Full Text of JOE Listing:

The WORLD Policy Analysis Center (WORLD) is the first and largest data center examining social and economic policy globally. Under the leadership of Dr. Jody Heymann, Dean of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, WORLD’s research team analyzes the state of constitutional rights, laws, and public policies in all 193 UN member states in a range of critical areas, including education, health, environment, adult labor and working conditions, child labor, poverty, equal rights and discrimination, childhood, gender, marriage, families, aging, and disability. WORLD makes its findings publicly accessible to policymakers, citizens, civil society, and researchers in the form of global maps, data tables, and policy analyses.

The Research Manager will manage and provide senior-level oversight for the work of a large multidisciplinary team, support the overall strategic development of WORLD at UCLA, play a leadership role in grant writing and development of new initiatives, and manage the delivery of outputs for existing global projects.
