NORC at the University of Chicago is an objective, non-partisan research institution that delivers reliable data and rigorous analysis to guide critical programmatic, business, and policy decisions. Since 1941, our teams have conducted groundbreaking studies, created and applied innovative methods and tools, and advanced principles of scientific integrity and collaboration. Today, government, corporate, and nonprofit clients around the world partner with us to transform increasingly complex information into useful knowledge.

Are you a self-motivated, people person looking to make meaningful contributions through work that impacts the nation? NORC's field interviewer opportunity offers a flexible role where you will engage with all types of people in a clinical setting to examine effects of subsidies for family planning services. The aim of the study is to provide estimates of the consequences of eliminating funding for family planning services by quantifying the differences in various life outcomes for women who do and do not receive subsidies for contraceptives through randomized intervention. Our field interviewers play close attention to details, making sure all data is appropriately recorded so our researchers can use the information you collect to learn more about how our world works. Own your workload, while still being a team player sharing accurate and thorough data reports with colleagues in a timely fashion.

As an interviewer on the project, you will be staffed at selected Planned Parenthood clinics. Participants will be asked three eligibility questions and interviews will be done in-person at the clinics on a tablet or online. Patients completing the eligibility questions will receive $10 cash. Patients completing the baseline survey at the clinic will receive $60 cash.

Attend NORC's paid training to ensure you have the tools you need to be a successful field interviewer. In-person trainings will take place in Michigan, in early August 2020. We'll pay to get you to the trainings! In addition to standard NORC general and project training, there will be one-two days dedicated to a clinic visit with mentoring by experienced staff.
