Seeking graduate student for summer research opportunity (Montreal)

Eugene Raikhel (Comparative Human Development, UChicago) and Stephanie Lloyd (Anthropology/Psychiatry, Laval U/McGill U) are seeking a graduate student to carry out ethnographic and archival research on a Montreal-based brain bank. The position is part of a broader research project examining the ways in which concepts of suicidal risk are being reframed by research in neuroscience and epigenetics. Applicants should be familiar with qualitative research methods in the social sciences, and ideally have a background in medical anthropology, medical sociology, science and technology studies, or the history of science and medicine. Research will be carried out over the course of eight to twelve weeks between June and September 2014, and will be based in Montreal, QC. Fluency in French is preferable. This is a paid position. This project would be particularly appropriate as the basis for a Master’s thesis or its equivalent.

Please contact Eugene Raikhel (eraikhel@uchicago.edu) if interested.
