D-Lab is seeking a new graduate student team member to implement our qualitative data analysis vision for a spectrum of services, including workshops, consulting and the Qualitative Methods Group (QMG). This team member will: recruit workshop instructors and consultants, lead selected trainings, coordinate QMG and its organizing board and assist in the development of workshop series, monitor user analytics to ensure that we are meeting students’ needs, and work other staff members to identify and develop cross-domain events or workshops.  At D-Lab, you will have the opportunity to develop leadership while working collaboratively with other students and staff.

If you feel inspired to help fellow researchers and students learn about and work with research methods and tools, we're interested in hiring you. The D-Lab supports quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research at each stage of the process—from research design to data analysis. We have an open, inclusive culture that values diversity and open exchange.  We believe that diversity enhances learning and improves organizational performance. We welcome applications from underrepresented minorities.

Position Details:

This position will begin in Spring 2016. The position will be compensated at $23.51/hour, without fee remission, for 2-5 hours weekly during the semester. This period will include an orientation and training period to allow the current Qualitative Data Analysis Lead to “hand-off” responsibilities to you. The position will continue through academic year 2016-17, as a 50% GSR position with fee remission.

Please do not apply unless you can continue through both the Fall of 2016 and the Spring of 2017.

Position Requirements:

  • Positive attitude and a commitment to the D-Lab mission!
  • Strong commitment to and broad experience with qualitative methods  (e.g., participant observation, ethnography, interviewing, archival research)
  • Experience with one or more QDA packages (e.g., Atlas.TI, NVivo, Dedoose, MaxQDA)
