Research Assistantship Opportunity with CUNY Institute for State and Local Governance

The Institute is hiring a team of Research Assistants to provide support for a research project on police practices in New York City, which ISLG is conducting for the federal judge and court-appointed Monitor overseeing the remedial process of stop-and-frisk class action litigation. The project involves conducting systematic social observations (SSOs) of New York Police Department (NYPD) encounters with citizens; coding body-worn camera (BWC) footage of a subset of NYPD shifts and encounters; and analyzing these and other sources of data. It will be carried out in close collaboration with the NYPD, a larger evaluation team, and other City stakeholders. Research Assistants are expected to work from approximately late March 2020 through the summer of 2020. The majority of the work will be completed over the summer months. There will be an opportunity to continue working on the project in the fall of 2020.
