Attention students graduating in May:
Who The research residencies are good for graduating students wanting to establish a less traditional career. It can provide an economic and networking base to launch a freelance business or something in the arts, research or academia.
Supervision In general we look for self-directed, self-starting residents. Residents report for administrative purposes (e.g. sick days) and some service purposes (e.g. labs, databases) to Rob Ryan. For general direction in service, tutorial and research they consult with the relevant member of faculty.
Schedule Residents’ hours must overlap with students, supervisors and administration as necessary but need not be completely traditional.
Criteria The ITP faculty chooses each resident based primarily on how the applicant’s strengths for service, tutorial and research line up with the department’s current needs and interests.
When Research Residents are chosen by the faculty right after graduation in the Spring. The job starts the week before classes beginning in the Fall. It is a one year appointment
Terms Research positions are half time 24/hours per week. The position comes with no health benefits but residents can purchase the University’s coverage at normal rates.
Funds There are no additional funds set aside for materials or travel but in the past residents have received funds for materials or presentations that have seen to also benefit the larger ITP community.
Application Students interested in the position should make George Agudow aware email@example.com by the last week of classes. It might also help talk to the professor with whom you think your service, tutorial and research might best line up. After the choices are made at ITP there is a formal application to fill out on the NYU web site. http://itp.nyu.edu/help/Help/BecomingResearchResidents
