The Empirical Studies of Conflict Project (ESOC) is seeking applicants for its Pre-Doctoral Fellowship for Data-Driven Research. Participants are hired as predoctoral research specialists on a full-time, benefits-eligible basis for 12-24 months. This program provides an opportunity for recent undergraduates from historically underrepresented groups to gain real-world experience that will prepare them for careers in public service and PhD study in Public Affairs, with a focus on security-related issues.
FDR Fellows will begin with a ten-week analytics boot camp, drawing from online courses for core data processing and visualization skills, research training materials from partnering organizations such as IPA/J-PAL, and Professor Jacob Shapiro’s short course Leading Evidence-Based Decisions for curriculum on how to maximize quantitative evidence. Fellows will then have the opportunity to learn on the job by supporting faculty research projects within SPIA and associated departments. This is a one-year position. Extension may be possible. Applications must be submitted by April 30, 2021. For full consideration, please upload the following documents directly to the Princeton University on-line application portal "Upload Other Documents"
