With support from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Executive Approval Project is excited to find a recent Ph.D. graduate to work with us. The details of the position are below. For further information, contact Ryan Carlin at Georgia State University (where the post-doc is located), email@example.com.
Position: Post-Doctoral Research Associate, Department of Political Science, Georgia State University
Description: We seek a post-doctoral research associate to join the project, “Collaborative Research: Public Support in Challenging Times: Varieties of Crises, Elite Responses, and Executive Approval,” (National Science Foundation SES and Build and Broaden) recently awarded to PIs of the Executive Approval Project (EAP).
Main duties involve measuring elite messaging surrounding crises (economic, security, health, natural disaster) across 18 countries. This entails identifying appropriate corpuses and employing web-scraping and machine-learning techniques to extract dimensions of theoretical interest. Other data collection tasks related to the project will be required, as needed. A pedagogical element of this position involves the mentorship and training of a diverse group of PhD, MA, and BA students in the Pollitik Lab who are also funded through the grant.
The post-doctoral research associate will work under the supervision of PI Ryan Carlin at Georgia State University and will collaborate in the production, presentation, and publication of project findings with him and grant co-PIs, Jonathan Hartlyn and Cecilia Martínez-Gallardo (UNC-Chapel Hill), Timothy Hellwig (Indiana U.), Gregory Love (U. of Mississippi), and Matthew Singer (UConn). Co-authorship of research publications related to the project is expected. Project duties will allow the post-doctoral research associate time to advance his or her own projects, as well.
Requirements: PhD in hand at the time of hiring, preferably in Political Science, Computer Science, or related fields. Skills required for this position include programming in R/Stata, familiarity with text-as-data techniques, and a commitment to working with a diverse group of faculty and students; experience with time-series modeling, web-scraping, Python, and multilingualism are desirable but not required.
Compensation: This is a 2-year position. In each year it offers a 12-month contract. Start date is flexible and can be as early as July 1, 2022; the position ends June 30, 2024. During this period, compensation includes salary of $60,000/year, plus $1200 in conference support/year, and benefits. There will also be opportunities to develop independent research during this period.
Timeline: Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, and three reference letters. In addition to describing the candidate’s scholarship and demonstrated skills, cover letters should describe experience with and/or commitment to mentorship, training, and/or teaching diverse populations. Application materials and reference letters should be sent to Ryan Carlin at firstname.lastname@example.org, with “POST-DOC APPLICATION/REFERENCE [APPLICANT LAST NAME]” in the email subject line.
Review of applications will begin on February 1, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
All inquiries should be directed to Ryan Carlin (email@example.com). Interviews will be conducted virtually or, if convenient, in person at the SPSA and/or MPSA meetings.
