Gig Basics.

Are you interested in STEM and gender issues?

We need interns for a gender research community.

We are looking for undergraduate students or recent graduates in any human or science research-related major and those who are interested in learning about user experience.

Thematic analysis experience a plus. Some of our junior researchers were previous interns!

What is the gig?

The "Geeky Girl Reality" is a research study focused on learning the experiences of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We are currently collecting data from two global surveys: students enrolled in STEM programs at a university and professional women amid a STEM career.

Your role as a Research Intern for this project would be:

  • directly working with the research (for those who are able, to also gain university credit through a real world application of thematic analysis methods)
  • working with senior and junior researchers in USA, UK, and Hong Kong
  • assisting with social media
  • assisting with outreach to STEM organisations and university programs

This is a remote, online role that will average 10 to 15 hours per week for 3 months - we use Skype, email and Google hangouts to communicate.

We like to know the people who want to work with us. If you think you fit what we are looking for please apply with a cover letter explaining why you are interested.
