Project TIER Call for Applications

Project TIER, an international community of scholars working on changing norms of research practice to promote transparency and reproducibility of empirical research in the social sciences, will award three or four faculty fellowships for the 2019-20 academic year. Their mission statement states that they are "guided by the principle that providing comprehensive replication documentation for research involving statistical data should be as ubiquitous and routine as providing a list of references."

Call for Applications

We anticipate awarding three or four TIER Faculty Fellowships for the 2019-20 academic year. This will be the fifth year of an annual program in which Fellows collaborate with us to develop tools and curriculum for teaching transparent and reproducible methods of quantitative research.

The period of the Fellowships will be from June 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $5,000.

The target date for applications is April 8, 2019. Early inquiries and expressions of interest are encouraged. Please contact us at
