The Georgia Policy Labs seeks an outstanding two-year postdoc to be a key contributor on projects related to the safety, economic stability, and education of Georgia’s at-risk children and families.

This position is designed for an early-stage quantitative scholar who wants to use administrative data to answer crucial policy questions through rigorous analysis. We hope this position will serve as a launching pad for a successful academic career. No teaching is required.
