More substantive responsibilities are possible depending on student assistant’s interest. The Approximate workload is 10-15 hours per issue (3-4 times a year).

Qualitative Sociology is looking for 2-3 post-MA graduate students to serve as editorial assistants. Primary responsibilities would be finding and communicating with reviewers on manuscripts. The position is unpaid, but is a great way to get to know the field as well as the peer review process from the inside. In addition, the journal platform is entirely electronic and the work (approximately 3-4 hours per week) can be done anytime from anywhere with an internet connection. Training will take place by Skype. We need a one year commitment. We especially need students specializing in subcultures, work, education, gender and queer theory. Training in qualitative methods is a plus but not a requirement. Send a CV with an email message to David Smilde at email@example.com describing your research interests, your (probable) dissertation topic, where you are in your program and your plans for the future. Please also have your major professor send a brief message supporting your interest in the position (an extensive letter of recommendation is not necessary).
