I Need a Research Assistant

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.

    I’ll take the job!! Please! Sign me up… wait a minute, even McDonald’s offered me more than that, just to wash lettuce, and cook fries. Nevermind I’m going to stay in fast food.

    Dear Professor Froomkin,

    If the work was internet-based I would be very happy to help. On top of that I imagine one would need to be a US citizen, as well as a Miami u/grad.

    I am an RA who very much enjoys hunting down things in libraries and on the net, any subject at all, though I have primarily worked in the fields of history, economics and archaeology.

    And by the way, in response to the sole comment appearing underneath your advert: I would much rather do RA work at humble pay than betray my conscience working for a big corporation like McD’s.

    Good luck finding someone – I envy those Miami students!

    Valerie

    Unfortunately, as the money comes from the law school, it’s reserved for hiring current students.

    The job is still open by the way….
