Researchers in our college are engaged in a wide range of amazing projects.

Dr. Julie Andsager, Professor in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media, is doing important work related to  water, food, and energy.  She is looking for a student to help her with a content analysis.  The position is  about 10/hrs per week on average. It will require reading newspaper articles and coding them for specific content.  If the person wants to learn more and contribute more, there’s possibility of co-authorship on a conference paper, but simply doing  the coding will not earn co-authorship.

Dr. Andsager’s student assistant will earn an hourly wage  AND will gain valuable research experience that will enhance a resume and demonstrate professional experience.

Here’s what it takes to apply for this position:

  *   No prior research experience necessary. (You will learn from an expert!)
  *   An interest in helping society through research on water, food and energy.
  *   An understanding that content analysis is language intensive so English fluency is required.
  *   Must be able to start work immediately and work through June 30 (although it may finish before that)
  *   Must be dependable and willing to work.
  *   Have enthusiasm and a professional attitude.
