Job Description

This is a unique opportunity for those interested in building a career in a client-facing role or within the legal industry. Research Analysts are the foundation of Expert Institute’s Expert Search service and are responsible for sourcing, screening and vetting expert witness candidates who will aid in the litigation needs of attorney clients. You will spend much of your time interacting with subject matter experts via email and phone calls to determine each candidate’s suitability for the legal matter at hand. A valuable addition to a law firm’s workflow, Research Analysts act as consultants to provide the research and insight that clients need to make an informed, data-backed decision.

On a daily basis, you will:

  • Balance working on multiple cases with varying deadlines
  • Conduct background research to better understand the niche subject matter of each case
  • Identify and connect with existing contacts in our system, and reach out to brand new candidates to expand our network of professionals
  • Deliver thoroughly-researched expert recommendations
  • Build relationships with experts to gather relevant information about their qualifications, provide insight into our process, and follow up on any outstanding items.

No two projects are ever the same and the deliverables we provide our clients play a significant role in the outcomes of litigation. As a result, our Research Analysts must be insightful, pay close attention to detail, be great teammates and strive to create an outstanding client experience.

The hours for this job will be from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM CST.


  • Internship to 3+ years of relevant work experience
  • Bachelor’s degree preferred
  • A client-focused mindset, prior customer service experience is a plus

  • Ability to learn complex material and multitask
  • Continuous self-learner and a competitive drive
