Senior Researcher Chapin Hall’s End Youth Homelessness Program

Jun 09, 2020

We posted a research position for the End Youth Homelessness team at Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago. We would be grateful if you could share it with potential candidates. The job’s location is listed as Chicago; that’s been the preference, but there may be flexibility for outstanding candidates—especially under current circumstances.

The position is a “Senior Researcher” position (0332) – to help us strengthen the research capacity of our team. This person will bring strong research methods skills to the team (e.g., sampling, rigorous evaluation of programs of policies, administrative data analytics, participatory research, equity-centered and culturally valid research, excellent research writing skills) as well as experience with very applied research for or within public systems/policy. We are particularly interested in potential researchers with strong quantitative methods expertise (e.g., statistics, econometrics, epidemiology, administrative data science/analysis), project leadership capacity, and ability to help us strengthen the evidence base at the intersections of racial equity and homelessness (or related outcomes/public systems). We might be in a position to hire an additional researcher over the coming months, however, so if someone brings more qualitative expertise with clear connections to our work, you could still encourage them to share their information with us.

Because we aim to build actionable evidence to help prevent and end youth homelessness, applicants need not necessarily have significant experience researching homelessness services if they bring experience of having worked in or with other public systems and services relevant to ending youth homelessness (e.g., education, legal systems, behavioral health systems, child welfare).
