UReCA is the national Web journal of undergraduate research and creative activity, sponsored by the National Collegiate Honors Council. We strive to further the exchange of scientific and creative work between undergraduate students by providing a platform where students can contribute to their academic community. Here is a link to the site: http://www.nchc-ureca.com/.
We are looking to recruit fifteen new Associate Editors with diverse academic backgrounds from universities across the United States. Associate Editors are responsible for the selection of creative work and research articles that will appear on the website. Additionally, Associate Editors provide feedback and revision suggestions to authors of the selected pieces.
The selection of editors for UReCA is a competitive process. Applications should consist of the following:
· Resume (please only include academic activities or relevant work experience)
· Statement of interest (single page)
· A letter of approval from your Honors Director committing to send you to the NCHC conference. This is not a full letter of recommendation but rather a letter of affirmation and support. The letter can be uploaded by the student through Submittable or emailed by the faculty member to email@example.com.
In order to apply, students must be pursuing their undergraduate degrees and be enrolled in an honors program or college that is a member of NCHC.
The deadline for application is January 31st, 2019. All applications will be handled through our submissions manager: https://ureca.submittable.com/submit
Selected editors will meet at a four-day summer editing bootcamp at Bryce Canyon, Utah, to discuss operation of the journal and selection standards. This trip is funded by NCHC and will occur in early June. You need to be able to attend in order to apply.
