Call for Applications: Poverty and Social Policy Postdoctoral Scholar, Columbia University

September 1, 2021


Applicants must have a PhD in economics, public policy, demography, social work, sociology, or a related discipline. 


The Center on Poverty and Social Policy at the Columbia University School of Social Work is accepting applicants for two postdoctoral scholar positions. Scholars will work with faculty and staff to analyze data on trends and levels of poverty and related outcomes and to evaluate the impact of current and proposed social policies on vulnerable population subgroups such as children and young adults. Cutting across the work is a focus on racial inequalities and structural racism, in particular the need to better understand the impact of anti-Black racism on poverty and social policy and to develop and implement anti-racist social policy in the United States. The postdoctoral fellowship is for two years, with the option to renew for a third year contingent on performance and funding.
