Ethnography Project Team Leaders are Internship Positions modeled on Work Study. These are ideal for grad students wishing to gain experiential training in ethnographic fieldwork, methods and research design. Work study/internship allows students to gain a tuition reduction by contributing work to the OSEA field school while maintaining a focus on training and research.
OSEA seeks Grad Student Participants in Ethnography Field School
OSEA actively seeks grad students to participant in the Ethnography Field School. In order to facilitate this participation, OSEA offers intern staff positions that offer tuition reduction in exchange for "work study."
OSEA invites interested Grad students in anthropology or related fields to apply for intern positions as Ethnography Project Team Leaders. Grad Leaders receive the benefits of the ethnographic field training, while conducting their own research on topics related to their degree objectives. As Project Team Leaders grad students gain experience managing collaborative teams of undergrad field research. Responsibilities include mentoring, supervision, assessment, and management of research projects and student researchers; team leaders coordinate student research interest and projects; help students design and conduct research according to practical time-frames and to maintain discipline and rigor in their work; lead workshop forums for discussing fieldwork sucesses, frustrations, achievements, progress; and ensure that the students maintain OSEA standards of archival processing of research materials such as photographs, audio recordings, and video.

Spanish Fluency is considered significant in the evaluation of candidates
We seek grad students who are themselves training in ethnography while being able to lead a team of undergraduate students who are also learning how to do fieldwork. OSEA considers personal qualities such as positive outlook, drive, motivation, ability to socialize with diverse types of persons, and committment as highly valued criteria. We seek grad students who can create solutions to difficulties before "a concern" becomes an issue or problem.
