Qualitative Researcher Job Description

A qualitative researcher seeks to understand human behavior by studying people’s personal experiences and perspectives—both their experiences of the world and their experiences with others.

A qualitative researcher asks questions that are not easily answerable by objective measures, such as asking how a person feels when he or she sees a certain building or tree.

A qualitative researcher generally does not conduct controlled experiments, but rather studies people’s opinions and behaviors using surveys and interviews.

A qualitative researcher compares and contrasts the experiences of respondents in order to gather insights about particular topics of interest.

The researcher also analyzes the data to determine what findings are significant or important.
