Employment Opportunities

Available Positions

The Center for Survey Research (CSR) at Indiana University (IU) is seeking a Database Developer/Data Manager to join our team. For more than 40 years, the CSR has advanced knowledge and humankind by helping researchers plan for, gather, and analyze data across dozens of fields, including the behavioral and health sciences, medicine, public policy, business, and education. In recent years, we have been part of IU’s Grand Challenges program working with teams of faculty and community partners to address large-scale problems facing humanity, including health promotion and disease prevention, environmental change, and the addictions crisis.

We are a team-managed organization that empowers employees through extensive professional development opportunities and the development of high-performing teams that play to our individual strengths. We are committed to work-life balance, and we foster an environment which inspires extraordinary performance and innovation by bringing high levels of positive energy and enthusiasm to our work. We value diversity, equity, and inclusion as an essential component in successfully meeting our mission.

This position will lead database development and ongoing data management as well as development of data systems and tools that are needed to design, implement, monitor, and analyze CSR’s quantitative and qualitative research projects and overall operations. We are a small organization, so there are opportunities to flexibly craft the position to best fit the candidate’s skills and desired areas of professional growth now and in the future.

Prior experience and/or professional development in survey research is highly preferred. Please note that an extensive IT background is not needed; additional training can be provided to the right candidate who brings experience and/or training in survey research.

This position is eligible for remote work, subject to change in the future based on university policy and business needs.
