National Institute of Justice seeks Research Assistantship Candidates for 2015-2016 Academic Year

Topic Area: Research Examining Violence against American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) Women living in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages
Program Overview: Title IX, Section 904(a) of the Violence against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005 (VAWA 2005), Pub. Law No. 109-162 (codified at 42 U.S.C. § 3796gg-10 note), as amended by Section 907 of the Violence against Women Reauthorization Act, Pub. L. No. 113-4, calls for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to conduct analyses and research on violence against Indian women living in Indian Country and in Alaska Native villages. In conducting its analyses and research, these sections asks NIJ to conduct studies focusing on dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, sex trafficking, stalking, and murder, and to evaluate the effectiveness of responses to those violations.
NIJ has developed a comprehensive research program consisting of multiple projects that will be accomplished over an extended period of time. The capstone of NIJ’s program is the National Baseline Study (NBS). The NBS is the first study of its kind and is critical to quantifying the magnitude of violence and victimization in tribal communities and understanding service needs. The data collected in this 42-month study (2014-2017) is expected to provide reliable and valid estimates of the scope of the problem and aid in identifying possible solutions for addressing the needs of Native American women. Ultimately, NIJ’s VAIW research program is expected to produce a deeper understanding of the issues faced by Native American women living in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages and help formulate public policies and prevention strategies to decrease the incidence of violent crimes committed against AI and AN women.
The deadline for candidate submissions by GPDs is 5:00 PM ET January 23, 2015. For more information on NIJ’s RAP program, please go to
