[B]Request for Student Researchers :
The Immigrant Experience in Greater Saint John[/B]

UNB Saint John and Enterprise Saint John are conducting a confidential survey as partofa research project on the immigrant experience in the Saint John area. The main goal ofthe project is to examine why immigrants come to Saint John and how their experiencecan be made more welcoming. The project is funded by the Atlantic Metropolis Centre.

The research team is currently looking for part-time student researchers, who will beexpected to administer a confidential survey of roughly 50 questions on the topic of immigration to the Saint John area. The survey will be administered over the summer of 2009, and will be filled out by immigrants who have come to our city within the last 5 years. Student researchers will collect a consent form as part of the survey.

Student researchers who take part in this project will be motivated, have a strongdesire to learn more about the immigrant experience in Saint John, and be quite willingto find new volunteers to participate in the immigrant study. Good communicationsskillswould be considered an asset. Hourly wage will be between $8-$10 an hour, dependent upon experience. Depending upon availability, student researchers will be asked to work for 10-15 hours a week, for up to 12 weeks. New researchers are needed immediately, and the entire student research team should be in place before Canada Day.

Interested applicants are encouraged to send an electronic copy of their resume to Kurt Peacock, survey co-ordinator, at [B]kpeacock@unbsj.ca[/B]. Applicants are encouraged to answer the question “Why is it important for Saint John to welcome new immigrants?” in their email expressing interest in the position of part-time student researcher.
