THEMIS survey data review and cleaning
Theorising the Evolution of European Migration (THEMIS) is a collaborative international research project led by International Migration Institute.
We are looking for temporary, short-term assistance in carrying out an extensive data cleaning. This is part of initial review of the quantitative data from three THEMIS surveys, carried out in London with Brazilian, Ukrainian and Moroccan communities.
Data from these surveys has already been entered onto a central database, using an online data entry platform. The dataset contains approximately 650 completed questionnaires, each being about 30 pages in length.
We are seeking an assistant with previous experience of working with survey data, including carrying out detailed data quality reviews and data cleaning, and who is able to show evidence of a systematic approach to tasks, of great attention to detail and working independently. Knowledge of syntax developed for data checking would be an advantage.
The work would need to start from mid-July and has been estimated to take approximately 30 hours.
THEMIS looks at the way in which patterns of migration to Europe develop. The project focuses on the conditions that encourage initial moves to become established migration systems. Based on field research, its aim is to bridge the theories on the initiation and continuation of migration, and to integrate the concept of agency in the systems theory approach to migration.

Applications with CV and a 1 page summary of your relevant skills and experience should be sent by 1 July to THEMIS Project Co-ordinator, Kate Prudden: firstname.lastname@example.org
