The Repair Lab at the University of Virginia seeks a Postdoctoral Research Associate to help build the Environmental Justice Policy Clinic& (EJPC). The goal of the EJPC is to consolidate legal and policy resources for addressing environmental problems, and to promote community-centered, equitable, and democratic approaches to policymaking at all levels. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work closely with faculty affiliated with the Repair Lab and the Lab’s practitioner-in-residence to build the EJPC from the ground-up, imparting their vision to projects related to environmental justice that answer policy-relevant questions.

The postdoctoral fellow will operate in an administrative capacity managing the operation of the EJPC. The position does not include teaching obligations. It is expected that approximately 75% of the postdoctoral associate’s time will be spent working with the EJPC, 10% collaborating on related projects (e.g. Oral History Initiative and film series) across the Repair Lab and 15% will be on their own research.
