Stole this off the SEARCHgrads email, where it was posted by Judi Piggott, who used to head up SEARCH. Do note that this is an unpaid call for research contributions; normally I don’t post unpaid opportunities, but it’s an excellent cause, it’s academic publishing (which never pays anyway, except in tenure) and it serves to further the professionalism of the field because it is, after all, research.
