Professor Glenn Cohen seeks Research Assistants to help with various projects in bioethics and health law. At the moment, he is looking for RAs to staff two specific projects, but all research assistants are entered into a “pool” to which potential assignments are sent and they might sign-up.
He is currently looking for two to three RAs to help manage one (but more likely two) edited books for which he is one of the editors. One book concerns the choice in law, medicine, and public policy between focusing on statistical versus identified lives. The other focuses on the future of Human Subject Research Regulation.
Although familiarity with either topic is a plus, as is interest/experience in bioethics/philosophy, it is not necessary. Much more important is: competence/experience at project management (managing work flow, communicating with authors, maintaining records of drafts) and editing skills (ability to line edit work by individuals in multiple disciplines and sometimes non-native English speakers).
Time commitment: the book projects will be relatively quiet between now and mid-December (maybe an hour or two a week) and then heat up in December to March (10 hrs every other week)
To apply: Send Kaitlin Burroughs, kburroughs at law.harvard.edu: (1) A one paragraph statement of interest emphasizing your qualifications for the job. (2) Recent informal transcript. (3) CV.
