Six Graduate/Student Positions Open at ICN

ICN is seeking to hire 6 graduate or undergraduate positions in areas of Web Development, Instructional Design, & Computer Tech Support.

The Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) is seeking to hire 6 graduate student, including paid tuition, or undergraduate student positions to fill needs throughout the Information Services Division of ICN.

ICN operates within the School of Applied Sciences at The University of Mississippi, and is the only federally funded national center dedicated to applied research, education and training, and technical assistance to promote the continuous improvement of child nutrition programs.

The Information Services Division is responsible for all operational technology aspects of the Institute. The scope and growth of Information Service responsibilities has created several opportunities for high-level graduate students and undergraduate students to assist the Institute. These areas include:

  • Web Development (CPanel, WHM, WordPress Multi Site, JavaScript/jQuery, Responsive/Mobile Design, MySQL/Gravity Forms, app integration, etc.)
  • Instructional Technology Development (Development of eLearning Documents, Courses, Troubleshooting Course Issues, Helpdesk for Adult Learners, etc.)
  • Computer Technical Support (Microsoft Active Directory domain environment, domain/file/Exchange/IIS/VPN services, with a mixed environment of Windows 7/10, Mac, and mobile systems, Helpdesk)

These positions will be interacting on a daily basis with highly accomplished staff, working on projects with a national scope, and it is possible, if not probable, that they will be interacting directly with ICN customers. As such, it is important that these students have an understanding of operating within a professional environment and strong communication and interpersonal skills.

This advertisement is targeted to academic programs and departments aligned with the educational background of the positions described above, but it is not limited to students in these programs and departments. In consultation with the university Graduate School, ICN was encouraged to reach out to the respective department graduate program coordinators (GPCs), directly, to “advertise” the availability of these opportunities, and that the process may vary from department to department. Other non-academic departments that have students and faculty that may be interested in these opportunities are welcomed to inquire or forward to potentially interested parties.

If you have questions or concerns about this advertisement or opportunities, please direct all inquiries to Ginger Gregory, All completed applications and associated documentation for consideration of these positions should be sent to We appreciate all interest.

Thank you,
