Ministry of Social Development junior researcher

Not actually a volunteer role, but posting it here might get the right person...

Kia ora

We are looking for a junior researcher to work on a project relating to sexual orientation data collection in probability surveys. I would appreciate your help finding suitable candidates.

Key tasks are to prepare an annotated bibliography of selected research literature, contribute to the analysis of statistical data and write up findings.
The person will be provided with support and guidance, and will have the opportunity to participate in conferences and contribute to publications. Ideal would be an emerging researcher who is interested in pursuing work in this area, eg a postgraduate student.

There is some flexibility with time commitments (number of hours and when work done); we envisage at least 100 hours work by completion of the project in July 2009.

We are looking for someone with
- a LGB or queer perspective, with a good understanding of issues relating to sexual orientation
- at least a basic understanding of statistics/quantitative research
- interest in methodological research on sexual orientation data collection
- writing skills

The project is based in Wellington, but applicants in other areas will be considered, as we have some flexibility in our arrangements. At least a week will need to be spent in Wellington, probably sometime between 26 January and 22 February 2009.

Please ask any potentially appropriate person to get in touch with me by November 23rd, with their CV and a brief covering letter addressing the points above.

Thanks very much
Gabi

But the successful applicant may have to stay in Wellington - at least while doing the analysis work.  Could eXctrik bear to leave his beloved Palmy?

Will there be any new Junior Researchers employed in Mr Key's government? Now that could be a quick and effective piece of cost saving right off the bat!
