CAPE Research Assistantship

CAPE Spring Term Research Assistantship

CAPE Research Asisstantships are designed to give students applied experience with data and analytics related to politics and policy.

During the spring semester, legislative fellows are assigned to work with a political science faculty member to code, organize, and analyze data on projects that are part of the faculty member's research agenda. By the end of the RAship, students should have a basic understanding of how data is collected, how it is managed, and what tools are used for analysis.
