Graduate Research Assistant

Mission Statement
The Center Violence Prevention at the University of Utah will serve as a national leader in the fight to eliminate relationship and sexual violence among U.S. college students. Using a power-conscious, intersectional framework, the Center seeks to bridge the gap between research and practice by bringing together the expertise of researchers, prevention educators, and students to execute a comprehensive research agenda focused on the prevention of relationship and sexual violence and to disseminate knowledge across the U.S. The work of the Center will intentionally focus on students from historically minoritized backgrounds, including students of color, queer and trans students, and students with disabilities.

More information about the Center, including goals and members of its Advisory Board, is available here. The Center is in the development stages, and we seek to hire student staff to assist in the development and execution of the goals and objectives.

Graduate Research Assistant Job Description
The Center for Violence Prevention seeks to hire graduate research assistants to assist in managing and conducting research related to relationship and sexual violence prevention.  Specifically, these graduate assistants will assist in conducting literature reviews; collecting, managing, and analyzing data; and developing reports, manuscripts, and presentations from the research. The GA should have an interest in power-conscious, intersectional approaches to research, specifically as it relates to relationship and sexual violence on college campuses.

Interested applicants should submit the following materials:
o A letter of application;
o A statement describing their understanding of the role of intersectionality in
violence prevention work;
o Resume or CV
o Names and contact information for two references

Materials should be submitted to Dr. Chris Linder, by August 28, 2020 at 5 p.m.
