The IU Public Policy Institute is hiring four graduate students as Student Research Assistants to work up to 20 hours per week for the 2016-17 academic year through summer of 2017. Our Policy Analysts are working on projects across a diverse range of policy areas, including public safety and criminal justice, mental health, homelessness, poverty, public health, P-12 education, higher education, economic development, community development and intergovernmental relations.

Graduate students have the opportunity to work alongside analysts conducting data and spatial analysis, conducting surveys and interviews, and preparing reports and presentations. Job responsibilities will be wide-ranging, from support and administrative tasks to interacting with public and nonprofit civic leaders throughout the state.

If you are interested in making a difference through data-informed policy-making, the Institute is the place for you! Please send your resume to Debbie Wyeth at if you are interested in working with us.
