1. Who we are:
We are a medium-sized, cloud-based consultancy headquartered in Delaware, USA but with consultants spread across the globe, from Asia to South America. We primarily handle academic consulting for doctoral-level clients, and we are currently hiring for two positions: Qualitative Methodologist and Quantitative Analyst.
Each position is a strictly work-from-home position, and any applicant should view this as a strong incentive. Please note that hours for these positions are flexible, from part-time (10 hours per week) up to full-time (50-60 hours per week), depending on schedule and preferences.
All applicants will be required to attempt a trial project testing the skills needed to meet the demands of the position they are applying for. All applicants to the same position will receive the same trial project--successful applicants will be paid for the trial project, but unsuccessful applicants will NOT be paid. Please note for the trial project and for all final deliverables, MS Word will be required.
2. Job responsibilities:
2a. Job responsibilities for the Qualitative Methodologist position:
The main responsibility will be to support our clients in their dissertation processes, specifically regarding their qualitative methodologies and analyses:
o Methodological development--Choosing the optimal qualitative methodology to use for a particular study design, such as grounded theory, case study, or phenomenology.
o Qualitative Analysis--Coding qualitative data such as interviews or focus group transcripts, conducting the analysis using qualitative analysis software, and interpreting the results.
We do not provide training or software necessary for the qualitative methodologist position. The applicant should be familiar with at least one of NVivo or ATLAS.ti, and preferably both, as well as have a working full copy of the software that they wish to attempt the trial project with.
2b. Job responsibilities for the Quantitative Analyst position:
The main responsibility will be to support our clients in the statistical phases of their dissertation processes.
All applicants will need to be comfortable designing and drafting a valid statistical methodology (specifying the sample, population, instrumentation, data collection and analysis procedures, etc.), running the analyses using standard stats packages, and drafting and interpreting the results.
All deliverables need to be in a presentable, professional format, and all should adhere to APA guidelines when applicable. Applicants must have a strong applied mathematics or statistics background; proficiency in applied statistics and hypothesis testing is required.
Additionally, applicants must be familiar with common statistical software packages such as SPSS, R, or Stata. As a bonus, applicants experienced in SEM and Path Analysis software like AMOS or Mplus will receive higher pay for those project types.
Finally, all applicants must be extremely comfortable producing academic writing, as this is a central part of the position. We do not provide training or software necessary for the quantitative analyst position. The applicant should be familiar with SPSS (or equivalent software package) and have a working full copy of the software that they wish to attempt the trial project with.
Applicants must possess a meticulous nature and an extremely high attention to detail, as well as excellent command of the English Language.
A bachelor's degree or higher, preferably from a good American university, is required. However, most of our analysts have graduate degrees.
4a. Qualitative Methodologist fees vary by project type and complexity. Typically, those fees range from $400-$900 per project depending on length, difficulty, and timeline. Most of our analysts make between $2,000 and $3,000 monthly on limited, flexible hours. We also have a qualitative analyst position which is focused on general research and writing, and which pays roughly 50% less than the methodologist position, since no software requirement or specialized expertise is needed.
4b. Quantitative Analyst fees vary depending on stats package--whether the work is primarily done in SPSS, or if it requires other software like SAS, Stata, R, AMOS, Mplus, or another program. In the former case, fees range from $100-$300, and in the latter case, fees range from $300-$900. More advanced software is typically required if the project is large and/or complex, requiring more sophisticated statistical methodologies. We do not provide any of the software, and all applicants must have access to their own software to be considered.
