University of Notre Dame
Senior Research Associate
Center for Sport, Character & Culture (CSCC)
Start Date: September 1, 2000 (flexible)
Salary: $32,000 - $38,000
This is a three-year, nontenure track position with a possibility of renewal. The position will be funded through a research grant to the CSCC. The Senior Research Associate would be one of four researchers on the project.
In brief, the research is designed to assess the relationship between sport participation and "character development." There are four components to the investigation. The first will assess relationships among motivational, social, and moral variables, on the one hand, and sport involvement on the other. For this component, classroom surveys will be administered in both public and private schools to children in the fifth, seventh, ninth, and eleventh grades; a subset of these children will be followed longitudinally. The second component examines how the moral and motivational "culture" of sport teams is formed and how it, in turn, influences participant development and behavior. We will focus particularly on football, soccer, basketball, and baseball/softball. The third component will employ semi-structured, in-depth interviews to probe how children deal with experiences of success and failure, what lessons they perceive they have learned from sport, how their spiritual or religious perspective informs their sport experience, and how they make moral decisions, both inside and out of sport. The final component of the project involves meeting with a committed group of coaches over time to develop new strategies of "coaching for character."
The Senior Research Associate will be employed full-time to work on all four components of the research project, with particular focus on the first two. Job responsibilities include (but are not limited to): coordination with school and sport team personnel, instrument development, data collection, data analysis, record keeping, supervision of student interns, and preparation of manuscripts. Since the first two components of the investigation will entail the development of new assessment tools, familiarity with issues of psychological measurement, including means for establishing validity and reliability, is helpful.
Desired job qualifications include a collaborate work style, competence in both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, familiarity with the culture of youth sports, thorough knowledge of two or more of the research literatures relevant to the project (achievement motivation, self-theory, coaching/leadership, the social psychology of sport teams, moral development, character education), and excellent writing skills.
Women and people of color are especially encouraged to apply.
Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and two letters of reference by June 1, 2000 to:
Drs. David Shields & Brenda Bredemeier, Co-Directors, Center for Sport, Character & Culture, 202 Brownson Hall, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN 46556.
