TEMPORARY RESEARCH ASSISTANT FOR DATA COLLECTION
Research Assistance – pay on hourly basis, 150 hours
A member of the JBS Finance and Accounting Faculty, Amir Amel-Zadeh, is hoping to arrange some research assistance in the months of March/April/May 2013.
The work involves searching for and recording the earnings forecasts of US takeover bidders. This requires some detective work examining SEC filings and press reports on databases such as Factiva and Capital IQ.
There is some flexibility about timing and about how much work would be required. Some of it might not need to be done in Cambridge. An initial meeting will be arranged in Lent term to discuss details and scope of the project.
The pay is on an hourly basis, to be discussed. An estimated 150 hours of research assistance is required in the first instance. The work is relevant to someone who intends to pursue/ is pursuing a PhD and may also be attractive to non-PhD students who are interested in the takeover process, and could be useful on the cv in some circumstances.
For more information please contact Amir Amel-Zadeh (email@example.com).
