About the Consortium on Race, Gender and Ethnicity at the University of Maryland College Park
The Consortium on Race, Gender and Ethnicity’s (CRGE) mission is to promote intersectional scholarship that examines dimensions of inequality through the lived experiences of historically underrepresented minorities and also provide support through outreach, mentoring, education, and research experiences along with the high school to undergraduate and early career faculty trajectory. The Consortium’s vision is to create a university environment that promotes racial and ethnic diversity through sponsorship of intersectional research, collaboration, and mentorship of historically underrepresented minority scholars.
About the Opportunity
Since 2015, CRGE has organized the week-long Intersectional Qualitative Research Methods Institute (IQRMI). Few training institutes in the country focus on qualitative research methods and, currently, none incorporate discussions regarding the intersections of race, gender, class, ethnicity, and other dimensions of inequality.
Specific areas of research include the following:
- Advancing innovation in knowledge and practice in child welfare and juvenile justice systems
- Promoting economic, social, and educational opportunities for working families
- Creating community change for families
- Addressing health disparities and inequality
The goals of the institute are to:
- Enhance qualitative research and writing skills
- Develop critical intersectional perspectives for designing and interpreting research
- Develop and hone navigational skills to successfully negotiate academic career paths
How To Apply
Each year CRGE receives an extraordinary number of applications from qualified candidates which makes for a competitive pool. In order for your application to receive full consideration, please complete this application and be prepared to upload the following two documents:
- A current copy of your CV
- A letter of support on official letterhead from the Department Chairperson, or Dean of the school or college of your academic appointment
- In addition, you will be asked to submit a short bio (150 words or less) and answer the following question:
- Please describe one completed research project that has collected qualitative or mixed methods data, including interviews, focus groups, photovoice, or observation data, in 500 words or less. The description must include: 1) the intersectional research purpose and sample data available to analyze at IQRMI; and 2) an explanation of how IQRMI can be useful in helping you to employ preliminary data analysis for publication in a peer-reviewed journal or for a grant submission.
