Contribute to a Global Health Textbook Before it is Published Job Opportunity

Posted by Tim on August 16, 2018 in Community Announcements, Job Opportunity, Student Assistant, Student Job Opportunities

The Community for Global Health Equity is coordinating the development of a global health textbook written by UB faculty and their local, national, and international partners and published through Springer Publishing Company. The book is intended to highlight the multidisciplinary nature of global health work. Chapters include content focused on many different subject areas including but not limited to refugee health and wellbeing, the exposome, the global child, and antimicrobial resistance.

We need your help to ensure the content is appropriate for future classes of multi-disciplinary, undergraduate students. At the start of the fall semester, we will hire student assistants at a rate of $10.40 per hour to review chapters and provide anonymous feedback to faculty regarding content and writing style (we’ll supply you with a rubric to assist with this review). This is a unique opportunity to influence the quality of a university-level textbook before it hits the shelves. We will compile your feedback by the end of September – you would need to complete this work in one months’ time.

Once we have selected the final group of students, I will reach out to you to complete the necessary paperwork. If you are currently employed or will be employed at the University at Buffalo during the fall semester, please let me know. Student employees cannot work more than 20 hours per week.

Please let me know by Friday, August 17th if you are interested in this opportunity by sending me your name, expected graduation date, degree program, whether or not you have a fall 2018 appointment at UB, and a statement of interest (100 words) to:  jmscates@buffalo.edu. Please note that your interest does not equate with your selection. We have limited spots and would like to select students representing diverse disciplines and backgrounds.

Our group will convene the 2nd week of classes to begin this work. Many thanks for your prompt reply and interest.
