The Duke University Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity (Cook Center) is seeking an associate in research-data manager. The data manger will oversee collection on topic areas related to COVID-19, mortality, and populations in carceral settings. This is a grant-funded position.

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.
