Opportunity Description

The Center for Applied Research on Work (CAROW) is a hub for collaborative applied research efforts across the ILR School and the university. CAROW connects research on work with the practice of putting it to use, providing a platform for new interdisciplinary approaches, innovative methods, and nimble resourcing with the goal of bringing high quality research to bear on the challenges facing today‚Äôs labor markets and connecting that research to external stakeholders and policy makers. Utilizing trainings, convenings, and new tool development CAROW advances the work of faculty and institutes conducting translational labor research and brings them together to drive new insights. 

The research fellow will contribute to work at CAROW including working on the Empire State Poll, a yearly survey of New Yorkers across the state on work, labor, and employment. The research fellow will help analyze survey results from the 2023 survey and think about the 2024 survey formulation, updates, and areas of interest. The Research fellow will also work on identifying new CAROW projects driven by local, state, and national policy needs and new avenues for research (such as new data releases).
