Full Text of JOE Listing:
Mathematica Policy Research is seeking economists to conduct applied research across an expanding series of critical policy areas. These areas include traditional policy fields such as education, health, labor, and family and social policy, as well as a growing list of more specialized fields such as obesity and nutrition, early childhood development, health information technology, and international policy.

RESEARCHERS: Researchers collaborate with senior staff to design rigorous methods for evaluating programs and policies, conduct analyses, draft papers and reports, and present findings to policy and professional audiences. Researchers should have strong analytic and quantitative skills and possess a Ph.D. in economics or a related social science field by summer 2013. They should also have a strong interest in working in a collaborative environment that emphasizes quality, rigor, critical thinking, and staff development. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential. Experience in policy research is a plus.

SENIOR RESEARCHERS: Senior researchers develop and design rigorous methods for evaluating programs and policies, direct research teams, conduct/oversee analyses, produce research reports, and present findings to policy and professional audiences. Senior researchers should have strong analytic skills and possess a Ph.D. in economics or related social science field, minimum five years of professional experience, and an established research record. The senior researcher positions require highly motivated, self-directed individuals, with strong interpersonal and management skills, who enjoy working in a collaborative environment that emphasizes quality, rigor, critical thinking, and staff development. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential.
