Strong quantitative and writing skills are essential, as is the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team. The funding is expected to lead to multiple publications a year in areas relevant to the research conducted in the social action lab ( Manuscripts led by the researcher can be based on existing data from the lab, or data collected by the researcher in areas of common interest, as long as a high level of productivity is sustained. The researchers are also expected to contribute to the writing of applications for Federal funding. Positions may be renewed up to 6 years with satisfactory performance. Applications are being accepted immediately and will be reviewed until the position is filled, at which point the ad will be removed.
