The California Policy Lab (CPL) at University of California, Berkeley creates data-driven insights for the public good. Our mission is to improve the lives of Californians by generating evidence that transforms public policy.
The postdoc will work closely with faculty at UC Berkeley and with CPL’s government partners on data-driven projects related to criminal justice, education, social safety net, employment, and/or housing/homelessness. The position will give this early career scholar a chance to build their research portfolio by leveraging CPL’s existing partnerships with California agencies, including the FTB, DOJ and Department of Social Services.
Duties will include research design, data analysis, and co-creation of presentations, internal reports, and academic articles for publication. The postdoc will be expected to spend 50% of their time on CPL projects (some leading to co-authored papers) and 50% of their time on independent projects, subject to PI approval, that can draw on CPL's data infrastructure. The postdoc will be assigned a mentor from among CPL’s faculty affiliates with aligned research interests. The position does not include teaching obligations.
