Notre Dame's Kroc Institute seeks Research Associate on Peace Accords

The University of Notre Dame's Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies seeks applications for a postdoctoral research associate for the Peace Accords Matrix project. The Peace Accords Matrix is an effort to analyze and compare all recent comprehensive peace accords and data on their implementation in a manner useful to scholars, policymakers, and peacebuilding practitioners.

As the project moves into the next phase, we seek a scholar with expertise in peace processes and experience in quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis. The candidate should have a strong background in research methods. The successful candidate will be involved in all aspects of data collection for the project, including locating and evaluating data sources, overseeing coding of data by research assistants, coordinating review of data by scholars and regional experts, and establishing a system for updating the database on an ongoing basis. Drawing on the data collected, the successful candidate will use the database to produce individual and joint policy briefing papers for policymakers and peace practitioners. The successful candidate is also expected to utilize the database/dataset to publish research articles in peer reviewed journals.

The researcher associate will work closely with Prof. Madhav Joshi and Prof. John Darby, the Associate Director and Director of the project, respectively. 

The position is based at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. This is a contract position initially for a one year period; the contract will be renewable for subsequent years based on performance.  Applicants must have a Ph.D. in sociology, political science, peace studies, or another relevant discipline; expertise in peace processes and peace accords; and a demonstrated ability to manage a database with both qualitative and quantitative dimensions.

To apply, please submit a CV, cover letter detailing experience on data collection and management, writing sample, and three letters of reference to:
