Paid Collaborative Ethnographic Research Opportunity for advanced graduate students 

The University of Toronto Ethnography Lab is extremely pleased to announce a singular opportunity for graduate students to participate in an innovative research initiative together with ethnography labs in Montreal (Concordia U.), Los Angeles (USC), Philadelphia (UPenn), and Kelowna in BC (UBC).  Funded by a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, the initiative seeks to explore the ethnographic possibilities of research conducted across a network of labs. 

We are seeking three advanced University of Toronto graduate students to join our Ethnography Lab team. Tasks will include some or all of the following: design, conduct, analyze and disseminate research in collaboration with other Toronto team members; design experiments in multimodal ethnographic research methods and research mobilization; participate in virtual and in-person network meetings, workshops and conferences with students and faculty from other labs; travel to and participation in research conducted at other labs; host student researchers from other labs in Toronto.   

This network initiative will unfold over the course of the next three years, and the pace of project activities will vary over that time; however, the current cohort of students should be available for initial meetings in early October (~6 hrs) and for approximately 50-100 hrs of work between January 2023 and the end of summer 2023.   

Remuneration: To be rated, but we expect it to be $30.00 to 35.00/hour + vacation pay & benefits, in accordance with UofT employment rules. 

Applicants should have experience in designing, conducting, and analyzing ethnographic research; experience in working in more-than-textual media and/or web design a plus; must have the ability to work independently as well as work collaboratively with others. 

Interested applicants should send in a short statement of interest that includes a description of ethnographic research experience, as well as a c.v., to by September 20, 2023.
