RESEARCH ASSISTANT WANTED
To: All 1st & 2nd Year Students at the University of Miami
From: Michael Froomkin
I need a research assistant this summer. If things work out, we could continue the arrangement into next year. At minimum, I need someone who can write clearly, who is well-organized, and who is really good at finding things in libraries and on the Internet. If you happen to have some programming/HTML skills, that would be a big plus but it is not in any way a requirement.
Hours (and weeks) are flexible and negotiable in the range of 10-20 hours per week. It's also possible that if you need more hours I might be able to put together a package with another faculty member who also seeks part-time assistance during the summer.
The pay is the university's standard miserable hourly wage ($8/hr) for research assistants, but the work is sometimes interesting.
If interested, please e-mail a copy of your resume (c.v.), a short writing sample (non-legal is preferred), a transcript (need not be an official copy), and a note telling me how many hours you'd ideally like to work per week, and when you are free to start. Be sure to include your phone number and email address. Please put the words RESEARCH ASSISTANT (in all caps) in the subject line.
First year students are particularly encouraged to apply.
