TIER Faculty Fellowships 2015-16

Richard Ball, Associate Professor of Economics, and Norm Medeiros, Associate Librarian, of Haverford College, are co-principal investigators of Project TIER. They are seeking the first class of TIER Fellows to promote and extend teaching of transparent and reproducible empirical research methods.


Project TIER (Teaching Integrity in Empirical Research) is an initiative that promotes training in open and transparent methods of quantitative research in the undergraduate and graduate curricula across all the social sciences.

The Project anticipates awarding three or four TIER Faculty Fellowships for the 2015-16 academic year. Fellows will collaborate with TIER leadership and work independently to develop and disseminate transparent research methods that are suitable for adoption by students writing theses, dissertations or other supervised papers, or that can be incorporated into classes in which students conduct quantitative research.

The period of the Fellowships will be from June 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016. Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $5,000.

Applications are due April 19, 2015. Early inquiries and expressions of interest are encouraged. To learn more and apply, visit http://www.haverford.edu/TIER/opportunities/fellowships_2015-16.php.
