Researcher, Survey-Sampling

NERA Economic Consulting ( ) is a global firm of experts dedicated to applying economic, finance, and quantitative principles to complex business and legal challenges. For over half a century, NERA's economists have been creating strategies, studies, reports, expert testimony, and policy recommendations for government authorities and the world's leading law firms and corporations. We bring academic rigor, objectivity, and real world industry experience to bear on issues arising from competition, regulation, public policy, strategy, finance, and litigation. NERA's clients value our ability to apply and communicate state-of-the-art approaches clearly and convincingly, our commitment to deliver unbiased findings, and our reputation for quality and independence. Our clients rely on the integrity and skills of our unparalleled team of economists and other experts backed by the resources and reliability of one of the world's largest economic consultancies. With its main office in New York City, NERA serves clients from more than 25 offices across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

We have an opening for a Researcher/Junior Analyst to join the Survey and Sampling practice in our Philadelphia, PA or Washington, DC office. NERA is widely recognized as a leading provider of expertise in the use of rigorously designed surveys in various types of litigation disputes including Intellectual Property, Class Action and Labor. Such surveys may be used to evaluate consumer perceptions of trademarks and package design to determine consumers' use and awareness of product features or to evaluate the impact of claimed false or misleading advertising.

Your responsibilities may include drafting survey questionnaires; analyzing survey data using programs such as Excel and Stata; researching industry trends and competitor offerings; conducting academic literature reviews; drafting memos and expert reports; implementing sampling plans; creating exhibits and presentation materials; and participating in client meetings and conference calls.

NERA offers a challenging and rewarding professional experience with competitive compensation and benefits, and skills enhancement training.

Qualified candidates will have experience in social science research, specifically survey methodology, sampling, and statistics. Previous experience in litigation consulting is a plus, but not necessary.

We look for individuals with exceptional analytical and quantitative skills; intellectual curiosity and the ability to think critically; attention to detail; and excellent verbal, written, presentation, and organizational skills. NERA will provide challenging opportunities to those eager to take on many responsibilities and allow you to make significant contributions early in your career.
