Job Description


NORC at the University of Chicago seeks to hire a Market Research Analyst (MRA) in its Business Development Office. The successful candidate will have a strong interest in empirical social science and public policy research and understand market research methodologies, with a particular emphasis on the federal and state government market.

While our main office locations are in Chicago, IL and Bethesda, MD, we will consider qualified candidates who prefer to work remotely.

To comply with the Executive Order issued by President Biden on September 9, 2021, all NORC employees and contractors - including those working remotely - must be fully vaccinated by Wednesday, December 8, 2021, as a condition of employment. This means that a 2nd injection (if applicable) must be given two weeks prior to the deadline (by November 24, 2021.) If you are an onsite employee starting prior to 12/8, NORCs onsite mandate supersedes the Federal mandate and you must already be fully vaccinated to work onsite at a NORC facility.


The Office of Business Development (OBD), provides operational support and strategic guidance to NORCs business developers. The OBD is situated in the Business Ventures and Innovation unit (BVI), which brings together NORC Labs, Business Development, BVI Services, and AmeriSpeak to launch new ventures and drive revenue growth in NORCs government and industry markets. BVI can be best described as a fast-paced, professional services/consulting environment.


The responsibilities of the MRA include understanding the needs for professional research, data management, and technical assistance services of governments, foundations, and other entities. The MRA supports business development efforts by working with research teams and individual researchers to assess needs; using public information sources to research existing and new leads; assessing NORCs prior project work and proposal writing for relevance to new opportunities; supporting the business development team in gathering, analyzing, and reporting business development information; writing proposal sections or other documents as needed, completing proposal forms and registrations.

  • Bachelors Degree from an accredited college/university.
  • At least 2 years of relevant experience in market research or in other areas of NORC activity
  • Demonstrated ability to lead projects independently from start to finish and provide insight
  • Ability to contribute to insight generation discussions based on data
  • Ability to put together detailed research reports and presentations based on data, identifying specific insights, and providing recommendations
  • Ability to effectively interact with colleagues
  • Ability to analyze large quantities of data, using business intelligence tools, presenting analytic results, and contributing to company data analysis initiatives
  • Strong computer skills are essential. Experience with Salesforce; Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, Tableau, and Adobe Creative Suite programs is desirable but not required. Experience with SPSS or another statistical package is a plus as is the ability to read Spanish or French
