The Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School seeks Postdoctoral Fellow

The Justice Collaboratory brings together scholars and researchers of diverse theoretical and methodological orientations at Yale University and elsewhere to work on issues related to institutional reform and policy innovation and advancement. It infuses theory, empirical research, and targeted clinical trials in order to achieve its goal of making the components of criminal justice operation simultaneously more effective, just, and democratic.

The Collaboratory seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow, who will assist us with a research project that examines community-level perceptions of procedural justice—as applied not just to policing, but to the criminal justice system at large—and measures the effects of those perceptions on a range of outcomes. This is a one-year position with a start date of September 1, 2016 (or as soon as possible thereafter). Renewal for a second year is possible and will depend upon the mutual agreement of the fellow and the Collaboratory faculty directors.

Key Job Responsibilities:
• Participate in the design and execution of a survey of 2,500 residents of a large American city.
• Assist in the design and execution of follow-up qualitative interviews of a subset of those surveyed.
• Assist in analyzing results and drafting articles that describe findings for the scholarly and popular press.

• A PhD in psychology, sociology, criminology, or a related field.
• Experience with relevant research methodologies, particularly including survey-
based interviewing.
• A demonstrated capacity to work in an interdisciplinary fashion.
• Excellent written communication skills.
• A demonstrated interest in criminal justice issues and the theoretical and
methodological orientations of the Collaboratory.

Salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience.

To Apply:
Please send a copy of your CV, a cover letter explaining your interest in the position, and copies of one or two papers or presentations that highlight your research abilities.

Send materials to Megan Quattlebaum, Program Director, Justice Collaboratory, Yale Law School, 127 Wall Street, New Haven, CT 06511. No phone calls please.
