Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Child and Family Policy and Programs - Northwestern University

The Northwestern University Two-Generation Research Initiative at the Institute for Policy Research is seeking a postdoctoral research scholar with a PhD in psychology, public policy, economics, or other relevant social science discipline. We expect this position to start summer/fall 2019.

The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to work with Drs. P. Lindsay Chase-Lansdale, Teresa Eckrich Sommer, and Terri Sabol to conduct independent analysis of quasi-experimental and experimental studies. Experience with advanced quantitative methods is preferred.

The multidisciplinary team is at the forefront of developing theory, programmatic design, and research underlying two-generation initiatives, which invest in the education of parents and children simultaneously. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct evaluations of existing two-generation programs using surveys, direct assessments, program administrative data, and video- and audio-recorded interactions.

The position will be a one-year appointment with renewal for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance and available funding. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, first-authored scholarly writing sample, and the names of three references to Marisa Sclafani at marisa.sclafani@northwestern.edu. Review of applications will begin January 15, 2019.
