The Project for Excellence in Journalism is looking for several people to code content for $15/hour (20-30 hours each week), plus benefits.
PEJ is a research organization funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and initiated by journalists in order to analyze media. PEJ will soon be formally aligning with the Pew Research Center and moving into their downtown Washington, DC offices.
Members of the coding team will conduct detailed analysis of content gathered from various news organizations. This involves systematic reading and interpretation of news articles. In addition, coders will enter data into a collective database, assist with the collection of news materials, and assist with the maintenance of PEJ’s media archive. Experience with content analysis and social science research is helpful, but not necessary. Training will be provided.
The job begins July, 2006. Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter and references to:
