19 Apr Seeking Intern(s) for New Project
New York Times columnist and bestselling author seeks part-time intern who is highly motivated, has strong verbal and analytic skills, and works well in collaborative settings.
Primary focus of work is to code, analyze, and evaluate written transcriptions of dozens of life story interviews conducted in the last year for a new book. You’ll be part of a small team identifying patterns, doing statistical analysis, and developing conclusions about current trends in how we navigate major life events.
Ideal candidate would be an undergraduate in the social sciences — psychology, sociology, anthropology — or journalism, with experience in academic research and eagerness to share ideas and learn from a leader in the media world. Work could begin immediately and continue through late summer. Flexible hours, part-time, can be done remotely; unpaid, with small stipend at end. Also, we’re looking for more than one person, so you’re welcome to apply with a friend.
