PPIC is currently recruiting four research fellows, each with substantive knowledge and interest in one of these areas: Corrections and Criminal Justice, K–12 and Higher Education, Health and Human Services, and Public Finance.

Successful candidates will bring the ability to independently conduct policy research through outstanding quantitative research, qualitative research, writing, external policy engagement, and communication, and will have a PhD in criminology, demography, economics, education policy, health policy, political science, public policy, sociology, or a related discipline. Applications from candidates at all levels of experience are welcomed, from recent PhD’s to senior level researchers. A background in California policy research is an advantage, as is research experience on federal policy or on other states’ policy that is relevant to the California context.

PPIC offers a collaborative, intellectually stimulating, impactful work environment and competitive compensation and benefits. The positions are based in San Francisco or Sacramento.
