I am looking for someone to help with an essay collection (the title piece just got picked up for Best American Essays) that is due in October. I’m looking for someone who can help for a few hours a week with research and organization of the research. The book is about healthcare in the US and how we treat patients, so anyone who is interested in doing research about science, particularly how we treat patients, would be ideal, as well as help with organizing folders/PDFs in dropbox, etc. I also need to update my website and will be sending out one newsletter update to those on the mailing list. I am flexible with timing and meeting and that kind of thing. I have had help of this type before and enjoy mentoring students (I currently mentor grad students at Pitt in my spare time).
