All positions have been filled.

We are looking for up to 4 students to work on the LDI replication project in the Summer of 2016 as undergraduate research interns.

Work description

Team members will access journal websites and analyze the materials provided by article authors on how to replicate the article results. The provided materials and instructions will be assessed using a checklist. The instructions will be followed (if possible), and success or failure to (i) perform the analysis (ii) replicate the authors’ results will be documented. Team work is encouraged, and activity will be supervised by graduate student or faculty member.


Summer 2016 (June 1-August 15, 2016)

Necessary qualifications

Some experience with Stata, SAS, R, Matlab as an undergraduate assistant or in previous work is critical. Having taken one of the CISER workshops, as well as experience with Subversion or Git, are assets.

Presence on campus is not required for the actual work (all computer work will be performed on remotely accessible servers at CISER and ECCO). Weekly attendance of a coordination meeting is required, occasional absences (and participation by videoconference) is acceptable. Work will be coordinated through a Subversion repository. Presence on campus for a final workgroup meeting in August is encouraged but not required (though participation via videoconferencing is required if not physically present).
