Description: The UC Davis School of Education and Department of Psychology have recently received funding from the U.S. Department of Education Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) program. The GAANN program was designed to attract graduate students from underrepresented groups into a variety of specialized fields with too few highly skilled workers. GAANN awards in the area of psychometrics address a national need to develop expertise in student assessment and in rigorous quantitative research methods, in an environment in which tests are used with increasingly high stakes for students, teachers, and schools despite growing awareness that tests do not always consistently reflect the learning of all students.

GAANN Fellows will undergo rigorous methodological training while also learning about measurement techniques specifically designed to develop and evaluate measures used with English language learners, students at risk of behavioral maladjustment, and students with disabilities. They will also participate in training in higher education pedagogy and take on at least one substantial teaching responsibility.

Qualifications: We seek applicants for a Ph. D. in Education or in Psychology who have a strong quantitative background. Students will concentrate in Educational Assessment, Psychometrics & Quantitative Research Methods with an emphasis on the assessment of students with special needs. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or residents, and eligible for financial assistance. Members of underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply.

Description: The Congressional Budget Office is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. CBO’s Budget Analysis Division seeks an analyst to work in its Income Security and Education Cost Estimates Unit, which is responsible for preparing multiyear budget projections and producing cost estimates for legislative proposals related to education, income security, nutrition, and housing programs. The analyst will be responsible for preparing budget projections and cost estimates for some of those program areas, including elementary and secondary education, Pell grants, and some aspects of the student loan programs. Much of that work necessitates quick turnarounds, in response to the needs of Congressional committees.

The Congress relies on CBO’s work to prepare its annual budget plans, review the President’s budgetary proposals, and assess the budgetary effects of legislation. CBO’s analysts work closely with Congressional staff and agency officials; they have wide-ranging responsibilities and often play a significant role in the legislative and budget processes.

A graduate degree in public policy, public administration, economics, or a related field is required, and some experience analyzing or working on education policy issues is desirable.

This position requires an analyst with a strong quantitative orientation, the ability to handle several analytic issues simultaneously, and the ability to independently complete written projects under tight deadlines. Strong oral and written communications skills are also required, especially the ability to communicate complex material clearly and concisely to colleagues, Congressional staff, Members of Congress, and the public. Experience using statistical software is essential (preferably SAS, though experience with similar software is acceptable).

How to Apply: Please submit a cover letter, résumé, salary history, brief writing sample, and contact information for three references online at www.cbo.gov/careers. Recent graduates must submit an unofficial copy of academic transcripts. Only complete applications will be considered. Although there is no deadline, this job opening may be closed when CBO has received a sufficient number of applications from qualified candidates. This position is governed by the Veterans Employment in Opportunity Act, as made applicable by the Congressional Accountability Act, as amended.

The policy focus of the work varies from year to year depending on the fellow’s Congressional placement.

The James Marshall Public Policy Fellowship with the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) will be available for 2015-2016, with a start date of September 1, 2015. The Marshall Fellow is appointed as an independent contractor, paid a stipend of $55,000 per year plus health benefits.

Applicants must hold a PhD or PsyD before the start of the fellowship and be a member of SPSSI. Candidates must demonstrate interest or involvement in the application of social science to social issues and policies, have a sound scientific background, and demonstrate sensitivity toward policy issues. Candidates should be interested in and knowledgeable about at least one current social issue such as homelessness, violence, adolescent pregnancy, child abuse, etc. Candidates must be able to communicate effectively both orally and in writing. Individual initiative and an ability to work cooperatively with others having diverse viewpoints are critical.

  • A 1000 word biographical statement of experience and interest in policy activities and/or social issues, career goals, interest in the position, placement priorities, and objectives desired from the Fellowship. Please indicate preference for either a one- or a two-year Fellowship commitment. 
  • A 600 word briefing statement using social science data and related information to inform a legislator about a specific social issue of your choice. 
  • Three letters of reference addressing applicant's abilities, experience, and motivation as related to this position.

Post-doc Fellowship: LINK Research Lab of University of Texas at Arlington - Arlington, TX 

Location: Arlington, TX
Posted: February 23, 2015
Deadline: March 16, 2015
Compensation: Full-time
Click here to apply online 

Description: The relationship between work and formal education is changing. A traditional view holds that formal education prepares individuals for a lifetime of employment. Education in this view is event based. Essentially, once the degree has been completed, the individual moves into the workforce. However, as a result of the complexities and challenges associated with the modern economy, this model is no longer the norm. The traditional full time student is now a minority in the USA, as part time learners and mid-career masters students and alternative programs (such as competency based and online learning) increase in numbers. The nature of work and employment is also changing, as routine labor is increasingly automated. Bill Gates recently stated that within a decade, 50% of today’s jobs will be automated. The repercussions that this has for the economy and the quality of life for people are significant. The impact on the future of universities and colleges, specifically in relation to how higher education prepares individuals for employment, is an important area of research. The skills/employment gap refers to the relationship between what learners know and can do when they graduate and what employers expect. A second gap, that of developing the whole person (such as in a liberal arts education) versus developing an individual for primary employment, also exists as work moves to a creative economy. The balance between formal education, learning, work, creativity, and knowledge advancement will be the primary focus of this post doc position.

