Altarum is seeking a highly motivated research assistant with a strong commitment to community-driven policymaking. This position is ideal for a current graduate student and is available from August 2020 to June 2021 in Altarum’s Washington, DC office,* with the possibility of an extension.
This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a respected team of advocates, researchers, and others dedicated to making health policy decisions more responsive to community members’ needs. A particular focus of this position will be supporting state-based coalitions working to engage marginalized populations and achieve community-driven, culturally-relevant policy change.
*Due to COVID-19, Altarum’s Washington, DC office is currently closed. Staff will work virtually until the office re-opens.
About Community Voices for Health:
Community Voices for Health supports the work of grantees in 6 states focused on building a stronger engagement infrastructure that involves a broad range of people, especially marginalized and underserved communities, so their voices are heard in health policy decisions, their efforts to solve problems are supported, and their community networks are strengthened. As a result, we expect community engagement to be more:
• Inclusive and sustained, by expanding engagement techniques and involving previously marginalized communities;
• Informed, through community-engaged research; and
• Influential, by ensuring strong, sustainable pathways between community members and policymakers.
This project is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, with technical assistance provided by Public Agenda and Altarum.
The research assistant position is for 10-15 hours per week at $20/hour.
