The expectations of this summer position have been specifically tailored so that individuals with full time jobs/internships/other commitments during the summer are able to participate if interested. No specific per week or per month time commitment is necessary; the time commitment could be as little or as large as the individual desires. Candidates must have at least periodic access to internet; but other than that, this position is highly flexible. The project involves identifying and coding relevant newspaper/news/internet and similar sources of information and periodically communicating with the research team (via email, telephone, snail mail, etc.) about the project.
Candidates who excel during the the summer (non-credit) position would gain valuable skills and knowledge about the process of conducting academic research, and could potentially segue the experience into the Fall 2012 (for-credit) position.
