Postdoctoral Research Associate in Education and Mixed Methods

The PSTC is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate with training in education and qualitative or mixed methods to work with Associate Professor Emily Rauscher and Professor Susanna Loeb on a sponsored project funded by the Gilead Foundation. Using near-random funding increases, mixed methods, and rigorous analyses to assess impact on education and health, the study will identify which types of spending are most beneficial for student well-being, particularly among Black and Latinx students and schools. The goal is to identify targeted funding strategies that build on local strengths and increase wellbeing through equity.
