We are looking for a part-time postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Research in Inclusive Education

The professionals will dedicate themselves to working in the line of Public Value in Education. The deadline to apply is June 30 of this year.

Our Center for Public Systems (CSP) of the Department of Industrial Engineering and The Centre for Research in Inclusive Education (CIEI) is looking for a part-time research fellow to work on two research projects. One project examines school principals’ discriminatory attitudes toward students, while the other studies parental preferences regarding early education institutions.

While working on these projects, the research fellow will work under the supervision of Dr. Pablo González, Principal Investigator of the CIEI’s and with a group of doctoral, postdoctoral, and senior researchers.

The research fellowship consists of $6.000.0000 (Chilean pesos)—before taxes or any other discount (approx. US$7,500), which will be paid on the provision of projects’ deliverables. The fellow will also co-author the publications derived from these two projects, which are expected to be finished by December 2023.

  •  Evidence of quantitative research analysis skills, alongside good programming skills in R and/or Stata.
