Opportunity Description

We are seeking to hire a motivated undergraduate student for an exciting new study examining the various challenges that home care workers face in both urban and rural areas. Much of the work completed by home care workers goes unacknowledged and unrecognized. This project will focus on challenges that relate to different categories of home care work—personal, emotional, and medical labor, and how these challenges compare across urban and rural regions in New York State. Primary responsibilities for the undergraduate research assistant include compiling sources for a literature review, helping to facilitate interviews, and conducting analysis on interviews.
