The Student-Scholar Partnership Program - the SSP is an exciting internship for sophomores, juniors and seniors offering educational and real-world experience while benefiting from a supportive mentoring relationship with a Scholar. Students are hired for 50 hours of meaningful work over the course of a semester and are paid $9.00 an hour.
To apply,  please submit your resumeé to the SSP Listings through the Office of Student Employment online site: https://careers.brandeis.edu/studentjobs/. Job ID# are listed next to the title. If chosen to interview, you may need to fill out the SSPP application form and submit a writing sample directly to Kristen Mullin in Epstein at the Women's Studies Research Center. The writing sample can be any length or topic (relevant to project is better).  It needs to show you can take a thought, put it in on paper, and then discuss it clearly and intelligently. Many students have used past graded papers before.

We look forward to hearing from you!

2. Changing Social Policy through the Arts 

(Student Employment Job ID: 524325)

WSRC Scholar Susan Eisenberg – “ON EQUAL TERMS / Perpetual Care”

Description:  My projects combine oral history/witness and the arts to address issues of social policy, both around equal opportunity in the workplace (especially women in the construction and utility industries) and medical humanities (especially relationships between the medical system and people with serious longterm illness). Focus this fall will be around 1) preparations for anticipated spring 2016 exhibition of On Equal Terms mixed-media installation in Chicago; 2) maintaining (adding posts) the Move the Decimal Point blog (susaneisenberg.wordpress.com); 3) launch of a photo/poetry book project on chronic illness; 4) an interview-based nonfiaction book project on women who work as high voltage lineworkers and 5) going through files and documents to prepare 35-years of activism around women in the construction industry for archiving and translating to web format. The focus sometimes shifts abruptly due to outside factors.

3. Creation of a musical performance edition of Dame Ethel Smyth's Mass in D 

(Student Employment Job ID: 524329)

WSRC Scholar Amy LeClair – “Creation of a performance edition of Dame Ethel Smyth’s Mass in D”

Description:  Creating a performance edition in Sibelius of Ethel Smyth’s Mass in D, one of the great larger works by a great woman for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.  This piece is currently only available in manuscript, and under copyright in Europe, however I have received permission to create an edition in the US.  Once a performing edition is created, parts can be extracted and the work can finally be performed as frequently as it should be.
