About Calcutta Rescue (http://www.calcuttarescue.org/):

2. Planning systematic sampling of each slum area
3. Carrying out interviews with households
4. Problem-solving regarding logistics and survey adjustments (especially if a candidate starts early and will be involved with collecting pilot data)

All of the above will be carried out with the supervision/guidance of senior researchers.
