Consortium Research Fellows Program
ARI-FSRU Graduate Research Fellowship
Research Fellowships: Graduate Student Research Fellowships are available with the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI).
Location: Students will work according to a hybrid system of remote and office locations. Starting in Summer 2023, most work will be performed in ARI’s office at Fort Belvoir, VA. As such, priority will be given to candidates who reside in the Washington DC area.
Wage: The hourly wage ranges from $18.00 to $32.00 and is determined by the graduate student’s academic standing and program of study. Graduate students interested in these fellowships will be expected to work up to but no more than 20-30 hours per week and have the option of working 40 hours per week during summer.
Research Support: The Foundational Science Research Unit (FSRU) conducts applied research on team effectiveness and houses ARI’s Basic Research Program. Students on the Applied Team will assist with projects related to team effectiveness, to include identification of predictors of team effectiveness, improving understanding of the criterion space, and examining contextual factors that impact team composition frameworks. Students on the Basic Research Team will assist with projects related to one of four strategic focus areas for advancing science: 1) Science of Measurement of Individuals and Collectives; 2) Understanding Multilevel and Organizational Dynamics; 3) Formal/Informal Learning and Development; and 4) Context of Behavior in Military Environments. Projects on both teams will be both quantitative and qualitative in nature. Additional tasks may include assisting with unit-level activities such as theoretical development, literature reviews, data collection, data analysis, and reporting (to include writing conference submissions, technical reports, and peer-reviewed publications).
Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have the ability to contribute to longitudinal and multilevel research projects through theoretical development, design of research projects, and analysis of complicated datasets. Basic data analysis skills (GLM procedures) are required, and advanced data analysis skills (HLM, SEM) are highly encouraged. Writing skills are also highly valued in candidates.
Qualified candidates should also have:
• Working knowledge of Microsoft Office programs (e.g., Word, Excel, and PowerPoint)
• Experience and skill performing literature reviews
• Good oral/written communication skills
• Good teamwork skills
• Attention to detail
Prior knowledge of the Army is not a requirement for candidates interested in a Fellowship. Some travel will be required as part of the Fellowship. Qualified candidates must be U.S. citizens, must complete a security background check, and must obtain and maintain a Federal Government Common Access Card.
