Part-time Research Assistants Needed

Must be very knowledge of Thai politics, conflict in the deep south, and have solid research skills. Candidates need to have completed their undergraduate degree and preference will be given to those who either have their MA or are in the process of completing their MA. Political science majors or related field preferable but a background in journalism will be considered. The work requires analysis and summaries of Thai language academic and media articles, translation, and interviewing academics and politicians. Healthy English language skills are needed and having established contacts in the academic, political, and journalism spheres very beneficial.

Candidates should be able to work independently and with flexible hours. This position does not offer office space so, unless there is a meeting or an interview, candidates will need to have their own workspace and computer access.

Research will consist of two stages. The first begins immediately and requires 2-3 days of week of work over the next 3 months. The second stage begins in March 2009, and will require 2-3 days a week over the next six months.

One or two trips to the deep south will likely be required.

Interested candidates please send brief cover letter and resume to:

Only short listed candidates will be contacted.
