The Research Group is intended for talented and ambitious students who are interested in writing theses on global health related topics and those who are majoring in STEM fields and want to challenge themselves to think not just about science, but the ethics, history, and processes of doing science. The Research Group has a strong commitment to teaching inter-disciplinary and social science approaches.

  • Professor David Liebowitz seeks research assistants

Professor David Liebowitz in the department of Educational Methodology, Policy and Leadership is seeking research assistants. His research focuses on the challenges facing schools with concentrations of traditionally under-served students and effective leadership strategies to address these challenges.  He would welcome students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who have an interest in improving schools.  Of greatest interest are students who have some background in social science research, including familiarity with introductory statistics and causal inference and some abilities in statistical programming in Stata or R. However, these skills are not required, and there are projects that could lend themselves well to historical, legal or political economy analyses.  Some of these projects could be ready to begin as early as the summer, though interested students would most likely begin in the fall. Undergraduates would have the opportunity to learn alongside doctoral students and to take undergraduate research credit hours (400-level credits) in the EMPL department, the opportunity to learn research and writing skills, and depending on the student/project, co-authorship of an academic paper.  All students who are motivated and have a substantive interest in education should reach out to Prof. Liebowitz at daviddl@uoregon.edu.
