Research Associates are the backbone of Project Vote Smart's efforts. Research
Associates will be matched to assignments based on their demonstrated
abilities and in accordance with the shifting needs of a growing, election-
oriented organization. Exceptional applicants may find themselves with
opportunities to help manage and develop programs within months of their start

Requirements: Ideal applicants will have a good understanding of government
and politics, a solid knowledge of current events, experience in researching
political issues, exceptional web searching skills, experience with
normalizing data, and experience with PostgreSQL. Skilled data wranglers or
those that are highly self-motivated, detailed-oriented, committed to self-
improvement, and in possession of a strong work ethic do not need to have
related experience.

All applicants should possess good written and oral communication skills and
be dedicated to the Project's mission of voter education and candidate
accountability. Applicants must be willing to commit through the November 2014
election, though preference may be given to those seeking to build a career
with the Project. The Project Vote Smart pledge, signed by all staff, commits
individuals to absolute impartiality, respect and deference toward all
citizens and professional integrity.
