Research Opportunity for Graduate Students

Dear SoE Graduate Students;

 The School of Education has been contacted regarding a research opportunity for Graduate Students.  The PA Interbranch Commission is  

conducting a study of the death penalty in PA.  The study is being performed by Dr. John Kramer, highly-regarded researcher out of Penn State.  He is looking to hire 2 or 3 more coders to help in the review of Philadelphia capital case files from now until maybe the end

of September.   The pay is not much, but it would be terrific experience for any graduate student interested in conducting research.

 If you are interested in helping with this study, please contact Dr. Richardson at tr395@drexel.edu
