Fwd: Experimental design grad student or post doc




Note that theyCanada Revenue Agency is seeking "a strong, independent student who could set up and help analyze a large behavioural experiment”.  Someone with "a very solid understanding of experimental design at a graduate level”.   She also says "they need to be residents or citizens.  They do for sure need security clearance. “

Please contact  Lidia Dobrotescu <Lidia.Dobrotescu@cra-arc.gc.ca> if you are interested in working on a really large experiment with Canada Revenue Agency.

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?
 
Thanks,

Hello Dave and Nancy,
 
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.
