My team at the NYC Dept. of Education is looking to hire a Policy Analyst. The
Policy Analyst would be responsible for both short-term, ad hoc analytical and
longer-term statistical research projects—all related to the use of student
outcomes data in education policymaking. The ideal candidate can work
independently to develop concrete, data-based answers to abstract questions,
work quickly and with attention to detail, and present results with clarity.
Strong Excel skills and comfort working with large datasets are required, and
experience with SAS or other statistical packages and SQL is preferred. Prior
relevant experience could include graduate work in statistics, economics,
quantitative public policy, or other related areas, employment in quantitative
consulting or finance, or high-level data-based policy research.
If you are interested, please send you resume to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Director, Business Intelligence and Analytics
