Potential APE – Spanish Language Translator Opportunity

Potential APE – Spanish Language Translator Opportunity

Apply before today’s deadline!

We are seeking 1-2 undergraduate, MPH, or doctoral-level candidates fluent in Spanish to serve as Spanish-language translators during a one week-long Emory-sponsored field study this summer in Valdosta, Georgia. This is a unique, paid opportunity to work with a team of researchers on-site in Valdosta (June 16 through June 23rd) with migrant and seasonal farmworkers on an infectious disease project in partnership with the Emory Farmworker Project mobile clinics. 

Transportation to and from Valdosta from Atlanta, transportation in and around Valdosta, lodging, meals, and time ($15/hour) will be compensated. The successful candidate must be fluent in Spanish and English, be fully available from Friday, June 16th through Friday, June 23rd, have excellent communication skills, and be able to contribute to a positive team dynamic. Additional training on the consenting process, records documentation, and review of logistics prep and workflow will be completed on Emory Campus prior to arrival in Valdosta. Experience conducting human-subjects research, working with underserved populations, and/or an interest in environmental health/exposure science/infectious disease is a bonus. If applicable, this opportunity can be considered an Applied Practice Experience (APE) or Practicum. 

To apply, email your cover letter and resume to Dr. Julia Sobolik at jsoboli [at] emory [dot] edu by Monday June 5th (close of business). If you have questions or would like additional information, feel free to contact Dr. Sobolik via email.
