At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Human Rights Research Assistant Position

Susan Gzesh, Senior Lecturer in the College and Executive Director of the Human Rights Program is seeking a Research Assistant for Autumn Quarter 2011 to work with her on the development of a new course, the Practice of Human Rights which will be offered in Winter Quarter 2012. The RA will be responsible for helping with the development of the case-study which will be the centerpiece of the course - an analysis of the range of advocacy projects and social actors working on the Chicago Police Torture cases.

The RA will do archival research, interviews, and other tasks to prepare a set of research problems for students in the course. PhD students are preferred, but 3rd or 4th year College students or M.A., M.P.P., or J.D. students may apply. I will give priority to students with a background in Human Rights, U.S. history (particularly regarding the African American experience), or police practices, etc. If the RA is a PhD student, this position may evolve into a TA-ship for Winter Quarter if course enrollment is sufficient. Please send your c.v., references, and a brief statement of interest to Susan Gzesh, by Monday, September 19, 2011.

This position is open only to University of Chicago students. The position will pay $15/hour and is open to work-study and non work-study students.
