Internship Opportunity with IOLS-Newsletter

Hi everyone

I have just come across news that the IOLS Newsletter (part of the IOLS research) is looking for undergrad students to assist with some research work. They are keen on using just two students for the moment, and the internship will be a great way of getting some experience in things like transcribing notes from interviews, etc. Please note that this is not a paid position; but it is a wonderful opportunity to engage with some rather dynamic researchers in the unit. If you are selected, you will be contacted only if and when something comes up and this will probably require about an hour of your time per week. The other type of talent that they are looking out for is a budding cartoonist. IOLS newsletter focuses on current issues regards labour, politics and socio-economic concerns, and is distributed widely among students, academics and organisations across the world. They need a cartoonist as part of the facelift being undertaken for the new editions so that they can put together political images that engage the imagination.

Let me know if any of you are interested!

Hi Shafinaaz

This post sounds interesting. How many weeks or months is it for? Will there be work to take home, and how many days in a week. What kind of jobs? Thank you.

The above link is Faith ka-manzi's latest poem, featured at the IOLS newsletter for Feb (released today).. It is an example of political transcript manifested in art. (agency and social consciousness)
