Position Description

Caring Across Generations is a cross-sectoral campaign of family caregivers, care workers, people with disabilities, and older Americans coming together to create a nation where everyone can live, work and age with dignity. Through policy and research, grassroots organizing, and culture change strategies, Caring Across is working to create large-scale, universal care infrastructure to meet the twenty-first century needs of families and caregivers of all kinds. The Campaigns Research Senior Associate will conduct social justice and policy-based research to influence the strategic direction of our 2022 Campaigns work. They will work closely with the Campaigns Director to collect and analyze a wide variety of data, including administrative survey, text, network, spatial, experimental, and image data. They will analyze a mix of state- and national-level quantitative data from the social justice landscape and qualitative observations from the field, in support of local projects. This data and research will pertain to policies around home- and community-based services (HCBS): supportive services designed to address the needs of people with functional disabilities, including older adults.
