming lecture, the student assistants often for very independent development work in research. Working as a student assistant or tutor is a good opportunity to get experience in research and development. It is therefore not surprising that teaching or research assistants are mostly recruited from the ranks of former student assistants. Vacancies are advertised on the usual channels (homepage of the institute, newslist).
