To facilitate research on contemporary China at Penn, the CSCC is establishing a database that includes undergraduate and graduate students at the University who have the specialized expertise to assist faculty conducting research relevant to the themes on which the CSCC focuses (political, legal, economic, and social factors shaping China and its role in the world today).
Students who would like to be part of the pool of potential research assistants should send an email to the Center’s Associate Director, Dr. Yuanyuan Zeng <firstname.lastname@example.org>, attaching a resume or CV, along with a brief statement that clearly indicates the skills they could bring to a research project. These skill sets will vary, but might include Chinese language, technical training in particular methods (quantitative analysis, mathematical modeling, relevant computer programs), or distinctive knowledge about contemporary China from coursework or personal experience.
Faculty who have a need for research assistance that requires expertise on contemporary China, should forward requests to <email@example.com>. Research assistance is intended not only for faculty whose research is focused exclusively on China, but also for those conducting research on broader topics and may need assistance with a portion of the research project that focuses on China.
