Introducing Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Research Alliance

The Research Alliance is pleased to invite applications for two Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions, which will focus on the study of inequalities in NYC education. We are actively seeking candidates who represent diverse backgrounds and perspectives, as well as groups historically underrepresented in academia.

Fellows will work closely with Research Alliance senior leadership on two emerging research priorities, in the context of the nation’s largest school district: 1) examining the causes, consequences, and potential solutions to educational inequities in NYC, and 2) representing the full educational landscape of NYC by incorporating charter school information into our pre-k through college database.

Individuals completing the fellowship will gain hands-on experience developing and executing ambitious research plans, authoring high-profile public reports, and working closely with practitioners and policymakers, including at the NYC Department of Education. The Fellows will make important contributions to core projects at the Research Alliance, while building their skills for conducting education research in collaboration with policymakers and practitioners.
