We welcome inquiries about becoming part of MEDSL as an affiliate institution or expert, or simply learning more about what we do.
Election Science Teaching Resources
Over the years, there has been discussion about starting a database of resources and teaching aids for people who teach election science classes. We have begun to develop this database, which can be accessed at the link below. If you have questions about the resources offered, or have your own resources to contribute, please reach out to us.
Data Analytics User Group and Listserv
As the number of people providing data analysis to election agencies grows, so does the value of creating a professional community of election administration data analysts. We are working to jump-start a user group and related listserv intended for data analysts who work for federal, state, and local election agencies. If you are interested in learning more or joining the group, please get in touch.
MEDSL hosts the Boston/Cambridge Election Science Working Group at MIT, a monthly gathering of faculty, graduate students, and other researchers who are interested in the scientific study of elections. All meetings are on the MIT campus in Room E53-482.
Our lab also sponsors conferences and workshops at MIT and elsewhere throughout the year. Click on an upcoming event below for details on date, time and location, or follow the link to explore our archive of past events.
We do not have any current job openings, but you can follow our newsletter and social media for updates on opportunities. If you are interested in an MIT Undergraduate Research Opportunity, please contact us.
