The Public Interest Network is hiring Research Associates to help launch a multi-year research project in support of our advocacy and campaign work and to help shape the future directions of the environmental and public interest movements.
What Is The Public Interest Network?
The Public Interest Network is a network of more than a dozen nonprofit groups working to save the planet, advocate for the public interest, and protect consumers. We grew out of the PIRG movement (Public Interest Research Group), which started in 1972. Over the years, we have added hundreds of staff, multiple state offices, and launched new organizations like U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, the National Environmental Law Center, and the Bold Alliance.
Research Team Mission
Research Associates will advance The Public Interest Network’s mission, which is to get people thinking about how the world is changing rapidly, and how society could be radically different; to concentrate on new problems arising from our changing world; and to advocate and campaign for policy solutions to those problems.
Research Associates Job Description
We are looking for 2 to 4 Research Associates to complete research projects into a variety of topics, culminating in reports, datasets, white papers, and other content that would be suitable for presentation at academic conferences or publication in outlets such as The Atlantic or Vox.
