The University of Michigan seeks candidates to become active members of the Education Policy Initiative. Our research group brings together a diverse set of scholars focused on the generation and dissemination of high-quality education policy research. The initiative disseminates best practices in education reform to local, state, and national policymakers and trains graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to conduct cutting-edge research in education. We work with agencies and nonprofits to answer questions about the clients they serve, the problems they seek to address and the effectiveness of their programs.
