Research Specialist II Position with FFCWS

Tuesday, Nov 3, 2020

The Center for Research on Child Wellbeing (CRCW) at Princeton University is seeking a Research Specialist II to provide data management, statistical analysis, and operational support for the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS).  This position will have a significant role in data quality assurance and programming for the current Year 22 wave of data collection, developing new supplemental administrative data files to append to data in the FFCWS archive, and providing technical data support and outreach for FFCWS. This position will support Principal Investigators and collaborators, project staff, and external researchers and students using the FFCWS data.

The ideal applicant will have strong programming skills (Stata preferred), with the ability to help manage, support, and expand a large archive of highly-sensitive data from this prominent NIH-funded longitudinal study.   The successful candidate will be a self-starter and able to manage projects independently. The Research Specialist II will be required to develop a deep understanding of FFCWS survey data files, efficiently code Stata programs, and quality check data files using a meticulous attention to detail.  The Research Specialist II is expected to provide technical support to researchers with clear and concise written and verbal explanations.  They should be able to thrive in a flexible, team based work environment, and be committed to continued learning and training in areas such as data management and statistical analysis.
