CREATING LEADERS FOR INFORMED AND CIVIL DISCOURSE ON RELIGION

Fellowships & Employment

The Religion and Public Life Program hires undergraduate research fellows on an ongoing basis. This is an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to learn about and contribute to large-scale social scientific research related to religion, science, race, gender, inequality, and other topics. Fellows work under the supervision of Dr. Elaine Howard Ecklund, Herbert S. Autrey Chair in Social Sciences, Professor of Sociology, RPLP Director, and Rice Scholar (Baker Institute).

While working with the RPLP, fellows assist with data collection, analysis, and research administration related to sociological projects. Fellows contribute to and participate in weekly RPLP team meetings and RPLP events, where they have an opportunity to engage with a wide variety of guests and scholars. Fellows additionally transcribe and edit interview data, support article and book writing efforts, and engage in qualitative data analysis projects.
