Economic Analyst (EARN project), Economic Policy Institute
EARN is a network of state and regional groups that sway public opinion, win state policy victories, and collectively develop ideas. EARN groups are multi-issue state and regional think tanks. They use the full range of advocacy tools: research and policy development, communications, lobbying, and serve as key partners in state coalitions.
EARN works on many of EPI’s issues (e.g., jobs, wages, retirement security), but has also grown to work with other progressive organizations on many other issues ranging from health policy to the environment.
EARN staff at EPI provide leadership and support for EARN groups. We assist groups with a wide range of research, advocacy, and public policy activities; orchestrate collaborations; directly help in issue campaigns; and, make connections among EARN groups, and between EARN groups and national organizations.
There are currently 57 EARN groups in 42 states covering about 90% of the nation’s population. Together, EARN groups provide a substantial capacity to advance public policy at both the state and national levels.
The EARN team is looking to add a skilled economic researcher/analyst/advocate, to help state-based organizations advance a policy agenda in the states—one who brings strong research, quantitative, analytic, and writing skills.
Responsibilities of the job include collection and analysis of data with statistical software, such as SAS, analysis of policy proposals, research of literature and summarization of relevant background material, and close collaboration with EARN groups and national partners on issues, such as minimum wages, economic development, and unemployment insurance. The successful candidate will provide research and technical assistance in support of the flagship EARN initiative, The State of Working “XX State”, (the state-level reports modeled after EPI’s State of Working America publication), and will, with the rest of the “EARN @ EPI” team, work with EARN groups to shape the agenda for the annual EARN Conference (a gathering of local, state, and national researchers, policymakers, advocates, and state legislators).
Qualifications include a Bachelor’s degree in economics, public policy, or a related field, with a strong statistics competency and a basic understanding of econometric techniques; several months of work experience as a research assistant or performing a similar type of work; training in data analysis—including experience with statistical software, such as SAS; strong analytic and writing skills; and, the ability to work well with others. A master’s degree is a plus, as are substantive knowledge and expertise in specific subject areas, such as minimum wage, poverty reduction, or state-based economic development. Experience working with (or eagerness to learn) various forms of media also desirable.
Pay commensurate with experience. Excellent benefit package. EOE.
