Paid Research Opportunity on Mass Movements

Stephen Kosack, a political science professor at UW’s Evans School of Public Affairs, seeks research assistance from advanced undergraduates interested in comparative politics and sociology, particularly popular struggles by disempowered or disenfranchised groups seeking to improve their lives or their government.  You will work with a team to develop a database of mass movements around the world, such as movements of workers, peasants, or religious or ethnic groups.  You must be comfortable working in a team, have strong research skills including attention to detail, and be interested in the challenge of seeking out and synthesizing large amounts of information, often from obscure sources in libraries and online, and then defending your judgments and evidence at meetings with other members of the team who may have reached different conclusions.  You should also have excellent writing skills and familiarity with Word and Excel.  A background in political science, economics, or sociology is a plus, as are reading skills in Spanish, French, Mandarin, and other Asian languages, but I will consider any student with a strong interest in politics and social science research.  Positions will pay $13.39/hour and are available starting in September for 10-15 hours/week.  All research assistants will participate in a one-month training program and a three-month trial period.  To apply, send a resume or CV and a cover letter outlining relevant interests, skills, and experience to
