The Public Policy (Public Policy scholarships) Group and the Immigration Policy Lab (IPL) at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences, ETH Zurich, are looking for a Research Assistant in Quantitative Social Science.

This position is part of a collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on a project that develops a measurement tool to support successful migrant integration in Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Peru.

Your task will be to support IOM in the development of a survey-based tool that captures migrant integration and collaborate with IOM throughout the conceptualization, pilot testing and implementation of the tool. In particular, you will assist in consolidating existing literature and in designing sampling strategies to test the validity of the tool. Furthermore, your task will be to conduct data analyses and write reports based on the statistical findings of the pilot tests. As part of a larger project team, you will be closely involved in monitoring and supporting the implementing IOM missions in Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Peru throughout the pilot testing phase.

Research experience in the area of migration and social science methods, as well as flexibility with regard to working hours are a plus.
