Project on the Study of Innovation and Technology in China (SITC)

The Position: Graduate student researcher positions with our SITC project are approximately 10 hours/week through the winter quarter, with the possibility of continued work through the spring quarter and the summer depending on job performance. This opportunity is open to UCSD graduate students who have native or near-native comprehension of written Chinese. As a graduate student researcher for SITC, the majority of your time will be conducting research, collecting data, and entering data into our in-house database. In addition to this database work, you will be assigned other research tasks, as time permits. Students who do not have the required Chinese language skills but are interested in conducting research on issues related to Chinese science, technology, and innovation policy can also attend, as there may be other research opportunities available. We may also have limited opportunities for advanced undergraduate students who are fluent in Chinese.

An Informational meeting for students interested in research positions with SITC will be held on Wednesday, November 7 at 3:30 pm in the IR/PS Dean’s Conference Room. Please RSVP to Heidi Serochi (; 858-534-8602) and bring a copy of your resume or CV. 

Location: IGCC’s main office is in the Robinson Complex (room 1230) on the UCSD campus near IR/PS. Most offices for the SITC program are located in the San Diego Super Computer Center. In most cases, we allow our graduate student researchers to do their work from home, on their own schedule.
