Lurie College Hiring Student Research Assistant

As part of a collaborative project focusing on the intersections between dual immersion programs and students with disabilities, we are able to offer a student research assistant position. This position is funded for 60 hours of work through the fall and spring 2020-2021 academic year. In compliance with university policy, this position will pay $16/hr. This opportunity will provide you with experience working directly with faculty investigating issues surrounding dual immersion programs and special education, where you will be responsible for helping create a database of research participants, collecting data. While we will be recruiting multiple student volunteers, we also anticipate the person hired for this position to lead activities with other student volunteers.

Benefit to you: Exposure to research, and mentorship plus interdisciplinary experience. It is our desire that the candidate will be enriched and their abilities in conducting research will be expanded. The person selected for this position will have the opportunity to play an active role in the planning and implementation of this research.
