The Empirical Reasoning Lab in the Barnard Library seeks a new cohort of Empirical Reasoning Fellows for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The Empirical Reasoning Fellows will help students during walk-in lab hours, assist in the development of the lab's resources, and potentially be assigned to specific courses for class support. Duties include support for the design of empirical projects and surveys, for statistics and analysis techniques, and for software including, but not limited to Excel, STATA, SPSS, and/or Arc-GIS. Other duties include maintaining assessment records, developing and maintaining online resources, and other aspects of programmatic support as assigned. Some experience with Excel and either STATA, SPSS, or Arc-GIS is required, although additional training will be provided.

Fellows will be employed during Summer sessions I & II at 35 hours/week during which they will receive additional training and hands on research experience. Fellows will then work during the academic year at 10 hrs/week.

The ideal candidate will be detail oriented, have a strong work ethic, excellent quantitative and communication skills, and be comfortable thinking critically about data. We need a minimum 1 year commitment. Rising juniors are encouraged to apply. Participation during the summer is required for employment during the academic year.

Please send a cover letter, CV/résumé, an unofficial transcript, and the name of at least one faculty person who could speak strongly about your analytical skills to Heather Van Volkinburg, Associate Director of Learning Initiatives & Data Services at hvanvolk [at] barnard.edu. Please feel free to reach out with any questions regarding this position.
