Part-Time Job @ Vanderbilt
We would like to announce a part-time job opportunity at Vanderbilt University. We are looking for a bilingual research assistant to code videos of parent and child interactions. We need a bilingual speaker who could commit to approximately 20 hours a week (the minimum that would be considered is 15 hours). Some students may need approval, particularly if they are receiving funding from their home department (please check into this prior to inquiring about this position). This is an hourly position and it does not provide tuition or a stipend. Hours are flexible. However, late afternoon or daytime availability between M-F is a definite plus for training. Please contact Dr. Twyla Perryman at 615-693-2755 if you are interested or know of someone else who would be interested. We hope to fill this position as soon as possible. Pay is $10.50 an hour. Thank you.
