Full Text of JOE Listing:

Abt Associates is a mission-driven, global leader in research, evaluation, technical assistance, and program implementation in a range of policy areas. We are recruiting new and experienced PhD economists with strong quantitative research skills, research design experience and knowledge of important domestic public policy areas. Much of our research is at the frontier of experimental and quasi-experimental evaluation methods, and Abt leads the field on technical assistance and implementation as well. We welcome applications that highlight experience with a variety of evaluation methods.

Abt’s Social and Economic Policy Division helps guide development of the nation’s prominent policies and programs. Our contributions have resulted in better policy on housing, community revitalization, education, workforce development, income security, food assistance, and in support of children, youth, and disadvantaged families. Our clients include federal agencies such as the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Education, Health and Human Services, Labor, and Veterans Affairs, as well as state agencies, foundations, and nonprofit organizations. We welcome applications that highlight experience in related policy areas.

At Abt Associates, we are committed to creating a lasting culture of equity, diversity and inclusion and recognize that in order to achieve full participation, our practices must be free of prejudice, discrimination, and bias that result in inequitable outcomes. Our ongoing commitment is focused on creating business practices that advance racial and social equity, investments in community impact programs for the benefit of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), and expand upon project work related to racial equity and social justice. We welcome applications that highlight candidates’ commitment to advancing equity.

Applications will be accepted through January 2022, but for full consideration, please submit application materials online through the JOE website by November 17, 2021. Please see the Abt Associates website for more details http://www.abtassociates.com.
