Applicant must have demonstrated analytic skills and an ability to develop funding for her/his own research interests. Direct experience with large-scale probability sample survey projects is essential. In collaboration with the Department of Sociology, CSR recently launched a Masters’ Level Certificate Program in Survey Methodology, so an interest and experience in teaching survey research methods is desirable.
