Full Text of JOE Listing:

Full-time fellowships begin in Fall 2022. All offered positions will be remote and location flexible within the United States. Fellows will serve at least a one year term, with longer term fellowships preferred.

The work and role of OES is unique and includes directly designing, implementing, and analyzing behavioral interventions through randomized evaluations in a large-scale federal policy environment. OES Fellows apply promising interventions at a national scale, reach millions of people, and work closely with key decision makers in government. Fellows design and direct high-impact projects while benefiting from a dynamic team and flexible federal work environment.

Fellows and Associate Fellows scrub into ongoing project portfolios, and build out additional projects in line with agency priorities. Their primary focus is to:
- Drive implementation on 3-5 evaluations to translate findings from the social and behavioral sciences into concrete recommendations, including through collaborating with agency partners to ensure:
- intervention ideas and the design meet agency goals;
- field experiments are implemented as planned; and,
- results implications are clearly understood
- Work directly with agency collaborators to design and rigorously test interventions
- Perform data analysis and interpretation
- Distill findings into reports, policy memos, and academic publications
