CASID is seeking a Graduate Student in International Development Studies, or a related discipline, to conduct a fulsome analysis of the 2021 CASID Membership Survey results and to write a 10-12-page report of the results (including tables, charts and graphs) for the CASID Executive Committee.
In 2021, the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID) conducted membership survey in order to ensure that CASID’s priorities, policies and activities are aligned with those of our members. At that time, we made a clear commitment to the membership to make specific and immediate changes based on the results of the survey. CASID members provided 105 survey responses in English and 5 survey responses in French. The survey included 57 questions, with a mix of qualitative and quantitative elements. The survey had 37 quantitative questions and 20 qualitative questions. The CASID Governance Committee conducted preliminary data analysis and present the preliminary results at the CASID Conference and Annual General Meeting in June 2021.
The results of the survey are expected to assist in an action-oriented response, identifying the organization’s success areas, problem areas, suggestions for improvement, and other similar categories. CASID will provide information, mentorship and support to the successful candidate, as needed/requested.
CASID is committed to fairly compensating graduate students for their work and has allocated a budget of $50 per hour for the survey analysis and report-writing, not to exceed 42 hours without specific and prior approval by the CASID Governance Committee.
Deadline for Expressions of Interest is November 25, 2021.
CASID informs the successful candidate by December 1, 2021.
Maximum analysis completion deadline by January 10, 2022.

The Canadian Association for the Study of International Development is a national, bilingual, interdisciplinary and pluralistic association devoted to the promotion of new knowledge in the broad field of international development.
To accomplish its mission to promote and support international development studies in Canada and abroad, CASID maintains a listserv and a blog to enhance communication and the sharing of information among interested and engaged IDS people worldwide. CASID organizes one annual conference and sponsors five regional events per year. The ambition of both the annual conference and the regional events is to bring together people working and studying in the broad field of international development to share opinions, experiences and research findings, to enhance networking and communication in the IDS community, and to facilitate the emergence of new development researchers and practitioners through active interaction and cooperation with Development Studies and related programs in Canadian universities and colleges.
CASID also oversees the publication of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies (CJDS). Established in 1980, the CJDS remains the only Canadian scholarly journal devoted exclusively to the study of international development.
