Arizona State University has this wonderful Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship program that lets undergrads get involved with research and gives them credit for it too. I’ve got a couple of projects on the go that could use some helping hands:
#1. “The role of cultural transmission in the construction of human disease ecologies: a Nivacle example” – my dissertation research, and some side projects in preparation for the Study Abroad interns I will be hosting this summer. Preference will be given to students who intend to apply to the Paraguay internship program (details for the 2011 program will be announced here when the final approval comes through: http://shesc.asu.edu/paraguay).
#2. “Motivations for influenza vaccine uptake” – a project I’ve been working on with Dr. Dan Hruschka.
As I will have limited internet access in the field, and therefore won’t be around to provide guidance all the time, I’m looking for self-directed students who are very detail-oriented and have strong organizational skills.
If this sounds like you, or an undergraduate student you know, details about the application process are here: http://shesc.asu.edu/ugresearchapprenticeships. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, January 25th, 2011.
