Part-Time Research Assistant, English-Spanish Translator
The Marsico Institute for Early Learning is housed in the Morgridge College of Education (MCE) at the University of Denver. We have dedicated ourselves to improving learning environments and outcomes for children, birth to age 8. We identify the best in early learning research, practice, and policy, and we deliver that information at just the point it will be useful to academics, practitioners, policymakers, and parents - the people who can create and implement changes to improve the lives of young children. The quality of relationships and learning opportunities that young children experience can set the stage for what they will be able to accomplish throughout the rest of their lifetimes.
The Marsico Institute is accepting applications for a part-time (10 hours/week on average) Research Assistant, English-Spanish Translator who will work as part of a grant-funded team dedicated to developing and enhancing the knowledge base on engagement in STEM learning opportunities for young children with disabilities.
