Job Opportunities at the Taylor Institute

Research Assistant to Facilitate and Analyze Think-Alouds in SoTL Project with Surgeons (Jan - Dec 2018)

A team of surgeons conducting a scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) project funded by a University of Calgary Teaching and Learning Grant seeks a graduate student with experience in conducting think-alouds (or think-aloud protocols, or talk-alouds).  The data collection and analysis--with surgical residents as the students--will occur from January to December 2018, but ideally the RA would begin earlier to become oriented to the project and the team. If interested, the RA would also have an opportunity to join the team in the operating room as part of the orientation to the project.  Applicants should submit a CV/resume and a cover letter identifying relevant areas of experience and expertise to Tiffany Doherty (tldohert@ucalgary.ca), the Office Manager of the Taylor Institute's Academic Director.

Research and Program Evaluation (Ongoing)

The Taylor Institute regularly seeks part-time undergraduate or graduate student assistance in its evaluation, enhancement, and development of programs and activities.  RAs are asked to, for example, research and prepare lit reviews and annotated bibliographies, conduct interviews and focus groups, work with data (e.g., transcribing, coding, analyzing qualitative and quantitative data), and/or work with technology (e.g., website maintenance).  Interested students may submit a CV/resume and a cover letter identifying specific areas of expertise and interest related to the above for us to keep on file as new opportunities arise. Submit these materials to Tiffany Doherty (tldohert@ucalgary.ca), the Office Manager of the Taylor Institute's Academic Director.
