2. Position: Research Analyst

Project: CUNY Institute For State And Local Gover

Posting Date: August 20, 2015

General Description

ISLG is a newly-created institute within the City University of New York. The Institute’s mission is to assist current and future leaders in government, non-profit organizations and the private sector, in the U.S. and internationally, by offering research, technical assistance, and education and training, to help achieve improvements in the financing, delivery and measurement of critical public services. For more information, visit:

Position Description

ISLG seeks a research analyst (RA) to carry out research, analysis, and performance measurement work in support of a national jail reform initiative, funded by the MacArthur Foundation, to combat the overuse and misuse of jails in the U.S. To do this, the Foundation will fund a group of jurisdictions—selected through a competitive application process—to identify and implement strategies for reducing their local jail populations, with the initiative unfolding in two phases. During the first phase, grantees will assess the primary drivers of their jail population, identify key areas and strategies for reform, and develop a plan for implementing those strategies. In the second phase of the work, in turn, a smaller number of jurisdictions will be selected from the initial pool to receive on-the-ground support in implementing their plans. To help guide the work in both phases, each jurisdiction will receive intensive support and technical assistance (TA) from one of four site coordinators selected by the Foundation for their expertise in criminal justice reform.

Throughout both phases of the initiative, ISLG will be responsible for informing and/or tracking the development, implementation, and progress of reform activities in each of the selected jurisdictions through rigorous data collection and analysis. Specifically, we will be collecting and analyzing data to: 1) inform the selection of sites at each phase of the work; 2) help determine the drivers of jail populations, areas of focus for reform efforts, and specific jail population reduction strategies in each of the selected jurisdictions; 3) develop performance indicators to measure progress both locally and across all sites (including developing baselines and targets for each site and assessing movement toward targets); 4) inform the TA efforts of site coordinators at all stages of the work, including helping them develop initial strategies at the start of the work, and providing feedback on which activities have been most and least effective over time; and 5) support an impact evaluation of the initiative that will be conducted by an external evaluator (and will include analysis to explore why targets were or were not achieved). Data collection and indicator development will begin as soon as the first round of winners is selected in May 2015, and will intensify during the second phase of the work when the pool of sites becomes smaller.
With these objectives in mind, the RA will be responsible for supporting a Senior Associate in the following tasks: 1)Developing and tracking performance measures related to site goals, objectives, and strategies over time; 2) Developing data requests; 3) Collecting administrative data from multiple agencies (e.g., police, prosecutor’s office, courts, jails) in each site; 4) Cleaning, merging, and coding data files received from various sites; 5) Conducting quantitative analyses of site-specific data; 6) Drafting quarterly reports on site performance and other project-specific deliverables; 7)Traveling to sites on a regular basis; and 8) Performing necessary administrative functions.
While the RA will work closely with a Senior Associate, he/she will report to the Senior Research Scientist overseeing the jail reform project.
This is an exceptional opportunity to help shape a portfolio of performance measurement and evaluation in a newly-established Institute, and to contribute to building a talented and ambitious team of researchers and policy makers working to establish a scientifically rigorous yet impactful body of work.

Other Duties


1) BA or MA in sociology, psychology, criminal justice/criminology, public health, social work, or related social science field (MA is preferred);2) Experience conducting research in an applied research setting, OR prior coursework in research methods and/or statistics3) Proficiency in statistical software packages, including SPSS, SAS or STATA—including experience cleaning, coding, merging, and analyzing quantitative data files in such packages;4) An exceptional commitment to accuracy and attention to detail; 5) Microsoft Office proficiency, particularly in Excel and PowerPoint; 6) Excellent time management skills and experience working in deadline-driven environments; 7) Ability to write and present in an articulate, structured, and compelling manner; 8) Ability to work on a team, as well as independently; 9) Willingness to travel
