The Digital Scholarship Internship Program (DSIP) at the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) is a paid training program for Emory Graduate Students from any department or academic discipline. Graduate student workers should expect to work approximately 5-10 hours per week at the ECDS, and will be paid at a starting rate of $15.00/hour.
The Digital Scholarship Training Program presents an uncommon opportunity for graduate students to learn digital scholarship skills, theories, and methods relating to research and pedagogy. Students selected for the program work regular shifts at the center, helping faculty, staff, and students with digital research and pedagogy-related questions.
