Overview of RAND

The RAND Corporation is a research organization that develops solutions to public policy challenges to help make communities throughout the world safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. RAND’s research and analysis address issues that impact people everywhere, including security, health, education, sustainability, growth, and development. Headquartered in Santa Monica, California, RAND has close to 1,800 people from approximately 50 countries working in offices in North America, Europe, and Australia, with annual revenues of more than $308 million.

RAND is nonprofit, nonpartisan, and committed to the public interest.  Our research is sponsored by government agencies, charitable trusts, and community nonprofits. In addition, we rely on philanthropic support to pursue visionary ideas; address critical problems that are under-researched; shape emerging policy debates; and devise innovative approaches for solving acute, complex, or provocative policy challenges. RAND values objectivity and integrity in both its research processes and internal interactions. We emphasize a collegial environment that respects the contributions and dignity of all staff.

Position Description

The RAND Corporation is seeking master's level statisticians to work on multi-disciplinary research teams across in-demand areas of research. Candidates should be well-organized, self-motivated, analytical thinkers who can adapt to changing work environments across projects. Statistical Project Analysts typically work closely with Ph.D. statisticians and other specialists to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to research, analysis, and problem solving. Common tasks for this position include data organization, database development, statistical computing and modeling, interpretation and discussion of results with research teams, auditing data quality, creation of publication-ready graphs and tables, documentation of data and analyses, and drafting methods and results sections of peer-reviewed papers and reports. Statistical Project Analysts’ careers typically progress by building technical and substantive knowledge and problem-solving skills. Many analyses and most database development use SAS; however, many teams use R or Stata.
