Postdoctoral Research Associate

The Annenberg Institute is seeking a postdoctoral research associate for a two‐year fellowship (one-year renewable). The post-doctoral associate will participate in collaborative research activities with our affiliated faculty, including Susanna Loeb and others, on issues related to US PK-12 education policy. We seek fellows with interests in developing and applying their skills in rigorous education policy analysis. Applicants should have a substantive interest and experience doing quantitative (or mixed-methods) research in PK-12 issues.

The associate will receive mentorship and training from the faculty sponsors, primarily through an active research apprenticeship and collaboration. In addition, they will be part of the broader Annenberg Institute community including faculty and students at Brown University, visiting faculty and students, and other postdoctoral fellows.

Candidates should have a PhD in Education, Economics, Sociology, Public Policy, or a related field by the beginning of the postdoctoral fellowship. Candidates should have strong substantive expertise in PK-12 education policy and strong quantitative research skills. Applications with a record of successful publication and with project management skills are preferred. Review of applications will begin immediately.
