The Postdoctoral Research Associate will support an NSF-funded project to study the diffusion of gender equity ideas through university and scholarly networks. This mixed-methods project will analyze the spread and growth of ideas for organizational change to promote gender equity in STEM fields, seeded through the NSF ADVANCE program. The research associate will join an interdisciplinary team led by Professors Liza Weinstein and Kathrin Zippel in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and Assistant Professor Laura K. Nelson in the Department of Sociology at the University of British Columbia Vancouver and will include other collaborators including postdoctoral researchers from social, network, and computer science.

We expect that the research associate will play a leading role in the analysis of quantitative data, including relational, bibliometric, and text data, and/or the analysis of qualitative data (interviews). The research associate will help author reports, papers and journal articles including visualizations using project data; and help coordinate tasks across the research team.

This is a one-year, full-time, benefits-eligible position with option of renewal based on performance. Start date will be Summer or Fall 2022. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
