Call for Student Partners: MacPherson Institute

The Arts and Science Program, and the MacPherson Institute, are thrilled to continue their students partners program for the Fall/Winter 2017/18.

They are currently looking for students to work on a number of projects, some of which are already underway, while others are just being formulated. Students will have the opportunity to enter into the work at the stage that is of most interest to them. These positions will involve about 5 – 10 hours of paid work per week, between Sept. 2017 and April 2018. The specific number of hours worked will depend on the project.

Please see the MacPherson Student Partners posting document for additional information on each of the projects.

How to Apply

If you are interested in filling in one of the student positions, you will be asked to identify one to three of these projects and write a brief (about 250 word) interest state for each. These project interest statements should include the following:

  • A description of why the project seems interesting/important to you.
  • A proposal for the role you might play on the project team.
  • An indication of the skills/experiences/interests/perspectives that you’d bring to the project team.

To apply, submit your project interest statements, along with some information from your resume, using the application form.

Applications must be received by Nov. 27 at 4:30 p.m. to be considered.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Beth Marquis.
