ABOUT THE POSITION
Frontier Group policy analysts work on a range of issues, and develop expertise in a few. We write reports, op-eds and blog entries that insert the results of our research into the public debate. We develop training materials, fact sheets and social media ideas for advocates and organizers.
We need you to have the drive, creativity and skills to take complex data and distill it into clear, powerful conclusions that are easy to communicate to decision-makers and the public. Ideally you have experience with designing analytical approaches, applying core statistical concepts and translating scientific information for a lay audience. Additionally, experience with modeling, geospatial analysis, database design, and/or the development of on-line and mobile database tools will be considered a strong plus.
Candidates must have at least two years of experience in public interest advocacy, journalism, or policy analysis and development, OR an advanced degree in a relevant field plus some experience in public interest advocacy, journalism, or policy analysis and development. We evaluate candidates based on writing ability, experience in political or public interest work, academic record, and reasoning and research skills. We especially look for candidates who are "quick studies," function well under deadlines, and have demonstrated both leadership and the ability to work well as part of a team, especially in a social change-driven context. Qualified candidates must have a track record of excellent judgment and discretion and the ability to oversee significant projects.
