CLACLS Latino Data Project – Call for Applications (deadline 12/1)
The Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies is pleased to offer three Latino Data Project (LDP) Fellowships for the 2020‐2021 Academic Year in the amount of $5,000 each. All Fellows will be expected to work approximately 2‐4 hours per week during the rest of the Fall and the Spring semesters (strictly virtual). The Fellows must be currently enrolled full-time students at the Graduate Center.
The primary responsibilities will be to produce a Latino Data Project report along with other duties as requested by the Director of Research. Sophisticated proficiency of SPSS and Excel is required, as well as experience working independently with quantitative data analysis. Selected candidates need to be able to work with this software remotely, which will likely require access to a PC. Proficiency in data mapping software will be given special consideration. Previous experience in conducting quantitative research on Latin America and/or Latino issues is highly desirable.
Interested candidates should submit the following in one PDF file in the following order:
- A 1-page, single spaced, cover letter (including name, department of study, academic level, email address, and brief description of SPSS proficiency and experience working with quantitative data)
- Academic CV (3 pages max)
- A research/writing sample, in which the candidate is the first, if not sole, author. This sample must demonstrate the candidate’s skills in both quantitative data analysis and written communication.
Please submit applications and/or any inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due no later than November 4th at 5:00 pm, with interviews with selected candidates being carried out between November 11th and 13th. The starting date for the fellowship will begin after candidates have been notified and paperwork processed but no later than December 1, 2020.
