Field Institute Faculty Fellowship Program
The California State University's Social Science Research and Instructional Council (SSRIC) is issuing a new RFP for the Field Institute Faculty Fellowship program. The Field Institute is part of the Field Research Corporation, a general practice market and opinion research agency.
The Field Faculty Fellowship program offers CSU faculty the opportunity to place twelve questions on a Field Poll.
The faculty member will take part in a research project on a topic approved by the Institute's management. The faculty member will participate with staff in the development of the survey questionnaire and will take lead responsibility in the analysis and preparation of a report which may be issued under the Institute's name. All field work will be provided by the Institute. The faculty member may also use the data for publications of his or her own. Research topics selected should be of interest to policy makers of California, be relevant for responses of an adult cross-section, and be appropriate for the interviewing methods used in the Institute's studies.
Fellows will be provided necessary services by The Field Institute.
Proposals should include a description of the type of project you would like to undertake, a review of the relevant literature including a bibliography, the questions you would like to include in the Field Poll, your plans for the analysis of the data, and a discussion of your qualifications. The Field Institute is only committed to including twelve questions for the Field Faculty Fellowship program. Field counts each response from the respondent as a separate question. For example, if you have five parts to a question that ask the respondent whether they agree or disagree with five different statements, each of these is counted as a separate question. Include a copy of your resume. Proposals should be submitted electronically to Dr. Edward Nelson at .
Deadline for receiving proposals is April 15, 2013. Each proposal will be anonymously reviewed and the faculty member notified of the outcome by mid- to late-May.
If you have any questions about the program or the application process, contact your local SSRIC representative or call Edward Nelson, 559-278-2275 or send email to .
