Job Details



Research and Data Analyst
University of California Los Angeles



Requisition Number: 33832
Salary: $5,167 - $13,233 monthly

Position Description:
The Research and Data Analyst will play a critical role in advancing the mission of the Williams Institute to conduct rigorous, independent research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy. Despite advances, LGBTQ people remain vulnerable to criminalization, violence, and discrimination in the United States and around the world. Domestically, most states have had laws that make having HIV, Hepatitis, or other diseases a crime. In the past five years, Williams Institute research has revealed the dramatic impact these laws have had on thousands of people, primarily BIPOC, LGBTQ people, and sex workers, with no measurable benefit to addressing the epidemic and a number of indications that such laws undermine public health objectives. The Williams Institute has recently received funding for the next two years to do similar studies for additional states, and to develop trainings related to this research for key stakeholders in the criminal justice system.

Globally, homosexuality remains criminalized in 69 countries, and in many more LGBTQ people face discrimination impacting critical access to education, healthcare, employment, and justice. The Williams Institute's international program produces innovative cross-national research on LGBTQ people's lived experiences with such stigma and discrimination. Through collaborative research projects, technical assistance, and trainings, the Williams Institute also works to strengthen the research and data collection capacity of LGBTQ stakeholders outside the United States. The Institute's international program is seeking to strengthen and expand its activities in both research and capacity-building.

The Research and Data Analyst will play a critical role in advancing both the HIV Criminalization project and the Institute's international programs, with time and responsibilities equally divided between the two. For the HIV Criminalization project, the Research and Data Analyst will partner with Williams Institute scholars in conducting public policy and social science research related to the criminalization of HIV, Hepatitis, and other diseases. For the international programs, the Research and Data Analyst will assist Williams Institute scholars in conducting public policy and social science research related to international LGBTQ human rights and development. Primary responsibilities include: data cleaning; quantitative data analysis; write-up of methods and results; drafting written products (literature reviews, reports, manuscripts, grant proposals, fact sheets, graphics, presentations, etc.); manage project timelines and development (including trainings); develop research protocols, study materials, and IRB applications alongside the Director; and maintain tasks related to project administration (e.g. processing invoices). Participation in Institute meetings, seminars, educational events, and other meetings, as determined by the research supervisor, is required. This is a grant funded position that is renewable in one-year terms, but will not exceed four years.
