Want to put your data skills to use for the greater social good? Consider applying for this research assistant opportunity with the Center for Women’s Welfare!
The Center for Women’s Welfare at the School of Social Work researches issues around income inequality and economic opportunity to advance economic justice for women and their families. Its primary tool is the Self-Sufficiency Standard, an alternative measure of poverty used throughout the nation that measures how much income is needed to meet basic living needs without additional public or private support.
This is where you can help!
The Center for Women’s Welfare is seeking a work-study eligible student research assistant to contribute to the calculation of the Self-Sufficiency Standard. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in applied research–particularly those interested in public policies impacting low-income populations.
The research assistant will gain experience compiling and analyzing data, producing tables and charts in Excel and Tableau, and proofreading reports for publication. The position is available for the academic year with the possibility of continuing, depending on funding.
