Grad Student Program Assistant – Tufts Summer Research Experience

Brief overview:

We are looking to hire 2 graduate student program assistants for the Tufts Summer Research Experience, running from July 01 – August 9. This position would involve mentoring 11th– and 12th-grade student researchers working in labs across Tufts, with a primary responsibility of guiding students to turn their in-lab experience into scientific research.

Summary of the program:

The program runs for 6 weeks, June 30-August 9. We expect to have around 30 students from all over the world.  We have already admitted and placed some very strong students into labs situated in a broad range of departments from Biomedical to Chemistry to Child Studies & Human Development.  In addition to conducting research in the labs, the students will be working with science librarians, in the computer lab, receiving safety and RCR training, and participating in a journal club, along with other enrichment activities to introduce them to the research process and what is involved in developing a research question.  The goal is to give them a strong foundation for launching into research early in their college careers. The Tufts Summer Research Experience is part of a series of new residential pre-college programs that have successfully launched this past summer.

Responsibilities:

Graduate student program assistants will be responsible for guiding students through the process of translating their in-lab experience to scientific research.  This is a part time position, approximately 10 hours of work per week, working late afternoons (3pm-5pm).  The program runs for six weeks, from 07/01 – 08/09, with an additional training during the week of June 24th. Program assistants will work closely with the program director facilitating journal discussions, unstructured reading and writing time, networking sessions, and end-of-program poster sessions.  They will also work with mentor faculty to understand the research problems students are working on.  Program assistants should be comfortable with reading and discussing journal articles, and be able to work with research topics spanning a range of disciplines.