Qualifications: Applicants will have a completed, or soon to be completed, PhD in areas related to this position with research experience using job and labor statistics, a strong background in digital learning pedagogies in higher education.

Research Faculty Associate Position in Health Promotion: The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health - El Paso , TX

Location: El Paso, TX
Posted: January 19, 2015
Deadline: Until filled
Compensation: Full-time
Click here to view full job posting 

Description: We are seeking a doctoral researcher to collaborate with on health promotion research, including evaluations of community health partnerships, community health worker interventions, and self-help support groups. Health outcomes addressed include substance use, physical activity, mental health, and cancer, with an emphasis on the prevention of health problems. Interventions take place in both the United States and Mexico, although travel to Mexico is not expected. The Faculty Associate position will involve project management tasks such as coordination with community partners, survey development, data management, analysis, and manuscript preparation. The individual will also be supported in pursuing funding as principal investigator.

The El Paso Regional Campus is one of six campuses in the School of Public Health. Our doctoral program in health promotion is ranked #1 in the country. The school is part of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, which has over $250,000,000 in research expenditures per year.

El Paso is a city of about 700,000 people with a low cost of living. The city is unique in that a mountain, which is a state park, cuts through the middle of it. The sun shines like in Phoenix but it is not as hot because of the elevation (~4,000ft). El Paso is also ranked as the safest city in the U.S. despite high rates of poverty. The culture is substantially different than other parts of the U.S. and it’s an excellent place to study contextual influences, the need for adaptation, and generalizability. Juárez, Mexico (population 1.3 million) is part of the same metropolitan area, and provides unique opportunities for cross-cultural comparisons.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will have outstanding oral and written communication skills, along with quantitative research skills. Qualitative research experience and Spanish language skills are also valued. A doctoral degree in public health, psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, or another relevant discipline is required.

How to Apply: Applicants must apply here. Only applications received through the online system will be considered. Questions about the position should be directed to Louis Brown, louis.d.brown@uth.tmc.edu or 915-747-8506.

Similarly, because the R&E Unit is a relatively fresh creation of the Foundation, our work continues to evolve and expand in new and non- traditional ways.

Interested applicants must have a graduate degree at the master’s or doctoral level (or equivalent terminal degree) and at least 5+ years of experience in designing and conducting research and/or evaluations; analyzing data; interpreting results; and applying lessons learned, preferably in the fields of public health, public policy, and the social or health sciences,such as, but not limited to: demography, economics, international development, medical sciences, and sociology.

Applicants must demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and applications of descriptive and inferential statistics, regression analysis, sampling and power calculations, and experimental design (including randomized control trials). Familiarity with modern statistical packages (e.g., Stata, SAS, R, SPSS) is required. Though not required, extensive experience programming in statistical packages is a plus. With respect to qualitative research skills, we seek applicants who are familiar with the design and analysis of in-depth interviews, focus groups, and document content analysis. Ideal applicants will possess a mix of both quantitative and qualitative skills. Excellent writing, communication, and inter-personal skills are required, as is demonstrated experience at being a constructive team member. Applicants must be willing to travel as needed, about 30%. Having published in peer-reviewed journals is desirable but not required.

How to Apply: Interested applicants are asked to respond as soon as possible by sending a Vitae (or resume) and a cover letter to the attention of Dr. Sandra G. Garcia, Director of Research and Evaluation at the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, 222 Kiewit Plaza, Omaha, NE 68131, OR by email to: admin@stbfoundation.org.

Candidates’ research may focus on populations in domestic and/or global contexts. Particular consideration will be given to candidates doing cutting edge work in the design, implementation, and practice of public health interventions (e.g., integrating multiple levels of analysis across the biopsychosocial continuum), as they relate to dissemination and implementation science and broader social change.

Teaching: The department is committed to preparing students as public health leaders with broad expertise in public health practice and intervention design, implementation and evaluation. The ideal candidate will be able to teach undergraduate and graduate courses related to program planning, program management, and program implementation and dissemination. Priority will be given to candidates who can support other departmental instructional needs, such as program evaluation, research methods (especially qualitative methods and mixed methods), health behavior theories, maternal and child health, global health, and community engagement.

How to Apply: To apply, interested individuals should submit by email (a) a cover letter outlining their qualifications (including a brief synopsis of research and teaching interests, as well as perceived fit with the position), (b) a detailed 2-3 page research statement, and (c) a current CV to:
