Freedom Research Institute Fellowship - Summer 2019

YWFC has recently launched the Freedom Research Institute as a collaborative space to decolonize traditional social science research on system-involvement. Our team is dedicated to participatory and community-driven work that centers the voice of formerly incarcerated and system-involved women, girls, and TGNC people. We are seeking four enthusiastic fellows to join us this summer and help us dig into our data and collaborate with analysis. This is an great opportunity for newer researchers to gain experience with data management and analysis. The research fellowship is ideal for early graduate students or senior undergraduates with research experience. Candidates should have some experience with participating in a research project, either with coursework or through employment. Over the 10 weeks, fellows will work directly with quantitative and qualitative data, engage with interdisciplinary research methods, and present findings to the team at the end of the summer. We will hire 2 fellows to work with quantitative data and 2 fellows to work with qualitative data.
