Seeking a research assistant this summer to support me in a process of revamping NUTR 304, Food Security, Nutrition, and Development, the second year policy course targeted to students interested in international food security and nutrition policy. Responsibilities include: providing input into course and assignment design, researching options for case studies and new course readings, and contributing to course instructional materials, including powerpoints and other course media.

This is a part-time, temporary position for up to 115 hours, to be spread over July and August. Compensation for the position is $20/hour.

This is a terrific opportunity for a FANPP or AFE PhD student interested in obtaining course design experience or seeking a deep dive into international food policy literature in preparation for (or shortly following) the oral qualifying exam. It would also be suitable for a masters-level student or recent graduate with an international policy focus. The candidate must be able to perform literature reviews, synthesize data through compelling visuals, and think creatively about pedagogical strategies. The candidate must be self-motivated and function with minimal oversight. The work can be done off campus or on, under the expectation that the candidate will be available for regular meetings either in person or via skype. Preference will be given to applicants who have taken NUTR 304 in the past few years.
