Dear CHSS Chairs and Directors, and Center Directors.


We have two announcements and ask that you please share with your colleagues!


First, from Brooke Gowl:


CHSS Research is in the process of hiring a graduate professional assistant (GPA) to work with Brooke Gowl, Associate Director of Research Development, this summer, with the possibility of a continued appointment into AY 2021-2022. The attached position contains all the details. This 10-hour per week position will assist CHSS Research in writing and producing information in support of faculty research and scholarship. The GPA will be responsible for assisting with various resources, such as maintaining content for the research section of the CHSS website, assisting with CHSS Research events, and creating articles for the research portion of the CHSS Digest (CHSS's monthly email publication). The GPA will also work collaboratively with other groups in the Dean's office.  Priority deadline for applications is midnight on May 5, 2021, but the position will remain open until filled.


Would you please share this opportunity with your graduate students?


Thank you so much for your help.


Best regards,
