Job Summary

The Univeristy of North Georgia is currently accepting applications for two FUSE Student Researchers (Anthropology) on the Dahlonega campus. The two student researchers are needed to work on a digital video oral narrative research project about the 2011 earthquake, Tsunami, and nuclear accident in Japan. Students will be expected to meet regularly with the supervising professor to translate pre-recorded interviews from Japanese into English from the archive project. Students will need intermediate to advanced Japanese language skills (i.e. completion of JAPN 3001/3002 or above). Previous course work in anthropology would also be considered an asset. Students will be mentored and guided through the translation and research process in an effort to produce a 3-5 minute video presentation summarizing their work to be presented at an academic meeting within one year of completing the research. Each position will be part-time for 20-hours per week. Students should expect to work on campus for a minimum of one-day per week with the option of working remotely for the remainder of the weekly hours.

The research assistants will join the FUSE program to conduct focused and meaningful research, scholarly and creative activities alongside a faculty researcher from May 31 - July 23, 2021.
