We are excited to be starting up a new research project here at the Project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy: Scientists in Government:Â An Examination of theirÂ Rights and Responsibilities inÂ Civil Society. Â The goal of this initiative is to provoke and shape the public discussion about the rights and responsibilities of government scientists, as part of the larger effort to ensure that government uses the best science to protect and promote the health and wellbeing of Americans.Â
We are looking for a research associate/qualitative researcher who will lead the process of collecting and analyzing data on the role and functioning of scientists employed by government agencies. Â This personÂ should have experience designing and conducting qualitative research, including the development of interview instruments and analysis.Â The candidate should also have a masters degree in public health, sociology, management, organizational structure, or a related field; 3 â 5 years of direct research experience; and experience in qualitative research design and implementation.
Are you that person or do you know someone who is?
