If you are a second- or third-year student who is highly motivated, self-directed, and interested in getting hands-on experience with public health research, please consider applying. In addition to earning $15 per hour, Student Success Interns have opportunities for professional and leadership development outside of the research lab. Interns work directly with faculty and graduate students.
One internship will focus on Nutrition Communication research. The selected student will work on developing and testing empowerment-based messages pertaining to healthy diets for Mexican-American women. Please email your cover letter and CV/resume to Dr. Deepti Chittamuru.
The other internship will focus on Immigration Policy Communication research. The selected student will work on a research project assessing California’s communication environment related to state and local policies, such as health care and enforcement policies, that influence the well-being of immigrants. In addition to the paid intern, we will be looking for 2-3 students interested in working on the project for course credit during the spring semester. Please email your cover letter and CV/resume to Dr. Maria-Elena Young.
