Are you interested in learning more about the research process? Do you have 2-5 hours per week to work closely with a member of the faculty? A variety of projects are scheduled for this semester and we would love to work with you. If you are curious, take a look at the descriptions of the research projects currently running in the Management Department that have open spots.

- Antecedents and Consequences of Compounded Corporate Misconduct
Description: In this project we are studying the antecedents and consequences of multiple instances of corporate misconduct by the same firm. Past research tends to examine each instance of corporate misconduct individually. We are interested in firms that are repeat offenders and those that engage in different types of misconduct. The research assistant’s role will vary based on their skillset and availability, but may include using Newman Library databases such as Factiva, COMPUSTAT and Audit Analytics, coding data, and creating visualizations. Ideally, the research assistant(s) would be available 2-5 hours per week, although this is flexible.
Desired Skills: Students who are interested in this opportunity and would like to discuss it further should be intrigued by corporate misconduct, conscientious, and comfortable with Excel.

To employ computer driven textual analysis of Fortune Global 500 firms, a student will collect and curate text from their CSR reports. This is a paid position for about 5-10 hours a week. The work can be done remotely. Familiarity with R statistical software package is a plus.
