IGCC Seeks Student Researchers

The Position: Graduate and advanced undergraduate student researcher positions with our SITC project are approximately 10 hours/week through the winter quarter, with the possibility of continued work through the spring quarter and the summer depending on job performance. This opportunity is open to UCSD graduate and advanced undergraduate students who have native or near-native comprehension of written Chinese.

As a  student researcher for SITC, the majority of your time will be conducting research, collecting data, and entering data into our in-house database. In addition to this database work, you will be assigned other research tasks, as time permits. Students who do not have the required Chinese language skills but are interested in conducting research on issues related to Chinese science, technology and innovation policy can also attend, as there may be other research opportunities available.

We will be holding an informational meeting for all UCSD graduate students and advanced undergraduate students interested in learning about research positions with SITC on Wednesday, November 7 at 3:30 pm in the IR/PS Dean’s Conference Room. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Heidi Serochi:

(hserochi@ucsd.edu; 858-534-8602) and bring a copy of your resume or CV.

Location:  IGCC’s main office is in the Robinson Complex (room 1230) on the UCSD campus near IR/PS. Most offices for the SITC program are located in the San Diego Super Computer Center. In most cases, we allow our graduate student researchers to do their work from home, on their own schedule.

About SITC: The IGCC Project on the Study of Innovation and Technology in China (SITC) at the University of California’s Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation seeks to understand the approaches, challenges, and prospects for success in China’s quest for technological transformation.
