Open undergraduate Research Assistant positions:

  • National Ethics Project undergraduate RA: The National Ethics Project (NEP), a mixed-methods research project that seeks to understand comprehensively where and how ethics instruction occurs in the US by focusing on the key perspectives of students, instructors, and institutions, is currently looking for one or more undergraduate research assistants to contribute to data collection, data entry, and other research activities. The NEP brings together educators, practitioners, and researchers to illuminate areas of need and to develop high-impact interventions. NEP will give individuals and institutions the tools to assess how ethics is (or is not) being taught at their institution, and it will empower them to grow their ethics education initiatives.
