Associate in Research-Writer

The Duke University Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity (Cook Center) is seeking an associate in research to develop and write stories, articles and reports related to the research and education activities of the center.

The Cook Center is an interdisciplinary scholarly collaborative engaged in the study of the causes and consequences of inequality and in the assessment and redesign of remedies for inequality and its adverse effects. Concerned with the economic, political, social and cultural dimensions of uneven and inequitable access to resources, opportunity and capabilities, Cook Center researchers take a cross-national comparative approach to the study of human difference and disparity. Ranging from the global to the local, Cook Center scholars not only address the overarching social problem of general inequality, but they also explore social problems at the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity and religious affiliation.
