THE PROPOSAL-WRITING CONSULTANT/TRAINER is one of four graduate assistants who work directly with fellow graduate students in the GradGrants Center, a graduate student service located in the Wells Library-BL. The Center is sponsored by The University Graduate School and available to enrolled graduate students of all IU campuses. The consultants handle the day-to-day operations of the GradGrants Center and share training responsibilities (e.g. presenting or enlisting speakers for workshops, scheduling rooms, preparing visual aids). Our consultants assist students in their search for external funding sources and are available to work one-on-one with graduate students in discussing and critiquing their grant proposals.
QUALIFICATIONS: Requirements include successful proposal-writing experience, editing skills, teaching experience or experience in planning and presenting special-interest training programs, and the ability and personality to interact well with the public. A one-year commitment to the position is required. Those who have received prior Fulbright awards or other competitive national awards are highly desired. We prefer advanced doctoral students who have at least two years in graduate school.
BENEFITS: This position provides invaluable opportunity to learn about various funding sources and to improve one’s own proposal-writing skills. The experience is extremely valuable to future faculty. The position, starting in late summer or fall 2017, will have a .50% FTE (i.e., 20 hours per week) position and is eligible for student health insurance. The salary will be approximately $15,000 for the academic year. A fee remission for fall and spring is available. In addition, summer funding is also possible. The person hired will work half or all of the summer as arranged with Kim Bunch, Director of Finance and Administration.
The deadline for applications is Monday, April 3, 2017.
