Subject: RE: Experimental design grad student or post doc

I think we would be looking at someone with a very solid understanding of experimental design at a graduate level. So a postdoc or a near the end of PhD student who wants to design a real – really large experiment. Think all the levels of non-compliance in the tax system and then a rather large study to see how different modes, and messages work – national in scope.
What kind of skills do you need for the position? Can you let me know about the level of background?
Director, Data Science Program Associate Professor, Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science I know getting students at CRA is turning out to be harder in most cases than I thought. But we may have a project that we can do “outside” the box. So, do either of you have a strong, independent student who could set up and help analyze a large behavioral experiment? My colleague Lidia (in the cc) is searching for her director. Many thanks if you have any names –they need to be residents or citizens. They do for sure need security clearance.
