Searching for full-time research analyst at the University of Michigan

Greetings and Happy New Year!

My colleagues and I are hiring for a research BA or MA level research analyst to join our team at the Youth Policy Lab.

This position will start in May or June 2018 and last 1-2 years depending on the interest and fit of the candidate. This position would be a great fit for recent graduates looking for a bridge between undergraduate studies and graduate programs. It will also allow an individual build technical skills in preparation for work at a research institute or government agency. This position would be a good fit for students studying policy, economics, statistics, and information and data science, though students from all programs will be considered.

The Youth Policy Lab at the University of Michigan conducts applied research in the areas of education, health care, juvenile justice and workforce development to improve opportunities for young people in Michigan and beyond. We partner with state and local agencies, nonprofits and policymakers to develop and evaluate interventions for youth ages 0-25. For more information about the Youth Policy Lab and to learn more about our current projects, visit:

If interested, email Kelly Lovett ( with resume and cover letter. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled.
