The Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies is pleased to offer Graduate Student Fellowships for the 2021—2022 Academic Year in the amount of $5,000 each. Fellows will be expected to work approximately 2-4 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters, and to produce a report for the Latino Data Project. This call is open for three Data Fellows and one Mapping Fellow.
The Fellows must be full time students at the Graduate Center. Their primary responsibilities will be to produce a Latino Data Project report along with other duties as requested by the Director of Research. Sophisticated proficiency of SPSS and Excel is required for the Data Fellows, and of ArcGIS, QGIS or any other mapping software is required for the Mapping Fellow, as well as experience working independently with quantitative data analysis. Training in studying Latin America and/or Latino experiences from a social scientific framework, and experience in carrying out research projects is highly desirable.
Interested candidates should submit the following in one PDF file in the following order:
• A 1-page, single spaced, cover letter (including name, department of study, academic level, email address, and brief description of SPSS or mapping software proficiency and experience working with quantitative data)
• Academic CV
• A research/writing sample, in which the candidate is the first, if not sole, author. This sample must demonstrate the candidate’s skills in both quantitative data analysis and written communication.
Please submit applications to firstname.lastname@example.org and any inquiries to the CLACLS Director of Research, Sebastián Villamizar Santamaría, at email@example.com. Applications are due no later than October 8th. We hope to notify the selected candidates no later than October 22nd.
The starting date for the fellowship will be in November 2021.
CLACLS was inaugurated in October 2001 with the support of a broad cross section of Latin American and Latino-studies faculty specialists representing academic disciplines in the arts, social sciences, and humanities from every CUNY college. CLACLS has worked to promote the study and understanding of Latin American and Caribbean cultures and the communities established in the United States by peoples from this vast and extraordinarily diverse region with a special focus on the New York City metropolitan area.
