The UN Development Group is rolling out a research initiative to inform the optimal configuration of the UN development system in support of the post-2015 development. In a collaborative effort across the UNDG agencies and working groups, a collective review of the current setup and positioning of the UN development system and a forward-looking assessment of whether the UN development system is currently well positioned to deliver effectively on the post-2015 agenda will be carried out.

ETS Research & Development (R&D) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2015–2016 Educational Testing Service (ETS) Fellowship and Internship Programs in R&D.
The goal of the ETS R&D Fellowship and Internship Programs is to promote quality and distinction in educational assessment and related fields by supporting early-career scientists' and graduate students' participation in significant research and exposure to methodologies within the ETS environment. The programs also provide opportunities for talented scholars and students from diverse backgrounds — especially those from traditionally underrepresented groups such as African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, and American Indians — to pursue scientific research under the guidance of ETS researchers and psychometricians. These programs encourage research in areas such as:
  • Psychometrics
  • Validity
  • Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics
  • Cognitive and Developmental Psychology
  • Learning Sciences
  • Linguistics, Second Language Learning, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language
  • Speech Recognition and Processing
  • Teaching and Classroom Research
  • Statistics
  • Educational Data Mining
  • International Large-Scale Assessments
The ETS R&D Fellowship and Internship Programs seek applicants who either hold a doctoral degree or who are enrolled in a doctoral program in one of the fields mentioned above and who are interested in research opportunities. 
ETS is seeking graduate students for the Summer Internship Program in Research for Graduate Students. The program focuses on major research activities that will occur in 2015. Selected interns conduct research under the guidance of ETS mentors in Princeton, N.J. Graduate students who are currently enrolled in full-time doctoral programs in the areas listed above and who have completed a minimum of two years of coursework toward their Ph.D. or Ed.D. prior to the program start date are eligible to apply.
The Harold Gulliksen Psychometric Research Fellowship Program seeks graduate students who have completed their doctoral coursework and are at the dissertation stage of their program, working on a dissertation related to statistics, psychometrics, educational/psychological measurement or quantitative methods. Selected fellows study at their universities and carry out research under the supervision of an academic mentor and in consultation with an ETS researcher or psychometrician. This program's goal is to increase the number of well-trained scientists in educational assessment, psychometrics, and statistics.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship Programs are open to individuals who hold doctorates in specific disciplines of interest to ETS. This year we are seeking applications in the following areas of expertise: science cognition, teacher evaluation, K–12 language arts, math and science, and formative assessment and learning in English language learning assessment. The postdoctoral programs provide talented scholars an opportunity to conduct research under the mentorship of ETS researchers and psychometricians. Selected fellows work on ETS research projects and conduct their proposed independent research, which should be relevant to ETS's goals. ETS administers two postdoctoral programs — the ETS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, which supports scholars who have received their doctoral degrees within the last three years, and the Sylvia Taylor Johnson Fellowship in Educational Measurement, which supports those who received their doctoral degrees within the last 10 years. ETS is particularly interested in receiving applications for the Sylvia Taylor Johnson Fellowship in Educational Measurement from members of groups typically underrepresented in the field of educational measurement/psychometrics.
Information and application instructions for the programs are available on the ETS website athttp://www.ets.org/research/fellowships.
The application deadline(s) are as follows:
  • Summer Internship Program in Research for Graduate Students — February 1, 2015
