The Council on Undergraduate Research seeks a paid intern to work on the development of a digital archive of their quarterly journal. This internship provides the opportunity for a student to participate in archival creation and processing.
This individual will work directly with the Director of Communications to digitally archive the journal and making it more searchable on the CUR website. This will include scanning past issues, separating the issues into separate searchable pdfs for each article, inserting key words for each article onto the CUR site, and developing an archiving model to assist in continuing the process once they leave.
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and its affiliated colleges, universities, and individuals share a focus on providing undergraduate research opportunities for faculty and students at all institutions serving undergraduate students. CUR believes that faculty members enhance their teaching and contribution to society by remaining active in research and by involving undergraduates in research. CUR is a grassroots organization whose principal support comes from its dues-paying individual and institutional members. Together, they represent over 600 colleges and universities. Most of our members are private and public liberal arts colleges and comprehensive universities, although our membership does include faculty and administrators from research universities with a strong emphasis on undergraduate education.
Interested parties should send a resume, cover letter highlighting relevant skills and experiences and references to Lindsay Currie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
