Gain practical hands-on experience during graduate school while contributing to an exciting research project.
Faculty member, Dr. Chris D'Arpa, is seeking to hire a graduate student research assistant (RA) for Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 semesters to work with her on a grant-funded project related to public libraries and community health and wellness programming. The focus will be on a set of small or rural public libraries in Michigan. For more about the grant please see the information here, https://www.imls.gov/grants/awarded-grants search for LG-18-19-0015-19.
The RA will work up to 10 hours per week, for a total of no more than 300 hours during the Fall and Winter semesters. Given the late start funding will likely extend into the Spring/Summer session. The hourly rate for this position is $15.00.
