Research Assistant (Employment Discrimination and Vision Impairment Project) - UniMelb

This position involves the statistical analyses of individual and household data, such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers or the longitudinal Household, Income and Labour Dynamics Australia Survey.

In addition, the level of social inclusion or social connectedness will be explored as far as feasible through quantitative surveys. The analyses will form the basis for a report that will inform the activities and advocacy of Vision Australia. This is a casual position for approximately 2.5 days per week for 6 months.

About you:
