Happy Wednesday, Readers! We have two interesting positions this week, one at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and another at the Data & Society Institute. Check them out!
The Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) is the nation’s preeminent think tank committed to achieving economic equity for women and eliminating structural and institutional barriers to women’s full participation in the workforce and society. IWPR’s mission is to build knowledge and evidence to support policies that help grow women’s economic power and influence in society, close inequality gaps, and improve the economic security and well-being of girls, women, and families. We generate the ideas that build power and economic equity for all women.
IWPR seeks a full-time Director, Program on Race, Ethnicity, Gender and the Economy to manage its research, campaigns and efforts focused on women and girls of color, their families, and communities. Specifically, the Program Director will help to build out IWPR’s program and efforts focused on building the long-term economic security and well-being of women and girls of color, their families and communities; conduct original research and policy analysis using intersectional and racial equity frameworks; organize convenings, symposia, and roundtables with national leaders, scholars, and practitioners and other key stakeholders on issues related to race, ethnicity, gender and the economy; and represent IWPR at events, conferences and convenings.

Data & Society Institute is an independent nonprofit research organization. They believe that empirical evidence should directly inform the development and governance of new technology. They study the social implications of data and automation, producing original research to ground informed, evidence-based public debate about emerging technology. Health and Data projects examine the extent to which new technologies can address historical disparities in data collection and access to healthcare–and, in turn, introduce new forms of inequity. Through empirical investigation, the Health and Data team seeks to understand the evolving and complex interdependence of our health and technology practices, including algorithmic decision-making in clinical care, bias in genome databases, ethical collection of data, healthy interactions with tech platforms and mobile devices, and the spread of health misinformation online.
The primary responsibility as a Researcher for the Health and Data Initiative will be to work in close collaboration with the Program Director on an empirical research project that studies worker’s perspectives and experiences of infection-related health monitoring, surveillance and data collection in frontline and high-risk workplaces. This qualitative research project also seeks to understand how personal health data captured in the workplace flows to third parties and how much employees are aware of how their data is used. Those who have prior experience conducting research with historically underrepresented communities are of particular interest for this role.
