Arabic Interpreters Needed for Refugee Study

The Memory Project

The Department of Sociology is in need of Arabic interpreters for their study on refugee resettlement in Madison.  Below is their call:

Passionate about the plight of refugees? Wish to learn how resettlement works right here in Madison? Join a team of researchers investigating the refugee resettlement process here in Madison. Tasks will include helping with recruitment, surveying, interviewing, transcribing and coding interviews. We are especially looking for ARABIC INTERPRETERS.

This is a great opportunity to participate in qualitative research. All research personnel (including interns) for this IRB-approved study will be required to complete a few CITI courses, which is a one-time 3 hour commitment (at most) and qualifies the student for other IRB-regulated studies. Moreover, interns will have the chance to enroll in an undergraduate practicum linked to this study next semester and receive internship credit through the Sociology department. Time commitment is very flexible and negotiable.
