2 FT Position - San Francisco - Public Policy Institute of California - Research Associate
----- Forwarded by Asha Weinstein/SJSU on 05/04/2005 01:56 PM -----
Public Policy Institute of California has two fulltime Research Associate
positions open for application.
The first one is focused on aspects of the globalization of California's
economy & on international trade and investment more generally, while the
second one (scheduled to be posted on our webpage later today) looks at
issues relating to state and local government finance, intergovernmental
relations, state and local health policies, and social policy such as
welfare and immigration.
For both positions, candidates should have strong experience in quantitative
analysis and proven analytical ability, solid computer skills (most
importantly, SAS and/or STATA; also Excel, Lexis-Nexis & bibliographic
search engines, and ARC View), and excellent written and verbal
communication skills. 1-2 years of part-time but intense & substantive RA
work in academia could provide the appropriate level of skills. These
positions offer good opportunities for candidates with a policy interest who
are considering entering a PhD program in 2-3 years. This can also be a
good opportunity for candidates with a BA or Masters who are interested in
developing their research skills further but who don't have a well-defined
interest in pursuing additional graduate training.
